Answer: Probably blood meal. As Javed pointed out, there are many factors that can underlie iron deficiency. However, ferrous sulfate is a synthetic fertilizer and is thus not considered "organic". Blood meal contains hemoglobin, which is rich in chelated iron, making it readily available for pla...


Phosphorus (P) inputs are required for sustainable agricultural production in most acid soils of the tropics and subtropics. Phosphate rocks (PR) and organic materials have been suggested as alternative P sources in these soils. Quantitative information on the P availability from sewage sludge (SL) is scanty. Methods to improve the effectiveness of PR such as partial acidulation and compaction ...

The experiment compared PAPR with single superphosphate. The PAPR was made by acidulating an indigenous Indian phosphate rock (Mussoorie) with H2SO4 at 50% acidulation level. P response was evaluated at a single relatively high N rate (120 kg ha−1) with …

Phosphorus deficiency is one of the major constraints for normal plant growth and crop yields in the acid soils of Ghana and therefore addition of P inputs is required for sustainable crop production. This is often difficult, if not impossible for small-scale farmers due to the high cost of mineral P fertilizers and limited access to fertilizer supplies. Direct application of finely ground ...


12%Field and pot culture experiments were conducted in terai acid soil (Haplaquoll) to evaluate the fertilizer value of one basic slag and two rock phosphates, such as Purulia rock phosphate (Igneous) and Mussoorie rock phosphate (sedimentary). In the field experiments two crop sequences were followed: (i) Rice — wheat — greengram (ii) Greengram — rice — wheat. In terms of …


Four sources of phosphatic (P) fertilizers namely, triple superphosphate (TSP), Morocco rock phosphate (MORP), partially acidulated phosphate rock (PAPR) and Mussoorie rock phosphate (MRP) were used.


It was found that modified biochar can hold one-third of the phosphorus amount contained in the commonly used agricultural fertilizer simple superphosphate (1 × 10 5 g of modified biochar ...


With a limited indigenous supply of phosphate fertilizer rock, India relies primarily on imports to meet its rising requirements for phosphate fertilizer, that drives demand and improves sales. Rising global food demand and domestic biofuel mandates have created competition among the players to supply phosphate fertilizer for limited farmland.


Partial acidulation of phosphate rock (PR) or compaction of PR with soluble P fertilizers can improve the usefulness of unreactive PR for use as P fertilizer. A greenhouse study was conducted to evaluate nonconventional phosphate fertilizers derived from a low reactive Sukulu Hills PR from Uganda. Raw PR (which contained 341.0 g kg−1 Fe2O3), beneficiated or concentrate PR, partially ...


A high grade quality rock phosphate is an essential requirement for manufacturing of phosphatic fertilizers. In India, 15.3 mt of indigenous deposits of high grade rock phosphate could meet hardly ...


Sanchez reported very high rate of annual depletion for 22 kg nitrogen (N), 2.5 kg phosphorus (P), and 15 kg potassium (K) per hectare of cultivated land or an annual loss equivalent to 4 billion U.S. dollar in fertilizer in 37 African countries over three decades. Due to large quantities of nutrients are removed from soil through crop harvest ...


Phosphate rock contains varying amounts of innate Cd and some of that Cd is transferred to fertilizer products during the manufacturing process. In addition to other anthropogenic activities (e.g. mining Zn bearing ores, combustion of fossil fuel, waste incineration, land application of sewage sludge and manure, and irrigation water), P ...


To enhance the fertilizer value of rock phosphate in alkaline soils, the phosphate (P) solubilizing fungus Penicillium oxalicum was isolated from the rhizosphere soil of rock phosphate mine ...


Minjingu phosphate rock (MPR) (12.8 % total P (128 g kg −1), 3.0 % neutral ammonium citrate soluble P (30 g kg −1), and 26.9 % Ca (269 g kg −1) from northern Tanzania, and triple superphosphate (TSP) (20 % P) (200 g kg −1) were the sources of P used in this study.MPR was applied as finely ground powder (> 90 % passing through a 100-mesh sieve), and TSP was applied in commercially ...


Researchers have even added phosphate rock into composting substrates in an attempt to improve the availability of phosphorus as a result of the composting process (Nishanth and Biswas, 2008). However, the comprehensive effects of phosphate addition on the reduction of nitrogen loss, the increase in available phosphorus and the stabilization of ...


high-grade phosphorus ore resources) crisis was increasingly obvious, becoming a worldly common challenge today (Van Vuuren et al., 2010; Dawson et al., 2011). Although China's total reserves of phosphate rock resources was rich, more than 80% was low-grade phosphate rock (LGPR), P2O5 content was less than 17% in the average (Lu, 2004).


12%Phosphorus (P) is critically needed to improve the soil fertility for crop production in large areas of developing countries. The high cost of conventional, water-soluble P fertilizers constrains their use by resource-poor farmers. Finely ground phosphate rock (PR) has been tested and used as a direct application fertilizer on tropical acid soils as a low-cost alternative where indigenous ...

Hazara Phosphate Fertilizers (Private) Limited; (HPFL) is located at Hattar Road, District Haripur. The Plant was commissioned in 1989 having the facility to produce 110 metric tonne per day of Sulphuric Acid and 300 metric tonne per day of Granulated Single Super Phosphate (GSSP).It is based on AZF Chimie process and uses Phosphate Rock and ...


An indigenous Cellulosimicrobium cellulans GS6 isolate able to solubilize insoluble phosphate complexes in soil is a potential bacterial fertilizer. Enclosure of the phosphate-solubilizing bacterium (PSB) in biodegradable capsules may protect the PSB cells inoculated into soil and, in the meantime, enable the control of cell release that confers long-term fertilizing effects.


The methods used to measure the solubility of PR rock stem from procedures used to analyse conventional water- and citrate-soluble phosphate fertilizers. Unless standard procedural steps are observed strictly, solubility figures obtained by different experimenters on the same rock sources using the same methods may show considerable ...

Rock phosphate is the raw material used to manufacture most commercial phosphate fertilizers on the market. In the past, ground rock phosphate itself has been used as a source of P for acid soils. However, very little rock phosphate is currently used in agriculture due to low availability of P in this native material, high transportation costs ...
