The trip was 1600 kilometers = 994 Miles (Total), And i bought a 25 Kilogram which is 55 lb, The price is 145 Saudi riyals = 38 U.S. dollars.

15 Hours of driving from Kuwait to Saudi Arabia (Al Riyadh) and the way back.


Now, its time to use EI Method to feed my poor stunted plants

Regards,
Wow! it reminds me of Saudi Arabia capital city, Riyadh.
I was an expat and worked there for 2-1/2 years. I can imagine how you drive that long desert trip on both side of the highways.

Does Dammam, Hail or nearby city of KSA border carry fertilizers that you have to drive all the way down Riyadh?
That's pretty far.

Sorry for the late replay,

I went to dammam first trying to find the KH2PO4, but didn't get any luck at all, and i asked the local people in dammam about any agriculture companies in dammam, they told me i have to drive to riyadh, to a street called "Hai Al Salaam street", there where all the agriculture companies are.

Well it was a very long trip 16 hours of driving in the summer (Thanks God) we have all air conditioned cars.

But i might do another trip to Qatar to buy an ADA tank + Aquasoil soon :P
