KALISOP – POTASSIUM SULPHATE granulated (50% K2O, 45% SO3)

KALISOP – POTASSIUM SULPHATE FINE powder (50% K2O, 45% SO3)

KALISOP is highly concentrated two-component fertilizer containing 50%  of K2O and 45% of SO3. It is a water soluble fertilizer, which provides plant with direct access to nutrients. It contains traces of chlorine, so it is ideal for use in cultures sensitive to chlorine. Due to the high sulfur content KALISOP is especially suitable for plants with high requirements to sulfur, such as rapeseed, sunflower, brassicas, onion, leek. Sulfur also increases  efficiency of nitrogen fertilizers and thus have a positive influence on the yield and quality of products. KALISOP improves the coloration of fruit and vegetables, increases the sugar content and acidity, gives stronger flavor to the fruits, making final product more attractive to consumers. KALISOP has a positive impact on strengthening the plant tissue, which enables better storage of yields. KALISOP is a product of natural salt deposits in Europe which were formed by evaporation of sea water millions of years ago. Due to the natural origin of this fertilizer and its minimal processing, KALISOP is authorized for use in organic production.

Application: KALISOP is recommended to use in spring, before sowing / planting, but can also be used for fertilization of crops during the growing season. The optimum amount of fertilizer is determined on the basis of potassium content in the soil, plants’ need for potassium and expected yield. The recommendations given in the table below are the guidelines for the application of KALISOP fertilizers in the soil with average potassium content and medium to high expected quantity of yields.

EPSO TOP – MAGNESIUM SULPHATE ( 16% MgO, 32% SO3 )

EPSO Top is 100% water soluble fertilizer suitable for foliar application and application through drip systems. EPSO Top can also be applied on the soil in the case of lack of Mg content in the soil or growing phase when plant’s need for Mg is highest. Magnesium is one of the key elements that affect the yield and quality. This element is located in the chlorophyll (green pigment that gives the color of the plant), and thus has an important role in photosynthesis. Lack of Mg can occur in the phase of intensive growth of the plant. This deficiency can be easily and successfully overcame by foliar application of EPSO TOP. This fertilizer contains magnesium in the form of sulphate. Sulfur is a nutrient element that positively affects the ability of plant to adopt accessible nitrogen and thus has an important role in achieving high and quality yield. EPSO Top is a product of natural salt deposits in Europe which were formed by evaporation of sea water millions of years ago. Due to the natural origin of this fertilizer and its minimal processing, EPSO TOP authorized for use in organic production.
