Unique properties and benefits of ammophos
When choosing effective fertilizers based on phosphorus, the choice of most experienced farmers falls on ammophos, the price and quality of which is ideal for both seasonal application and regular feeding of various crops.
Full name Ammophos sounds like ammonium phosphate. Its main advantages are easy digestibility and speed of action, which favorably distinguish fertilizer against the background of other superphosphates. Also, these valuable properties significantly expand the range of applications of ammophos. Fertilizer can be used both for planned soil enrichment with a view to future harvests, and for emergency assistance to plants and soil when a lack of phosphorus is detected.
NH4H2PO4 + (NH4) 2HPO4 - this is how ammonium phosphate, or ammophos, is denoted, the formula of which includes two phosphates : monoammonium phosphate NH4H2PO4 and diammonium phosphate (NH4) 2HPO4, respectively.
As you can immediately notice, this agrochemical is completely free of any by-substances, and therefore the fertilizer is a practical and effective fertilizing on a mineral basis with a stable and constant effect .
Obtaining ammonium phosphate implies a chemical process during which phosphoric acid is neutralized with ammonia. The end result of the reaction is ammophos, which contains approximately 12% ammonia and 52% phosphorus. Its useful to note, what exactly the 12:52 ratio is considered an indicator of the quality of this agrochemical and a guarantee of its effectiveness.
Among the special properties of ammophos, it is worth highlighting its excellent water solubility, which allows it to be used in agriculture as part of various fertilizing solutions, including for additional nutrition of root plants. Despite its excellent degradability in the aquatic environment, the argrochemical practically does not absorb air moisture, which may well be considered an advantage, since due to this property the chances that the fertilizer will become damp are extremely low.
Having mentioned the numerous advantages of fertilization, it is necessary note and disadvantages. Although they are not recognized by all reputable agrochemists, some still consider the high content of nitrogen in ammophos as a minus. In contrast, there is a lot of strong evidence that nitrogen is not a disadvantage, but an underestimated advantage. One of the most compelling arguments in favor of this is the explanation of the primary and primary task of ammophos fertilization - the saturation of phosphorus in plants that practically or completely do not assimilate phosphorites. Since it is nitrogen that helps the assimilation process as one of the indispensable elements of water-soluble phosphates, its presence provides the excellent nutritional functions of ammophos.
Although ammonium phosphate works well on a wide variety of soil types in a variety of environments, it is often used by inhabitants of arid regions and zones where the soil does not require a large amount of nitrogen, however needs phosphorus.
As already mentioned, one of the main reasons to buy ammophos is its versatility. The agrochemical allows both to fertilize the land for the growth of various crops in the future, and to provide emergency assistance and resuscitation of already grown plants suffering from a lack of phosphorites.
In order for the fertilizer to give the best result, it can and should be combined with others agrochemicals containing nitrogen: for example, ammonium nitrate. As practice shows, the combined application of these fertilizers increases the yield up to 40%.
It is noteworthy that not only large farmers use ammophos - it is also recommended to buy it for summer residents who carefully cherish their harvest. Alas, many private farmers refuse this ammophos and complain about its inefficiency. The reason for the lack of the result of ammophos, as a rule, is simple and lies in the fact that it is used incorrectly. Due to ignorance and inexperience, some use this agrochemical for all crops growing in their possessions, while not all of them need it.
Each group of plants requires an individual approach - a universal fertilizer for everything does not yet exist , and therefore it is impossible to sin on ammophos in this case. In order to get the most out of this ammophos, it is necessary to know which crops and plants it is uniquely suitable for. The most susceptible to ammonium phosphate were and remain:
• Potatoes. Thanks to the phosphorus feeding, both the volume of the crop and the starch content in the grown potatoes increase. Traditionally add 2 g of fertilizer per well.
• Grapes. With the help of ammophos (400 g of ammophos per 10 l of water) in the spring, fertilize the soil under the vines, and then add it in the form of a solution for feeding the leaves (150 g of fertilizer per 10 l of water). In addition to its nutritional function, ammophos also prevents the accumulation of nitrates in ripe grapes.
• Beets (all types). Fertilizer promotes the accumulation of sugar in fruits and helps to remove harmful and potentially pathogenic substances from them. Ammophos is introduced into the soil during the planting of beets with the calculation of 5 g of ammophos granules per 1 meter of the planted row.
Industrial production of ammophos
Due to the fact that the technology of manufacturing this agrochemical on an industrial scale in the world perfected one hundred percent, now you can buy ammophos at the earliest need in almost any fertilizer market.
Farmers only have to choose a manufacturer. Despite the presence of foreign analogues of the fertilizer, the domestic version, as well as the products of neighboring countries, continues to be in special demand. This can be explained quite simply - due to the successful long-term use, each customer can be sure that the effect of ammophos on his plants and soil will be effective and accurate, without any unpleasant surprises.< Pre-introduced ammophos, which can be bought at any time of the year, will guarantee an excellent harvest and trouble-free growing of crops. The most preferred times to apply this chemical are during spring and fall. Experienced agrochemists advise using ammophos at the rate of 20-25 g per sq. m for cultivated soils, and about 30 g per sq. m for uncultured.
