Potash-based fertilizers

Potash fertilizer is the commonly used term for the soil fertilizer forms of potassium. The name comes from collection of wood ash in metal pots when the fertilizer benefits of this material were first recognized many centuries ago. It is a catalyst for many physiological and biochemical processes in plants. It is proactive in photosynthesis and formation of high-energy compounds, boosts vegetative growth and carries organic matter along the plant body. Below you can find a list of the major products we trade.

Muriate of Potash

Muriate of potash potassium chloride (KCl), a refined red or greyish red, cubic, crystalline compound that closely resembles common salt (sodium chloride). For agricultural use, potassium chloride is often called muriate of potash. The name “muriate” is derived from the term muriatic acid, which is a common name for hydrochloric acid. Over 90% of all processed potassium (K) is consumed as fertilizer and at least 78% of the K-salts consumed worldwide are muriate of potash. It may contain 48% to 62.5% K20 (39% to 61% K), and about 47% chlorine. Potassium fertilizer as muriate of potash added to the soil is 100% water-soluble. It is suitable for most of the crops except sugarcane, sugar beet, potato and tobacco. Annual consumption of muriate of potash in Bangladesh is around 150 thousand tonnes, all of it imported from abroad.

Sulphate of Potash

This is a rich source of potassium for encouraging flowering and fruiting in all plants, as well as promoting disease resistance. Indeed, potassium is required in larger amounts in vegetables, flowers, crop-bearing trees and in smaller amounts in lawns. Apply sulphate of potash around flowering plants to enhance flower bud development and flower color and quality and around flowering vegetables (like tomatoes and sweet peas) to develop crop size and flavor. Add sulphate of potash around all growing plants to increase stem strength in addition to a plant’s resistance to pests, disease, drought and frost.
