Importance of potassium in plant growth:

    Potassium is a major plant nutrient and is an essential component of all living cells and metabolic processes
    Potassium also helps plants utilize other nutrients more efficiently especially nitrogen and phosphorus
    Potassium is required by the plant for respiration and transport of photosynthesis products
    It also plays a vital role in the activation of many enzymes
    Potassium requirement is greatest at the end of the growing season and is important in improving crop quality, fruit size, shape, color, firmness and shelf lifespan
    Potassium deficient plants will tend to grow slowly and develop poor root systems
    They are also more prone to stress from extremes of temperature, pests and disease

Benefits of using potassium nitrate:

    Potassium nitrate contains the essential plant elements, nitrogen and potassium and is ideal for use in hydroponics, fertigation, liquid blending and foliar application
    Potassium nitrate contains readily available nitrate nitrogen and readily available potassium
    Potassium nitrate is safe to use on a wide range of fruit, flower and vegetables crops
    For application rates, seek professional agronomic advice
