Organic phosphate contains Coral Calcium, Phosphoric and Silicic acids that come from the dropping of sea birds, the remains of fish, seaweed, and various other kinds of minerals.

Phosphoric Acid:

Special features:

  1. Organic-phosphoric acid consists of:

    About 70% of the citric acid is soluble and the rest of P is slowly released into the soil and constantly available in the soil. It is acknowledged that plants need continual phosphorus supply throughout its growth period to ensure a maximum harvest. This function cannot be found in chemical fertilizers such as superphosphate. Thus, organophosphates are proven to increase harvests compared to chemically treated phosphate fertilizers.

  2. Plants absorb organic phosphates very effectively because the phosphoric acid is absorbed at a lower temperature compared to other phosphoric acid fertilizers. The table below contains some comparison between the organic hyper phosphate fertilizers at Minjingu:

  3. The main component in Organic phosphate is Di calcium phosphate, which has a low solubility and does not condense. This reduces problems caused by unstable densities.

Why do Plants Need Phosphoric Acid?

When plants absorb appropriate amounts of phosphoric acid, nitrogen and potassium, they grow well and develop immunity to diseases and insects. Phosphoric acid is a crucial ingredient for plants to grow and reproduce.

While nitrogen and potassium aid growth, the excessive administration of potassium counters the fertilizing effect of magnesium and delays fruiting. During the early growth stages, excessive nitrogen causes a rapid growth rate and prevents the plant from maturing and moving into germination stage. It can also delay flowering and reduce the plants’ immunity to disease.

Plants require phosphoric acid mostly during the germination stage. Organophosphate reduces excessive nitrogen in the plants while phosphoric acid promotes plants to root vigorously and absorb nutrition. Organophosphate also prevents the growth of vines, promotes fruiting, and increases sweetness.

Coral Calcium:

Special features:

  1. Calcium is an element that is usually used in Calcium containing fertilizers and tends to be washed away easily, however, Coral Calcium does not.

  2. Coral Calcium does not rapidly neutralize soil acidity, however, when included in Organic phosphate, it promotes healthier soil and enhances safety for plants.

  3. Coral- Calcium is sponge like in nature, it is porous and holds moisture. It promotes microorganisms in the soil.

  4. The Calcium contained in Coral Calcium does not chemically react with other components in soil, making it is easier for plants to absorb.

Silicic Acid:

Special features:

  1. Silicic Acid contained in Organophosphate is produced from organic Matter and thus does not harden and is easily absorbed. Calcium Silicic Acid, which is usually used as silicic fertilizer, is made from non- organic matter, and its solubility is deferent.

  2. 60% of the earth’s crust is made of Silicic Acid

  3. Silicic Acid enhances cation exchange capacity and increases soil fertility.

  4. It was believed that Silicic Acid was only required by so called Silicic plants, however, this has been proven to be incorrect. Non Silicic Acid plants that lack Silicic Acid during their growth process tend to stop growing. If the plants are replenished with Silicic Acid, grow restarts making Silicic Acid indispensable to plants.

  5. Silicic Acid rice plants produce silicate cytoplasm in the rice to strengthen the rice, protect it from diseases and insects, and strengthen the rice stalks.

  6. Lack of Silicic acid decreases the effects of calcium, and increases the risk of disease.

Micronutrient (Minerals):

Special features:
Organic phosphate
contains secondary as well as micronutrients including Magnesium, Boron, Ferric Oxide, and Sulfur.

  1. The amount of micronutrients decreases after each harvest. The appropriate application of micronutrients will help reduce growth retardation due to continuous cropping. Previously, micronutrients were replenished naturally in the soil, however, due to deteriorated soil structures we require fertilizers. Although plants require only a small amount of minerals, balanced application will stimulate the reproduction of microorganisms in the soil, increasing soil fertility and reducing degradation.

  2. The lack of micronutrients damage plant growth and reproduction increasing the risk of diseases. Moreover, the lack of micronutrients reduces the absorption of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potassium in fertilizer.
