Chemical Name:Potassium chloride
QTY: 1 Kg of MOP
Features and benefits Muriate of Potash (MOP)
Potassium stimulates the growth of strong stems and gives the plant some disease resistance by promoting thickness of the outer cell walls.
Adequate potassium can reduce moisture loss from growing plants, thereby giving some drought resistance.
Potassium improves colour, flavour and storing quality of fruit and vegetables.
It is the most concentrated form of granular potassium and typically the most cost effective.
The even granule size allows for accurate spreading. It is commonly blended with SSP to supply major nutrients for pasture based systems
Occurs as a natural salt and after processing to cleanse out unwanted salts (especially common salt), it is usually compacted into ‘chips’ and screened to meet size specifications.
It is used extensively for fertilising pastures, sugar cane, fruit trees, vegetables, and other field crops.
