Potassium is an essential component of plant growth. Plants selectively
absorb water-soluble potassium ions from the soil through the roots. Potassium
is concentrated in organs and tissues with the most active plant metabolism,
such as growth points, buds, and young leaves. Here is a brief introduction to
the effect of potash on plant growth by Potassium Fertilizer Supplier.
1. Potassium Fertilizer can make trees stem strong, improve the ability to resist pests, cold, drought and lodging, promote root development, increase bulbs, and promote fruit enlargement and good color.
2. There are necrotic spots on the edge of the wood leaf. At the beginning, the old leaves appear spots, and the tip of the leaf edge begins to turn yellow, followed by dead coke necrosis. Excessive potassium fertilizer will cause shortening of the internodes, the whole plant will be dwarfed, and the color of the leaves will turn yellow.
3. Even die. The most representative organic potash fertilizer is the first to use grass ash, which can be used as top dressing and base fertilizer. It contains available potassium (K2O) 5~10% and phosphorus (P2O5) 2~3%, and also contains other trace elements. Grass ash is an alkaline fertilizer. Inorganic potassium fertilizers such as potassium chloride and potassium sulfate are acidic fertilizers and can be used as base fertilizers and top dressings.
