IMPORTANCE FOR PLANT LIFE
Potassium is one of the three major elements essential for crops.
It is involved in the stomata’s functioning and therefore contributes to reduce the plants
transpiration, thus increasing resistance to drought.
It regulates intracellular exchanges and supports the formation of carbohydrates in the leaf. It fosters
their migration to storage organs (tubers, roots and fruits).
Potassium strengthens the cell walls, provides plants with better lodging resistance and resistance
against diseases or parasites aggression.
