A high analysis potassium solution to correct deficiencies of potassium in a wide range of crops.
Potassium is a major nutrient which is required by all crops. It is second only to nitrogen in the amounts required by the crop. It is highly mobile and is quickly distributed within the plant. Potassium is generally the dominant cation and large amounts in the soil can cause deficiency symptoms of other nutrients, particularly magnesium and calcium.
The main role of potassium within the plant is as a water regulator and in this role it influences many plant processes. It is particularly important in the regulation of cell water content, cell turgidity and rates of transpiration. The translocation of photosynthesizes and a number of plant enzymes all depend on potassium.
Low levels of potassium will seriously affect the crop growth, quality and yield. Omex K50 is a unique formulation which carries a high concentration of potassium. The high potassium analysis will ensure optimum uptake of the potash in situations where it is required. Also in carbonate form, Omex K50 helps the plant create a leaf environment uninviting to leaf pathogens such as powdery mildew and botrytis.
