Apr 6, 2016Compass Minerals launches Protassium+ Organic
Protassium+ Organic is a dual-nutrient, concentrated sulfate of potash (SOP) offering high potassium (50 percent potassium) and plant-available sulfate sulfur, the company said. It is the only domestically produced and packaged SOP certified and approved for organic food production by the Organic Materials Review Institute, California Department of Food and Agriculture and USDA National Organic Standards Board, according to the company.
Compared with other organic fertilizer options, like manure, Protassium+ Organic allows growers to reduce the amount of applied fertilizer, Compass Minerals said. It requires three tons of manure to apply the same amount of potassium in only 0.18 ton of Protassium+ Organic, according to the company.
SOP (K2SO4) offers both conventional and organic growers numerous performance advantages not found in any other potassium source produced in North America, Compass Minerals said. Containing 50 percent potassium, SOP fertilizer – such as Protassium+, helps supports plant resistance to drought, frost, disease, and pests, among other growing stressors, the company said.
