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
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
- 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:
Super Phosphate / Ammonium
Steamed bone meal
- 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
Calcium is an element that is usually
used in Calcium containing fertilizers and tends to be washed
away easily, however, Coral Calcium does not.
Coral Calcium does not rapidly neutralize
soil acidity, however, when included in Organic phosphate,
it promotes healthier soil and enhances safety for plants.
Coral- Calcium is sponge like in nature,
it is porous and holds moisture. It promotes microorganisms
in the soil.
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 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.
60% of the earth’s crust is made
of Silicic Acid
Silicic Acid enhances cation exchange capacity
and increases soil fertility.
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.
- 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.
- Lack of Silicic acid decreases the effects of
calcium, and increases the risk of disease.
Organic phosphate contains secondary as well as micronutrients
including Magnesium, Boron, Ferric Oxide, and Sulfur.
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
- 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.
