Differences between Potassium Sulfate and Potassium Chloride in Agricultural Potash

The appearance of potassium chloride is white or light yellow crystals, sometimes containing iron salts in red. Soluble in water, is a high solubility of potable potash. For the use of basic fertilizer, such as grapes, watermelons, potatoes, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, peppers and other crops carefully used to avoid the “chlorine damage.” In addition, potassium chloride is not suitable for saline soil, but the green chloride in the chloride ions to promote photosynthesis and fiber formation and so on, cotton, linen and other fiber crops is particularly appropriate.
Potassium sulfate appearance of white or colored crystal or particles, is characterized by small moisture absorption, storage is not easy to agglomerate, soluble in water. Suitable for a variety of crops, can be used for basal, top dressing, and root top dressing. Potassium can generally be soil adsorption, will not be lost, but in the poor ability to maintain fertilizer on the sand to take a “small amount of meals” principle. Generally in potato, melons and other potassium on the use of the best results.
To correctly distinguish and use these two kinds of fertilizer, it should be noted that: the purchase of potash first look at whether the appearance of the above description; followed by the bag look, the implementation of standards; also can not simply consider the price, mainly to see its nutrient content.
