Granular Potassium Sulphate

Back to Fertilizers

Potassium is one of the most important elements in growing giant pumpkins. Much of the Potassium in soil is found in insoluble compounds that are not easily available to plants. Potassium Sulphate is readily available. Potassium determines fruit size, leaf thickness and stem strength.

Potassium is an indispensable constituent for the correct development of plants. It is important in photosynthesis, in the regulation of plants responses to light through opening and closing of stomata. Potassium is also important in the biochemical reactions in plants. Basically, Potassium (K) is responsible for many other vital processes such as water and nutrient transportation, protein, and starch synthesis.

Potassium (K) is sometimes called the “Quality Nutrient”, as it is essential in the production of high-quality fruits and vegetables. Potassium plays a vital role in the trans-location of essential nutrients, water, and other substances from the roots through the stem to the leaves.

Sulphur is often referred to as “the 4th major plant nutrient”. Sulphur is necessary in the formation of chlorophyll. Sulphur is essential in the formation of proteins, amino acids, enzymes and vitamins. Sulphur also helps with resistance to disease, aiding in growth and in seed formation. Work into the soil at i-pound per 100 square feet.
