- Water soluble fertiliser
- High phosphorus and potassium with no nitrogen content
- Pack size 25kg
YaraTera KRISTA MKP (0-52-34) is a clean, fully water-soluble phosphorus and potassium fertiliser making it particularly suited to a wide range of horticultural crops.
Soluble grade mono Potassium Phosphate
YaraTera KRISTA MKP is a free-flowing, fine crystalline powder that dissolves quickly in water without any residues. It is suited to application through all fertigation systems – hydroponics, drip systems, low throw sprinklers, centre pivots and spray units.
Cation balance - high potassium levels in the plant or soil will reduce the availability of magnesium, reducing crop yields and quality. Other cations such as ammonium, calcium, hydrogen (low pH) and aluminium can also reduce the availability of magnesium.
YaraTera KRISTA MKP contains no nitrogen, making it an ideal source of phosphorus and potassium for late applications to fruiting plants when nitrogen applications need to be controlled. Krista MKP is also an ideal source to use in conjunction with nitrogen fertilisers such as calcium nitrate (in separate stock tanks), or potassium nitrate, ammonium nitrate or Urea.
Foliar applications of YaraTera KRISTA MKP may help suppress leaf diseases such as powdery mildew, when infection pressure is low.
YaraTera KRISTA MKP is ideally suited for applications in hydroponics as it is free of ammonium.
YaraTera KRISTA MKP can be mixed with all water-soluble fertilisers, except soluble calcium fertilisers and concentrated magnesium fertilisers.
The phosphorus component in YaraTera KRISTA MKP buffers fertigation solutions, keeping the pH stable at around 4.5. YaraTera KRISTA MKP also buffers chemical solutions, increasing the effectiveness of pesticide sprays.
YaraTera KRISTA MKP in solution has a low EC at 0.7 mS/cm. This means it is a relatively safe fertiliser to use for foliar application as the risk of burning or scorching foliage is minimal.
YaraTera KRISTA MKP is free of chlorine, sodium and heavy metals.
