It is interesting to know that more than 90% of global potash production is used for plant nutrition. Farmers usually use KCL crops on the soil surface in rows before planting.

Application of potassium chloride fertilizer in agriculture

Potassium chloride dissolves well in water and by irrigating agricultural lands, potash fertilizers are converted into soluble compounds in the soil, which increases their solubility with increasing temperature. One of the advantages of using potassium chloride fertilizers in agricultural lands is increasing plant access to other useful compounds such as nitrates, phosphates, calcium, and essential amino acids.
By adding potassium chloride to the soil and absorbing potassium ions, the activity of biological molecules such as enzymes, chemical catalysts, starches, and sugars in plant cell processes is regulated and this will contribute to the optimal growth and development of the plant. Another positive effect of potash fertilizers is the effect on plant photosynthesis and absorption of sunlight, which will make plants greener. KCL is also used as a raw material for the production of potassium sulfate fertilizer for economic reasons.

It is interesting to know that although about 92% of the world’s potassium fertilizers are potassium chloride, the presence of chlorine ions in some crops such as potatoes, especially when the consumption of potatoes is not fresh, is not desirable because of the presence of excess chlorine. Interrupts the transfer of starch in the plant and reduces the yield of potatoes.Potassium chloride fertilizer is produced and marketed in three grades: standard, coarse and granular. Grains with a size of 0.2 to 0.8 mm in the standard grade, with a size of 0.8 to 2 mm large grade, and with a size of 1.2 to 3.5 mm are classified as grain grade.

External sources of chloroptase suppliers

1- Ural Kali Company is the top Russian potash company and also one of the leading potash producers in the world.
2. Uzbek Potash Company (Uzkimyoimpeks) Uzbekistan Potash Factory Dehghanabad currently exports potash mainly to neighboring countries in Central Asia.
3. Belaruskali is the largest industry operator in Belarus. Since the departure of Oralkali (MCX: URKA) from Belarus in 2013, its former partner, the state-owned Belaruskali, has come a long way.
4. The Arab Potash Company in Jordan is the only producer of potash in the Arab region. This has helped Jordan become a major supplier of potash to India and Asia.

Available sources of chloro-potash in Iran

⦿ Khor Potash Complex is the first potash producer in Iran and has the largest potash reserves in the Middle East. This complex is located in the central desert of Iran, 450 km east of the center of Isfahan province and 30 km from Khorobiabank city, with the aim of producing 50,000 tons of potassium chloride as chemical fertilizer and 300,000 tons of sodium chloride for petrochemical use. Oral and medicinal. also, 30,000 tons of magnesium hydroxide have been exploited.
⦿ Potash factory in Toroud area of Shahroud Supplementary exploration of potash in this area has been completed and a certificate for the discovery of potash mineral reserves has been issued.
⦿ As one of the largest importers of potassium chloride from Russia and Uzbekistan, Sanat Potas Asia Company announces its readiness to supply imported potassium chloride to other companies.
