Sulfate of Potash (Fully Water Soluble)




What is it?

Sulfate of Potash (SOP) fertilizer is made up of two primary components: potassium (K) and sulfur (S). Potassium is an essential macronutrient for plants, while sulfur plays a vital role in various plant functions. Together, they form the compound known as potassium sulfate.


How to use?
