Made with Potash to Stimulate Plant Growth
Potash, the source of potassium in fertilizers, is considered the “universal helper” and a major contributor to plant health. It regulates many important processes within plants and must be present in large quantities because it is a component of the fluids that flood plant tissue. Potassium-deficient plants are susceptible to insect attack, have weak stalks and underdeveloped root systems.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash contains minimally processed sulfate of potash from the Great Salt Lake in Utah. Unlike other sources of potassium, sulfate of potash does not contain chloride (Cl), which can be damaging to soil life and plant roots. The potassium found in AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash helps produce high-quality vegetables and tree fruits.

Formulated with Sulfur
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash also contains 2 percent sulfur (S). Called “the fourth major nutrient,” sulfur has many important functions in plant growth and must be present in sufficient amounts in the soil and plant tissue for plants to realize the benefits of nitrogen and potassium. Sulfur helps produce higher-quality vegetables, tree fruits, small grains, legumes and forages. Higher protein and oil levels in seed, and high protein and vitamin A production in forages and legumes are also benefits of adequate sulfur fertility.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash uses kelp concentrate derived from Ascophyllum nodosum, a species of seaweed grown in the icy North Atlantic Ocean. It contains high levels of plant-growth hormones, amino acids, micronutrients and potash. When used as a fertilizer, kelp promotes robust and healthy plants by reducing their susceptibility to stress caused by heat, cold and periods of drought. Kelp can also increase plant growth rates, fruit production, size and general quality.
In addition to the many benefits provided by the kelp and sulfate of potash, AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash contains fulvic and humic acids to release nutrients from the soil, act as chelating agents, aid in foliar and root uptake and stimulate soil microbial activity. As the microbes multiply, they break down organic matter into humus and further nourish the soil as they die. These nutrients are slowly and steadily released and gradually become available to the growing plant or crop. AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash also contains natural wintergreen oil to improve scent.
AGGRAND Natural Kelp and Sulfate of Potash is recommended for, but not limited to, the following crops:
