Potash/Potassium Salts Potash is a mined material and is the basic building block for all potassium salts and potassium hydroxide.

Market Dynamics:

Potassium is one of the three key nutrients in fertilizer, with nitrogen and phosphorous being the other two. About 80% of all the potash mined goes into the fertilizer. Further, China and Brazil consume about  30% of all the potassium based fertilizers globally, thus fluctuations in their economy can greatly impact the availability of material for the chemical market.
