- Fully water-soluble, crystalline product
- Low in chloride, sodium and other detrimental elements.
- When high levels of phosphorus and potassium are required without nitrogen: e.g. at the productive stages for sugar rich fruit crops, to increase sugar content and improve quality
- Used for foliar feeding, fertigation and as an ingredient in NPK’s.
- Compatible with most water-soluble fertilizers

Function of Phosphorus
Phosphorus plays a major role in photosynthesis and respiration. As an ATP (adenosine triphosphate), phosphorus stores and transports energy within the cells of the plant and contributes to a better metabolism. Phosphorus is also present in RNA and DNA structures, major components of genetic information. In mature plants, seeds have the highest concentration of phosphorus. Shoots and root rips have a high metabolism and a rapid cell division and require phosphorus in large quantities. Phosphorus supports root development, flower initiation and seed and fruit development. In some plants, it can reduce disease. Phosphorus can also improve the quality of certain crops.
Deficiency of Phosphorus
Phosphorus deficiency symptoms are often hard to detect because they are not usually very distinct. Relative smallness and reduced growth compared to healthy plants are the best indicators. As a rule, plants suffering from phosphorus deficiency develop more slowly and are often mistaken for much younger plants because of their size. Other visible indicators of phosphorus deficiency can be a purple stem, petiole and leaves. These indicators are limited to corn, tomato, lettuce and all varieties of brassica. Brown veined leaves and a grey luster can be found on plants with severe Phosphorus deficiency.
