Super phosphate is the first commercial mineral fertilizer,which led to the development of the modern plant nutrient industry.
Phosphate fertilizers are used worldwide to improve crop yield by providing them with the required quantity of phosphates and phosphoric acids. They are required to meet the needs of the world’s growing population and depletion of soil nutrients. Phosphate fertilizers are classified as either acid-treated or thermal-processed. Acid-treated phosphorus is the most commonly used fertilizer. Thermal-processed phosphoric acid is preferred to produce liquid fertilizers due to its purity.
Superphosphate is the first commercial mineral fertilizer,which led to the development of the modern plant nutrient industry. Superphosphate is a widely used phosphaticfertilizer. This is followed by diammonium phosphate (DAP) thatoffers the correct proportion of phosphate and nitrogen needed to cultivate wheat, barley, and vegetables. It is applied in the early stage of the fruit orchard fertilization.
It includesP2O5 (46%) and ammoniacal nitrogen (18%). DAP is the most broadly used phosphatic fertilizer among cultivators. It is manufactured by reacting phosphoric acid and ammonia and contains two ammonia molecules. In alkaline soil conditions, one of the ammonia molecules in DAP will revert to ammonia, making it an excellent fit for low pH or alkaline soil. DAP is an alkali with a high pH (>7.5).DAP is produced in many locations globally, and is a widely traded fertilizer commodity.
