Well, I see that monovalent potassium is among the amino acid
chelated mineral products at Albion Laboratories.  The Metasolates
line of foliar fertilization products are certified organic.


Albion Laboratories

A related site that comes to mind when amino acids and foliar
fertilizers come up in organic fertilization is Delbon in France,
supplying liquid fertilizer products like Protaminal geared to foliar
fertilization and fertigation.

        The technical glossary, fertilization files, crop files, and amino
