Potassium Sulfate 0-0-50

Fertilizer Brokerate Online Quote Request Form for Potassium Sulfate 0-0-50Potassium Sulfate is a very important product. It's used to supply potassium. Conventional agriculture, for the most part, supplies potassium with a muriate of potash or what's called 0-0-60. We don't handle that because it has chlorides. It's potassium chloride which is very detrimental to soil biology.

But potassium sulfate provides not only 50 units of potassium, it also has 17 units of sulfur, so when you add that up, you've actually got a lot more fertilizer for what you're paying for. It has a lot more energy than the potassium chloride and what we find is that 100 lbs. of potassium sulfate will be sufficient to provide the potassium for a whole year when the potassium's quite low.

For those concerned about their budget in regards to the cost difference between 0-0-60 vs. 0-0-50, what we suggest is to take the same amount of budget (dollars per acre) that would normally be spent with 0-0-60 and put it into the potassium sulfate 0-0-50. You'll get less product, but you'll get a better product that provides better effect for the soil.

Potassium can also be supplied with compost and manure, so it shouldn't be put on unless you know that you do need potassium.

At this point potassium prices have remained pretty high globally, and potassium sulfate is no exception. For that reason, it really is important to see if you truly need it before putting it on. A soil test would be recommended.

One of the benefits of potassium sulfate is that it's not an extremely high pH fertilizer product. Potassium chloride, on the other hand, is quite a bit higher in pH and has the tendency when used over time to push the pH high and that can be misleading for people that look at pH and then don't put any calcium or limestone down. Potassium sulfate, because of the sulfate actually, will not push the soil pH. It's more of a neutral pH, so it's quite superior just from the aspect of the pH.

Some crops are very potassium-loving, so we would use a little higher rate than 100 lbs. per acre. Some of the things that come to mind include potatoes and pumpkins. Those really use a lot more potassium, so we would go up to 200, sometimes even 400 lbs. of potassium sulfate depending on what the soil condition is what crop is being used.

A lot of soils, especially smaller market gardens, don't need it. But a lot of the larger scale agricultural operations find a need for potassium sulfate. They show up as being short.

International Ag Labs is offering through the brokerage to get potassium sulfate in bulk hopper bottoms, also in tote bags. We have a potassium sulfate that is approved for organics and we have one whose binding agent is not approved, but the product is a very clean natural product from the earth. Se we can supply 0-0-50 for organic production and for those who are biological farmers it doesn't matter. If you want a cheaper price, we can supply that as well without the organics label.

OMRI Listed Allganic Nitrogen Plus 15-0-2

For those of you who might have missed it, we have a new Chilean nitrate to offer you.

In the words of our Chilean Nitrate supplier:

"... our new OMRI Listed Allganic Nitrogen Plus 15-0-2...is a homogenous blend of 95% sodium nitrate and 5% potassium sulfate. image

The great part about this product is that it is NOT classified as oxidizer, so it does not ship/store as Hazmat, which should save you on freight and handling costs.

The physical characteristics, such as solubility, are the same as the 16-0-0 product, and it is still 100% nitrate-nitrogen from Chile, so you can expect the same high quality prills you’re accustomed to.

We have this 15-0-2 product available now...and will phase out the 16-0-0 product and are moving completely towards this new and improved 15-0-2 going forward."
