|Product type:||Potassium sulphate fertilisers|
Tessenderlo Group's fast dissolving foliar grade sulphate of potash (SOP) provides one of mildest forms of the important plant nutrient potassium. Compared to other sources of potassium, K-Leaf® offers a number of important benefits for broad-acre crops, as well as for fruit and vegetables.
K-Leaf® enables farmers to grow high quality produce with maximum export value, as well as to safeguard the environment.
K-Leaf® has been specifically developed by Tessenderlo Group for foliar application:
A fast dissolving, completely soluble SOP
K-Leaf® is a very fine white powder which dissolves much more rapidly than other SOP fertilizers and leaves no residue. At 20°C (68°F), K-Leaf® only takes a few minutes to dissolve at a concentration.
This video illustrates the benefits of K-Leaf™ better than words can describe. 50 g of respectively SoluPotasse®, K-Leaf® and NOP were added to 1 liter of water. Dissolution took place without any form of agitation.
Potassium and sulphur in a readily available form
K-Leaf® contains a minimum of 52% K2O (43% K) and 18% sulphur. In soils where intensive cropping combined with limited sulphur replacement has created an increasing sulphur deficiency, K-Leaf® ensures optimum uptake of both potassium and sulphur (as sulphate).
Nitrogen-free source of potassium
Evidence suggests that an excessive nitrate supply, especially when fruit are forming, can have a detrimental effect on product quality.
Virtually no chloride
Chloride is a direct threat to a variety of cash crops with poor chloride tolerance. An excess can be detrimental to the quality of many crops.
Lower pH solution
By lowering the pH, K-Leaf® minimizes the risk of clogging sprayers.
