Vital Hi-K® is a water-soluble NPK formula designed to be used when potassium is required as a key element; this formulation is balanced with other nutrients to improve quality, maturity, yield and full growth of any harvestable crop. Potassium is responsible for the activation of more than 80 enzymes that regulate plant growth and harvest quality making Vital Hi-K® highly effective on produce quality, increasing shelf life and brix value in vegetables and fruits. It impacts sugar, oil and fiber content in fruits and grains also improves packout in produce with better size, shape, color, taste and shelf life.
Vital Hi-K®has been added with RBT® Root Bioenhancer Technology–which is the combination of organic acids in precise balance with inorganic nutrients that boost root biomass development and increase nutrient uptake by an improved interaction between soil and root system. A healthier and well-developed root system will allow to absorb a higher amount of nutrients hence the plant will express its full genetic potential in terms of enhanced growth, higher yields and improved quality on grains or produce.

How much to apply of Vital Hi-K® solution:
Vital Hi-K® can be applied by sidedress, topdress, or through fertigation. In accordance with concentration of solution (see Chart 1) and soil texture/organic matter content (see Chart 2), apply 5 to 28 gal of Vital Hi-K® per acre.
