Di Ammonium Phosphate/DAP/di Ammonium Hydrogen O-Phosphate
Di Ammonium phosphate is a compound that combines two essential ingredients for plant growth: Ammonium and Phosphate. Diammonium phosphate is one of several water-soluble ammonium phosphate ions formed when ammonia interacts with phosphoric acid. In agriculture, it is used as a fertilizer.
Molecular Formulae- (NH4)2HPO4
Alternative Names- Diammonium Hydrogen Phosphate
ADVANTAGES AND USES-
- Diammonium phosphate is used to maintain the pH of the soil.
- DAP fertiliser is a great source of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) for plant nutrition.
- Because it is extremely soluble, it dissolves fast in soil, releasing plant-available phosphate and ammonium.
- For salty and alkaline soils, diammonium phosphate fertiliser is recommended.
- It increases the number of flowers and fruit sets, which enhances crop quality and production.
- It is free-flowing, dust-free, and does not generally cause storage issues.
- Recommended for crops like sugarcane, cotton, oilseeds, and pulse crops.
HOW IT WORKS-
- It works as an important nitrogen source in fertilizers.
- Nitrogen is important for crops as it is a major component that makes up chlorophyll.
TIME OF APPLICATION-
- Use our diammonium phosphate at the start of the growing season for the best results.
- It is recommended that 2.5 to 5 kg of diammonium phosphate be used per cubic yard.
HOW TO USE-
- Dig a trench around 2-3 inches deep all around the plant, leaving 3 inches from the plant trunk.
- Uniformly spread our diammonium phosphate in the trench and then cover the trench with soil.
- Water the plant till some water comes out of the bottom of the pot.
