Potassium is essential for optimal yield, quality and flavour.
Campbells NitroCal K cannot be lost to the atmosphere like Urea or Ammonium based fertilisers and:
- Is not affected by temperature, so nutrients are still available when conditions are cold and wet
- Does not contain harmful chlorides or heavy metals
- Is not acidifying to the soil
