Potassium Chloride (commonly referred to as Muriate of Potash or MOP) is the most common potassium source used in agriculture, accounting for about 95% of all potash fertilizers used worldwide. Greenway Biotech, Inc's Potassium Chloride fertilizer contains 62% Potassium.
Potassium helps regulate plant metabolism and affects water pressure regulation inside and outside of plant cells.
It is important for good root development. For these reasons, potassium is critical to plant stress tolerance.
The chloride content of Potassium Chloride can also be beneficial where soil chloride is low.
Recent research has shown that chloride improves yield by increasing disease resistance in crops.
In circumstances where soil or irrigation water chloride levels are very high, the addition of extra chloride with Potassium Chloride can cause toxicity.
However, this is unlikely to be a problem, except in very dry environments, since chloride is readily removed from the soil by leaching.
Increase plant vigor and disease resistance!
Potassium Chloride is an excellent source of potassium which aids healthy plant growth disease resistance.
Increase plant vigor and helps stiffen steams and aids in fruit formation.
Muriate of Potash is great for your root and tuber crops like carrots, beets, and potatoes as it promotes healthy root growth.
