Ammonium Phosphate Monobasic /NPK 12-61-00)
Ammonium Phosphate Monobasic is a common phosphorus and nitrogen source. It is composed of two common fertiliser ingredients and has the highest phosphorus of any typical solid fertiliser. The manufacture is a rather straightforward procedure. A one-to-one ratio of ammonia and phosphoric acid is reacted conventionally, and the resultant slurry is consolidated in a granulator.
Molecular Formulae- H6NO4P
Alternative Names- Ammonium dihydrogen phosphate, Monoammonium phosphate
ADVANTAGES AND USES-
- For many years, ammonium phosphate monobasic has been an essential granular fertiliser. It is water-soluble and dissolves quickly in damp soil.
- Ammonium phosphate monobasic fertiliser is a great source of phosphorus and nitrogen for plant nutrition.
- It is used to maintain the pH of the soil.
- It is the most commonly used fertiliser in drill-sown fields.
- 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 cereals, pulses, oilseeds, paddy, sugarcane, bananas, oilseeds, tobacco, potatoes, and all types of vegetables.
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 ammonium phosphate monobasic at the start of the growing season for the best results.
- It is recommended that 2 to 4 kg of our ammonium phosphate monobasic should 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 ammonium phosphate monobasic in the trench and then cover the trench with soil.
