Perstorp potassium formate (PoFO) is now registered as a fertiliser, fulfilling the requirements outlined in EC 2002/2003. With this, Perstorp can now be used to improve crop quality and yield without the need for local raw material registration.
Potassium is an essential nutrient that has a positive impact on yields. Potassium chloride has been the most common solution, however, these can have a negative impact on vegetable yields and soil health. Chloride-free solutions often involve compromise, either on cost or formulation. Perstorp Amicult K 42 is said to increase yield, increasing foliar uptake and minimising 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 fertiliser, 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 fertiliser that is not only cost-efficient but also has a clear advantage from a sustainability perspective,” said Martina Håkansson, business development director.
She added: “Using potassium formate as a fertiliser 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.”
