Market Definition:

Potash fertilizer is a natural substance which is continuously recycled in the earth. Potassium is essential for plant health and it should be adequately supplied to the soil to maintain its fertility. Fertilizers containing potassium are used wherever soil potassium reserves are inadequate for the targeted crop or pasture production. It stimulates the growth of strong stems and renders the plant free of disease by promoting thickness of the outer cell walls. Moreover, potassium improves color, flavor and shelf life of fruit and vegetables. The most commonly used potash fertilizers include muriate of potash, potassium magnesium sulfate, sulfate of potash, potassium nitrate, and others.

Market Scenario:       

Potash in soil is the initial source of uptake in plants. In many parts of the world, potash in the agricultural soils are gradually depleting, which is driving the use growth of potash fertilizers market. The continuous rising population is driving the demand for high agricultural productivity, further driving the growth of the global potash fertilizers market. Increasing awareness among the farmers is further adding fuel to the growth of the market.
