Potash is the common term for fertiliser forms of the element potassium.

He will begin his role on 5th November 2012 and will be based at the company's offices in Scarborough, North Yorkshire.

Prior to joining Sirius, Jarvis was Managing Director at crop nutrient firm Agrium for UK and Ireland for almost five years.
