Potassium Nitrate 13:00:45

With 13% nitrate value with 45% of potassium, Potassium Nitrate (KNO3) is capable of contributing to the overall development of most crops. It is commonly used as a fertilizer for high-value crops that benefit from nitrate (NO3-) nutrition and a source of potassium (K+) free of chloride (Cl-). It is a regular requirement for growing nut trees, vegetables, field crops, and also for flora and fauna development.

Chemical Specification of Potassium Nitrate Fertilizer

Total Nitrogen (N) - 13%
Nitrate (NO3) - 13%
Phosphorous (P2O5) - 0%
Potassium (K2O) - 45%

Benefits of Potassium Nitrate Fertilizer

1. Nitrogen in Nitrate form which is readily available for uptake of plants.
2. Due to its high K20 contents it helps in longer shelf life & also strengthening immunity to plants.
3. Helps in increasing yield and quality.
4. It is free from chlorine contents, it has low salt index.

Compatibility with other fertilizers

It is easily mixed with other fertilizers. When it is blended with other fertilizers it is a good source of notarization and foliar nutrition. Almost all other agrochemicals can tolerate its composition. It is an ideal crop protection product. It is easy and safe for use by any experienced farm hand. Various pesticides are used to protect plants. It is compatible with the use of any other protection product. It is available in various compositions which make it versatile for blending with water or other components.

Applications of Potassium Nitrate Fertilizer

For regular fertigation is a better source of K. It is water soluble. It does not contain heavy metals which tend to destroy the plant structure. When the planting is in the second stage it should be applied. If the crop is sensitive to saline then this is good option to use. It is not volatile and there is no loss of nitrogen during application. It allows early maturity of the plant. Any crops that have specific requirements for growth, this product offers high-quality nutrition.
