I honestly don't think it is a good idea to put soil into a rocket.
Whereas, potassium nitrate you can get from just about anywhere.

I'm sure if you typed "potassium nitrate suppliers" into Google you'll get about 170,000 hits.

I doubt you have the resources to extract potassium nitrate from soil. Why would you when you can buy it!

Ah yes, that could work, although you probably won't get a high yeild at all, not very pure either. I still think you should buy it.
Rather like this one, except it uses ammonium nitrate

I think that means that you need to mix potassium carbonate from charcoal with soil that has a high nitrogen content.

You can get soil with a high nitrogen content by peeing in dirt. In fact, i think that's how they used to get KNO3  to make black powder a long time ago.
You can read about it here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_nitrate#History_of_production [nofollow]

As others have suggested, though, you should just buy some potassium nitrate. It is cheap and plentiful. You can order it on the internet or, in some cases, you can buy it from places that sell meat - KNO3 is often used as a meat preservative.

Stores that sell meat have potassium nitrate.  The stores have potassium nitrate. They use the potassium nitrate to preserve the meat.

What country do you live in? It is easy to buy KNO3 if you live in the United States, but i don't know about other countries.

Back to the soil.
Besides peeing the soil, are there another way to get the soil with high nitro?
I think, it is a very simple steps.

Peeing only works if you also have the bacteria.
