What type of K do you like. Muriate of potash (KCl - Potassium chloride) or
Sulfate of potash (Potassium sulfate - K2S04)? One of my suppliers has both for the winterizer, but the sulfate of potash is much more expensive, he says the lower salt index will show better turf results. Potassium chloride is used for ice melt and every spring, I see ice melt damage along driveways and along streets where ice melt was used excessively.
I'd like your input-thanks.
