Potassium Nitrate

PROPERTIES OF POTASSIUM NITRATE

By | Potassium Products | No Comments

All figures quoted should be considered as a typical product analysis and may vary due to manufacturing process and raw materials. PHYSICAL PROPERTIES A granular crystal or fine crystalline white powder. Critical Relative Humidity @ 30ºC: 90.5. Solubility @ 20ºC: 47 g/100ml of water (31% concentration). Water quality is critical in determining solubility, in some areas advisors recommend  25g /100ml water (20% concentration) to ensure solubility. CHEMICAL PROPERTIES Chemical formula: KNO3. 38% Potassium (K). 13% Nitrogen (N). Salt index: 74 (relative to Sodium Nitrate at 100). Acidification index: non acidifying AGRONOMIC BENEFITS Suitable for crops that are sensitive to chloride. Technical grade product should preferentially be used for foliar feeding and drip irrigation. Compatible for blending with MAP, LAN, Urea, Ammonium Sulphate ,Potassium Chloride. Please note: Consult a qualified person (Act 36 of 1947) for specific applications / recommendations.

CMS applied along emerging suger cane rows

PROPERTIES OF CONDENSED MOLASSES SOLIDS – CMS

By | FERTILIZER PRODUCTS, Potassium Products | No Comments

CMS is an organic source of potassium produced as an end product from the distillation of alcohol from molasses. CMS has been used as a constituent in animal feeds and has proven to be an alternative and highly effective source of potassium for the sugar industry. The use of CMS is an environmentally responsible practice as one of the main disposal mechanisms for excess CMS is via a pipeline into the ocean. All figures quoted should be considered as a typical product analysis and may vary due to moisture content. PHYSICAL PROPERTIES A dark brown viscous liquid. Viscosity 3000 – 3500 cps at 25ºC (Honey: 5000 cps). SG: 1.25 – 1.31. 60% dry matter. 36% Organic Matter. CHEMICAL PROPERTIES 5% Potassium (K). 0.9% Nitrogen (N). 0.15% Phosphorus (P). 0.91% Calcium (Ca). 3.2% Magnesium (Mg). 0.6% Sulphur (S). 0.09% Zinc (Zn). 0.3% Copper (Cu). 1.5% Iron (Fe). 0.45% Manganese (Mn). 0.01% Cobalt (Co). AGRONOMIC BENEFITS Increases the K levels of the soil. Increases the Mg levels of the soil. Reduces the soil acid saturation percentage. Increases the pH of the soil. Returns organic matter to the soil. Promotes biological activity of the soil. Contains traces of Humic and Fulvic acids. Accurate and concentrated application down the plant rows. Compatible for blending with Mono Ammonium Phosphate, Phosphoric Acid, Ammonium Nitrate, Urea, Ammonium Sulphate and Potassium Chloride. Please note: Consult a qualified person (Act 36 of 1947) for specific applications / recommendations.

NUTRI – FLO PRECISION FERTILIZER SERVICES

By | BUSINESS DIRECTORY, FERTILZER SUPPLIERS, Potassium Products | No Comments

Nutri – Flo was founded in 1988 when its founding members recognized the opportunity to provide a comprehensive fertilizer service to sugar growers on the North Coast of KZN. Initially Nutri – Flo supplied liquid fertilizers in the form of slurry suspensions and an application service. Over the past 30 through innovation and the development of new technologies Nutri – Flo have evolved as a significant force offering competitive fertilizer solutions throughout the Southern African sugar belt. In the 1990’s Nutri – Flo recognized the potential opportunities offered in using Condensed Molasses Solids (CMS) which is produced as a result of the distillation of molasses. These innovations have enhanced yield and profitability of growers, reduced the sugar industries reliance on imported potassium chloride and had a positive environmental impact through the return of organic matter to the soil and by providing and alternative disposal option of excessive CMS from the distilleries. . Nutri – Flo prides itself in its precision application services, continuous field trials and research and development of CMS application technology throughout KZN, Mpumalanga Lowveld, Swaziland and other African countries which will ultimately reduce the continents dependence on imported fertilizers. www.nutriflo.co.za
