Soft Rock Phosphate

Phosphorus (P) is a major plant nutrient found in every living plant cell. It is essential for healthy plant growth as it is responsible for key plant functions, such as energy transfer, photosynthesis, formation of sugars and starches, and nutrient movement within the plant.

An estimated 80% of soils in Sub-Saharan Africa are deficient in phosphorus. Phosphorus deficiency in plants causes poor root development and hence the uptake of water and nutrients from the soil or growing medium is reduced. Leaf development is also retarded, resulting in plants that have fewer and smaller leaves, reduced photosynthesis, and limited productivity.

Talborne’s soft rock phosphate is an effective way to correct soils deficient in phosphorus.
