Potassium sulfate with chemical formula K2SO4 in industry called potassium, which is the unit of purity K2O. Potassium sulfate is the most widely used source of potassium and soil sulfur due to the lack of chlorine ions in the agricultural industry. Potassium sulfate is usually preferred for tobacco, pistachios, dates, fruits and vegetables.
Reasons for using potassium sulfate as fertilizer in agriculture:
Improving the performance and improving the color and taste of agricultural products
Increases crop resistance to pests, plant diseases and all kinds of environmental stress
Usable in any type of irrigation and foliar spraying solution
Usable in acidic and alkaline soils
Suitable for preventing nitrate accumulation especially in crops such as potatoes and ideal for salinity-sensitive plants (apples, pears, peaches, beans, carrots, lettuce, onions… ..) due to lack of chlorine
Leaching index and low salinity coefficient compared to other potassium fertilizers
Increase the nutritional value of products due to their positive effect on the production of vitamins, starches and sugars
PH reducer in the root rhizosphere region
Increases resistance to frostbite
Increases resistance to salinity and drought
Helps better absorb iron, phosphorus and minerals
It is recommended that you do not mix potassium sulfate with calcium-containing compounds because the precipitate of calcium sulfate is formed and the property of both substances completely disappears.
