With increasing world population and improving quality of life, the demand for more food and better
diets will continue to grow. This will put a strain on available farmland and food production resources.
Potash is an essential crop fertilizer and is the mineral which feeds the world. Potash is referred to as
the “quality nutrient” because it has the biggest impact on taste, color, texture and nutritional value of
grown food. Potash will help farmers to increase their crop yields and ensure that they can continue to
satisfy the world’s ever increasing demand for food.
Potash is mined from underground salt deposits left behind from sea beds which have evaporated
millions of years ago. Potash veins are located 1,000m (i.e. 1 km) underground. Whether you are floating
or solution mining potash, Quadra Chemicals has partnered with world class suppliers to bring new and
innovative products and solutions to this highly specialized market.
