Muriate of Potash – Potassium Fertilizer
Potash 0-0-60 is a great source of potassium. Potassium is a primary plant nutrient that helps plants to grow vigorously and aids against plant nutritional diseases. Plants that grow below ground such as carrots, potatoes, and onions benefit greatly from Hi-Yield Muriate of Potash by promoting tuber and root growth.
Also known as MOP 60% and Red Potash, Muriate of Potash 60% is conventionally mined from potassium-rich salts, most commonly potassium chloride (KCl). The ore is ground down and then filtered out by suspension.
