A rich harvest in vegetable or allotment gardens requires regular fertilization, as plants need macronutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium for their growth process. Potassium improves the quality of the crop and facilitates the absorption of water and other nutrients. To prevent nutrient deficiencies and weak harvests, organic fertilizers, which combat soil pollution, are the most effective. Potassium nitrate (KNO3) is a prominent organic fertilizer that contains both potassium and nitrate. For optimal results, approximately 100 grams of potassium nitrate should be spread evenly per square meter of garden. The product is available from DutchChems in its purest form.
Potassium nitrate is a versatile product with various applications, including fertilizers and personal care products. As an effective oxidizer, it can also accelerate the combustion of combustible materials and is therefore considered mildly hazardous. DutchChems sells potassium nitrate in limited quantities, ranging from 1 kg to 5 kg per order, and the packaging carries an ADR LQ label. Buying potassium nitrate is legal, but the buyer's intentions are recorded. DutchChems, based in the Netherlands, ships to all EU countries and works with DPD to ensure low shipping costs.
