Information @ a Glance


  • Potassium sulfate (K2SO4) (in British English potassium sulphate, also called sulphate of potash or archaically known as potash of sulfur) is a flammable white crystalline salt which is soluble in water.
  • The mineral form of potassium sulfate, namely arcanite, is relatively rare.
  • Natural resources of potassium sulfate are minerals abundant in the Stassfurt salt.
  • These are cocrystalisations of potassium sulfate and sulfates of magnesium calcium and sodium.
  • Potassium sulfate can be synthesized by the decomposition of potassium chloride with sodium sulfate.
  • The Hargreaves method is basically the same process with different starting materials.
  • Sulfur dioxide, oxygen and water (the starting materials for sulfuric acid) are reacted with potassium chloride.
  • Hydrochloric acid evaporates off.
  • Potassium fertilization in Egyptian agriculture have become very important since the completion of the High Dam because of the deposition of the suspended Nile silt-rich in K bearing minerals in the upstream of the formed lake.
  • World annual production: 1.6 Mt, eq. 0.3 Mt S; Half is mined directly; and half is produced by reaction of KCl with sulphuric acid.
  • The principal use of potassium sulfate is as a fertilizer.
  • The crude salt is also used occasionally in the manufacture of glass.
  • Sulfate of Potash or potassium sulfate (K2SO4) has a lower salt index than Muriate of Potash,
  • Potassium sulfate is often preferred to the latter in crops sensitive to chloride or susceptible to fertiliser burn, eg. to the crop roots.
  • It is often used in planting mixtures for French bean, and in shallow-rooted tree crops such as avocado and macadamia.
  • Heavy applications of potassium fertilizers can be directly related to high potassium levels in grape juice which can have a detrimental effect on red wine quality via high juice pH, and reduce color and flavour.
  • The potash market is unique in the sense that only 12 countries produce the mineral and 150 countries consume it. Canada, Russia, Belarus, and the Middle East account for the majority of production, while Asia and Latin America are the largest consumers
  • Over the past 40 years, the compounded annual growth rate of potash consumption stood at 2%.
  • The demand is expected to be of the order of 3% over the next five years on projections of rising demand mainly arising from China, India, and Brazil
  • Developing countries like China, India and Brazil have been
    under-applying potash for years, depleting the potassium content
    in their soils and reflecting in poor crop yields. These countries
    are expected to lead market growth
