Perstop Potassium Formate (PoFO) is now registered as a fertiliser, fulfilling the requirements outlined in EC 2002/2003. With this, it’s suggested that farmers can improve both crop quality and yield without the need for local raw material registration when PoFO based products.
While potassium is an essential nutrient with a positive impact on yields, the most common solution, potassium chloride, can have a negative impact on vegetable yield and soil health. Chloride-free solutions often involve compromise, whether on cost or formulation. Perstop states that its Amicult K 42 now represents a real alternative that can improve foliar uptake rate and minimise clogging in irrigation systems.
“We are very happy to announce that the EU 2002/2003 registration of Potassium Formate is now completed. From now on we can offer Amicult K 42, our Potassium Formate based fertilizer, to customers across the whole of Europe. And they do not have to register their use locally in their country. This makes it easy to go for a choice of fertilizer that is not only cost-efficient but also has a clear advantage from a sustainability perspective,” says Martina Håkansson, business development director.
She added: “Using Potassium Formate as a fertilizer gives advantages from many perspectives. For example, improving crop health and yield through effective foliar uptake of potassium nutrients, and the potential to formulate concentrated formulations gives benefits to both users and formulators. And of course, by using an already EU registered product you will save time by not having to administrate a local registration process.”
