The 6 main benefits of Potassium Nitrate


Sustainably boosting profitable crop yields, efficiently combating environmental stresses.


Potassium nitrate (KNO3): Efficient plant nutrition

Stronger and healthier crop
Apply KNO3 to improve crop development and to increase tolerance to adverse abiotic or biotic stress

Potassium nitrate (KNO3): Increases crop yield
KNO3 increases the profitability of the farmer’s investment in optimal plant nutrition
Deliver high quality products while increasing profitability and harvest security

Potassium nitrate (KNO3): Prevents soil salinization
K+ and NO3- are fully absorbed by the plant, following crop demand
Prevent excessive supply of K2SO4 or KCl as the main K-source to avoid sulphate and chloride accumulation in the soil and to prevent soil salinity

Potassium nitrate (KNO3): stands for Quality
KNO3 increases the quality of the harvested produce
Increase profitability by delivering higher priced quality class produce

Potassium nitrate (KNO3): Saves water
Improved water use efficiency
Decrease water requirement of the crop through better water management

Potassium nitrate (KNO3): Sustainable production processes
