Besides conventional fertilizer application by spreading, muriate of potash (MOP) can be applied as a water-soluble fertilizer through irrigation water. This method of supplying nutrients to plants is called ‘fertigation’.
Fertigation allows the delivery of the dissolved potassium directly to the root zone thus improving nutrient uptake by plants and ultimately improving the crop yield. Fertigation provides a more precise application of nutrients to plants, preventing run off which reduces fertilizer application rates, and thereof reducing the cost of agricultural production.
MOP produced by Uralkali is completely water-soluble, generates no precipitate and contains high nutrient concentration levels (min. 62% K2O).
