Sulphate of Potash for Quality... scan

Potassium fertilizer is commonly added to improve the yield and quality of plants growing in soils that are lacking an adequate supply of this essential nutrient. Most fertilizer K comes from ancient salt deposits located throughout the world.

The word “potash” is a general term that most frequently refers to potassium chloride (KCl), but it also applies to all other K-containing fertilizers, such as potassium sulfate (K2SO4), commonly referred to as sulfate of potash (or SOP).

I came across a nice pamphlet describing some of the advantages of using potassium sulfate as a source of potassium fertilizer.  It was written several years ago by the Potash Export Company in Vienna (Kali Export Gesellschaft).

Here is a link to the pdf of the booklet:
