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.
Special Features of Coral Calcium
- Calcium is an element that is usually used in Calcium containing fertilizers and tends to be washed away easily, however, Coral Calcium does not respond that way.
- 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.
Special Features of Silicic Acid
- 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, growth 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.
Special Features of Available Micronutrients
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 constant application of the 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.
- The lack of micronutrients shall damage plant growth and reproduction thus increasing the risk of diseases. Moreover, the lack of micronutrients reduces the absorption of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potassium in fertilizer when applied.
Importance of Phosphate in Agriculture and Plant Nutrition
Phosphorous is involved in plant respiration, energy storage and transfer, cell division, and enlargement. It promotes early root formation, increases growth, and improves the quality of fruits, vegetables, and grain. Phosphorous is vital in seed formation and helps plants survive harsh weather conditions and increase the rate of water absorption.
