Looks like (relatively) pure potassium nitrate to me.

The 13.5-0-46.2 indicates the NPK content of the KNO3, I believe.

As mentioned above, the recipe shown there is also the PMDD mix from the original Sears and Colin's paper (from many years ago). It is outdated, and should not be used (I don't know why it is still on their label...)
