BioAg’s range ofbiologically digested reactive phosphate rock (RPR) based products are madefrom high quality RPR imported from Egypt.
This is unloadedin Geelong Port (Victoria) and at the BioAg site at Batesford Quarry, outsideGeelong, the RPR is treated with a biological digester made at our Narranderaplant.
This processreleases the phosphorus making it plant available, both immediately, and forcontinuous release and the improved soil microbial activity “unlocks”previously-applied nutrients.
The rockphosphate contains beneficial soil microbes which ensures that 40 per cent ofthe phosphorus is available to the plant immediately, the remainder beingslowly released as needed.
Microbes in thesoil play an important role in the process of releasing phosphorus to plants asis well documented by independent research.
The processenables the build-up of “Capital P”, or a reservoir of future availablephosphorus.
One of BioAg’sproducts is BioAgPhos S10 and is ideal for higher rainfall acidic soils.
It contains 12%phosphorous, 10% sulphur and 31% calcium and is less than single superphosphatein price on a “per unit of P” basis but, most importantly, the phosphoruscomponent doesn’t lock up in the soil and has the following benefits:
* Rejuvenatesnatural soil fertility and structure
* Improves plantgrowth, nutritional value and yields
* Can be easilymixed with lime and/or gypsum
* Applied using abelt spreader or by aircraft
