Potassium chloride KCL

Potassium Chloride (commonly referred to as Muriate of Potash or MOP) is the most common potassium source used in agriculture, accounting for about 95% of all potash fertilizers used worldwide. Greenway Biotech, Inc’s Potassium Chloride fertilizer contains 62% Potassium.

Product Description

Potassium chloride, the chemical formula of KCl, is a colorless and elongated diamond, or a cubic crystal, or a small white crystal granule powder that looks like salt, odorless and salty.An additive commonly used in low-sodium salt and mineral water.

Potassium chloride (KCl) is a metal halide salt composed of potassium and chlorine. It is odorless and has a white or colorless vitreous crystal appearance. The solid dissolves readily in water and its solutions have a salt-like taste.It occurs naturally as the mineral sylvite, and in combination with sodium chloride as sylvinite.

The taste is very salty, the smell is not toxic.Density.Melting point is 776 ºC.When heated to 1420 ºC can boil.Soluble in water, ether, glycerin and alkali, soluble in ethanol, but not soluble in water-free ethanol.The solubility of water in water increases rapidly with temperature.

Benifit of potassium chloride KCL

Potassium helps regulate plant metabolism and affects water pressure regulation inside and outside of plant cells. It is important for good root development. For these reasons, potassium is critical to plant stress tolerance. The chloride content of Potassium Chloride can also be beneficial where soil chloride is low. Recent research has shown that chloride improves yield by increasing disease resistance in crops. In circumstances where soil or irrigation water chloride levels are very high, the addition of extra chloride with Potassium Chloride can cause toxicity. However, this is unlikely to be a problem, except in very dry environments, since chloride is readily removed from the soil by leaching.

Increase plant vigor and disease resistance!

Potassium Chloride is an excellent source of potassium which aids healthy plant growth disease resistance. Increase plant vigor and helps stiffen steams and aids in fruit formation. Muriate of Potash is great for your root and tuber crops like carrots, beets, and potatoes as it promotes healthy root growth.

Application

Potassium Chloride is often used in medicine, scientific applications, food processing, as a sodium-free substitute for table salt (sodium chloride), and in judicial execution through lethal injection. Potassium Chloride is also used in water as a completion fluid in oil and gas operations.
