Phosphorus fertilizer

Fertilizations

Fertilizers are cultivation practices used, often and willingly, by growers and producers in agriculture and gardening. The fertilizers that are administered to the soil or plants have the function of improving the chemical – physical properties of the soil by enriching it with all those elements that plants need to develop at their best. Not all plants, however, require fertilization, in fact, those of spontaneous origin, absorb the nutrients of which the soil prepares. It should also be known that each soil contains specific elements based on its consistency and composition. To be aware of the substances contained within the soil, it is sufficient to carry out analyzes. From the result we could also choose the fertilizer to be used for that type of soil.

Manure and elements

The elements contained within the fertilizers allow plants to receive the nutrients they need to continue their life path in the best possible way. The elements of greatest importance for carrying out metabolic functions are the «macro elements», namely Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. In addition to these substances there are also others that take the name of «micro elements», they are iron, copper, zinc, calcium, manganese, boron etc. It could be said that fertilizing in the presence of micro elements but in the absence of macro elements is almost completely useless. Among the many types of fertilizers, today, we are dedicated to phosphorus-based fertilizers. Phosphorus is one of the three macro elements and is important for plants because it improves fruit quality and stimulates flowering.

Phosphorus fertilizer: Phosphate fertilizers

Those of a chemical nature are those fertilizers that are obtained from chemical reactions and undergo industrial treatments. Some examples of chemical fertilizers are simple superphosphate, concentrated superphosphate and triple superphosphate. Natural phosphatic fertilizers, on the other hand, are those fertilizers that are obtained from substances existing in nature and do not undergo any type of treatment or processing. Some examples of natural phosphate fertilizers are bone meal and phosphate rocks. Many of the phosphate fertilizers are in liquid form and should be administered by diluting them in the water used for watering. These fertilizers can be used for any type of cultivation, be it cereals, vegetables, fruit trees or simply trees for ornamental purposes.
