When used with nitrogen and phosphate, potash increases the yields of crops. Approximately 95% of world potash production is used as fertilizer.
Manitoba’s potash use is approximately 50,000 tonne per year and Canada’s potash consumption is approximately 350,000 – 500,000 tonne per year.
over 15 million tonne
