Kieserite

Kieserite is a naturally occurring mineral that is chemically known as Magnesium Sulfate Monohydrate. It is mined from geologic marine deposits and provides a soluble source of both Magnesium (Mg – 16%) and Sulphur (S – 16%) for plant nutrition. It comes in creamy brown/white uneven sized granules ranging in size between 2.5 – 4.0mm.

Kieserite:

  • ​Is typically used in cropping, horticulture, market gardening, and for maize production.
  • Is an effective Magnesium and Sulphur source for all crops and in all types of soil regardless of soil pH.
  • Contains Magnesium and Sulphur in water soluble forms which are readily available to the plant.

Selenium

Selenium is a trace element which is essential for animals but not for plants. In animals, Se is
important for the immune system and also for the thyroid gland.

Application rates:
350-500g/ha.

Sulphate of Potash (Potassium Sulphate)

Benefits of Sulphate of Potash:

  • Provides potassium to crops sensitive to chloride and salt.
  • Contains a low salt index helping to avoid the plant taking up excess water.
  • Encourages flowering and fruiting on plants and vegetables.
  • Mixes well with all other fertilisers.

Application rates and advice:
Actual spreading rates will vary according to farm type, climate, productivity and soil type.
Home gardens: Apply 50-100 grams per square metre and water in.

As with most solid fertilisers, Sulphate of Potash can be stored over a season as long as it is kept in a cool, dry, well ventilated area.
