In addition to sun and water, crops rely on the natural elements of phosphate, potassium and nitrogen for successful growth and development. However, due to land degradation from human agricultural activity, the fertility and abundance of these natural core elements have depleted in the Earth's soil. Use of direct application organic rock phosphate is vital for enriching soil for high-yielding organic farming.
Fertilizers are instrumental in replenishing the nutrients in our soil’s every harvest to produce healthy and abundant crops for food production. Phosphate’s contribution boosts crop yields and quality to ensure each year’s productions are as enriching as the last. Manufacturers produce a variety of fertilizers that contain nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium in various proportions. The proportions are adjusted to meet the needs of a specific crop and to allow for the level of plant available nutrients necessary in the soil. Rock phosphate is an important and necessary ingredient for meeting variable soil conditions and specific plant requirements.
Each nutrient has a particular role in supporting the growth of plant life and needs to be in the right proportion to the other primary nutrients. It is not possible to use one primary nutrient as a substitute for any other nutrient. There is no substitute for phosphate known to man.
With the continued growth demand for organic food, grains, and poultry, farmers are looking to maximize their
crop yields and produce top quality produce and feed without sacrificing the balance of nature.
