Healthy plant growth requires large amounts of nitrogen and potassium, so these elements must be supplied regularly.  
Multi-K™, Haifa’s flagship potassium nitrate brand, is the basis of a whole line of plain and enriched products, designed to provide optimal plant nutrition under all growth conditions.



The benefits of Multi-K™ potassium nitrate

Stronger & healthier plants

♦ Higher yield and better quality

♦ Water saving

♦ Counteracting salinity damages

Multi-K™ is a necessity for chloride-sensitive crops.

The presence of nitrate in Multi-K™ enables the plant to minimize its uptake of chloride, whenever this damaging anion is present in the soil solution or in the irrigation water.

The roles of Potassium (K) in the plant:
Potassium (K) is a macro-nutrient, one of elements that the plant consumes in large quantities. It has many vital functions, among which: 

  • Formation of sugars and starch
  • Activation of enzymatic reaction
  • Keeping turgor
  • Regulation of the opening of leaf stomata
  • Building cell walls


Thus, potassium improves plant durability and yield quality:

  • Improved drought resistance
  • Increased winter hardiness
  • Better disease resistance
  • Higher yield and better quality
  • Longer storage life
