Fertilizers are used to maintain soil fertility and enhance crop yield. In addition to phosphorus and nitrogen, potassium is an important element responsible for plant growth. Lack of potassium lowers resistance of plants against several diseases and draught, bringing down the overall quality of the crops. These factors have led to an increase in the demand for potash fertilizers globally. Furthermore, there are three major grades of potash fertilizers available, which includes potassium chloride, potassium sulfate, and potassium nitrate among others.
Key factors increasing the demand for potash fertilizers include rising demand for increased crop productivity on limited landscape and the growing acceptance of potash fertilizers, owing to its high nutrient content. Potash fertilizers help to improve the flavor and color of fruits, and also has the ability to increase their size. Low chloride content in potassium chloride fertilizers helps in improving the yield by providing disease resistance to crops. Furthermore, the potassium sulfate fertilizers provide both sulfur and potassium in soluble form, and is the most preferred grade of potash fertilizers, where the irrigation water have high chloride content. Wide availability of various grades of potash fertilizers is another major factor that is boosting growth of the market.
