Potassium Nitrate for Stronger and Healthier Plants

Potassium nitrate is virtually free of chloride. When the chloride concentration in the soil solution increases, plants take up chloride on the account of essential anionic nutrients, especially nitrate. This, of course, hinders plant growth. When chloride quantities go higher, toxic effects are caused, that may lead to loss of yields and may even cause plant death. Potassium nitrate is virtually free of detrimental chloride, and the nitrate in potassium nitrate counteracts the chloride's harmful effect. Potassium nitrate is non-toxic to roots. Unlike ammonium, the nitrate-nitrogen in potassium nitrate does not destroy plant roots at elevated soil
