SOFTrockphos

SOFTrockphos

SOFTrockphos is an Australian source of apatite-derived phosphorus. It is uniquely formulated with a range of nutrients to replenish the soil, enhance a plant’s ability to produce and store energy and attract and store the ionic minerals and nutrients it needs for growth and production.

 

Most Australian soils are naturally low in phosphorus and unsuitable for sustained crop and pasture production. To achieve maximum returns, growers must apply phosphorus fertilisers to achieve productive yields.

 

SOFTrockphos is a silicon material that increases the soil’s cation exchange capacity, enabling the soil to hold more positively charged nutrients like calcium, potassium, magnesium and trace elements. This igneous calcium phosphate rock has high levels of minerals containing phosphate and is also referred to as rock phosphate or phosphate rock.

 

Benefits of SOFTrockphos

High in phosphorus 16%

High in calcium 33%

Exceptional trace element levels

Long lasting - controlled release

Low in heavy metal contaminants - extremely low in cadmium less than 0.5ppm

Additional nutrients may be added to suit your crop or soil or may be added to compost, fertiliser blends or seed mixes

Belt spreads onto soils in agriculture and horticulture

Cost effective – offers an affordable alternative to expensive inorganic phosphates

Remains in soil – stays in the soil until used by the plants without leaching supporting soil bacteria and earthworms.

  • What is BioChar Activated™?

    BioChar Activated™ Additive is produced by heating biomass at high temperatures with controlled oxygen. It is highly porous and consequently has good absorption qualities. This means BioChar Activated™ is very good at retaining water, toxins and bacteria. These qualities cause BioChar Activated™ to slow digestion and increase gastrointestinal tract surface area, allowing for improved feed conversion ratios and production.

  • Why do plants need Phosphorus?

    Phosphorus (P) is one of the 17 essential elements required for plants. Phosphorus is used to capture the sun’s energy and convert it to useful plant compounds. Therefore, it is essential for normal growth and development.

     

    Phosphorus:

    Transfers energy from sunlight to plants

    Stimulates root development

    Improves crop quality

    Improves seed production

    Enhances earlier crop maturity

    Assists development throughout entire life cycle
