What is Potash?

Potash bearing rock deposits occur in many regions of the world. They are derived from the minerals in ancient seas that dried up millions of years ago. Fertilizer potash is mostly derived from these potash rocks. It requires only separation from the salt and other minerals. There are no known substitutes for potash.

In addition, another fertilizer-intensive crop, sugar cane, is at a record high.
