Greenlight's "Stump Away", available at Heckingers,
Home Depot, etc is a good source of KNO3 (Potassium
Nitrate). I called the Greenlight awhile ago and
they told me the onlything in "Stump Away" is
agricultural grade KNO3. I've used it for years
now with no adverse effects. You can get a pint
sized jar for around 4 bucks.

Some mail order sources:

ECO Enterprises  1-800-426-6937
     1240 NE 175th Street, Seattle WA
           KNO3   $5.98/ 5 lbs   Agro grade

PCI Scientific Supply  1-800-432-4136
          KNO3   $16.75/500mG  Lab grade

Hope this helps,
