got stump remover; help with dosing;, some chemistry required

I recently purchased Grow More brand stump remover.

At the back it says it is composed of :

13% Nitrate Nitrogen (N)
44% Soluble Potash (K2O)

I was wondering what kind of dosing I should do. I know this requires a bit of calculation requiring some knowledge of chemistry.

Thanks in advance!

When Greg Watson sells KNO3 for cheap.

As long as that stump remover is 100% KNO4 then just follow the dosing rules for KNO3.

Budget constraints. $10+ for shipping doesn't seam feasible at this point.

Called up the company and they said this is pure KNO3. So for future reference, you can use chuck's calculator or the fertilator to dose.

Buying from Greg is economical if you buy more than one or two things. If you buy from Greg make sure you buy a fair amount of K2SO4 because you'll burn throught it significantly faster than anything else. Unfortunately K2SO4 is the one thing I can't find locally, so I'll be buying from Greg again real soon.
