An important part of Uralkali’s activities in Russia is to support balanced nutrition of crops, in which potash fertilisers play an essential role. For many years, the Company has been conducting special experiments and trials to determine optimal potash application rates for various crops in different regions of Russia as joint projects with the Pryanishnikov Institute of Agrochemistry, the International Plant Nutrition Institute (IPNI), and a number of industry-specific research institutes and agricultural producers. Below is the list of these joint projects:

Lipetsk, Voronezh, Rostov and Belgorod Regions:
“Advanced recommendations for potash application”

Belgorod Region:
“Evaluation of potash efficiency for sugar beet, sunflower and grain maize plantations in the Central Black Earth Region of Russia”

Voronezh Region:
“Evaluation of potash efficiency for sugar beet plantations in the climate conditions of Voronezh Region”

Rostov, Volgograd, Altai, Primorsky and Moscow Regions:
“Evaluation of granular potash efficiency for vegetable and cucurbit plantations in different soil and climate zones of Russia”

Rostov Region:
“Evaluation of potash efficiency for winter wheat and sunflower plantations”

Tambov Region:
“Evaluation of potash efficiency for apple-tree plantations in the Central Black Earth Region of Russia”

Republic of Mordovia:
“Development of an improved system for spring wheat, barley and rapeseed plantations”

Republic of Chuvashia:
“Advanced recommendations for potash application for barley plantations”

Kirov Region:
“Recommendations for potash application for barley plantations”

Krasnodar Region:
“Evaluation of water-soluble white MOP efficiency for dense apple-tree plantations”

Astrakhan Region:
“Evaluation of efficiency of chlorine-containing potash fertilisers applied by means of fertigation and foliage dressing for vegetable and cucurbit plantations”

The ompany has prepared and published the book titled "Potassium a key element of plant nutrition" (available in Russian), which summarizes the accumulated experience of industry experts as well as Uralkali's own experience.
