31 reasons to use FCMP

  1. Soil loss through leaching is up to 22 times less than for soluble P sources
  2. Is suitable for use in organic agriculture
  3. Can be stored in open covered areas
  4. Easy to store, will not cake or solidify
  5. Will not corrode equipment when residues are left in place
  6. Is not harmful to animals, humans or plants
  7. Cannot be overdosed on plants
  8. Is safe to use around stock and graze in treated areas
  9. Flows evenly and rapidly when dry
  10. Easy to mix with other compatible fertilisers
  11. Easy to apply and spread and is also available in granular form for air seeders       and aircraft spreading
  12. Contains a balance of P, Ca, Mg, and Si
  13. Is Acid soluble
  14. Is Water insoluble
  15. 15.Is 95% citrate soluble
  16. Is 95% plant available
  17. Has the same neutralising value as Ag Lime.
  18. Release rates are mitigated by acidity, plant demand and moisture soil loss through leaching is up to 22 times less than for soluble P sources
  19. Remains available in P fixing soils, resisting Al and Fe tie-up
  20. Removes a proportion of Fe and Al ions from the soil solution
  21. Form Al and Fe silicates that absorb nutrients and moisture
  22. Releases silicates to plants and the soil
  23. Silicates improve plant resistance to a range of insects and diseases
  24. Reduces metabolic nutrient deficiencies in animals with grass tetany or milk  fever
  25. May change weed or pasture species spectrum makes less palatable plants(non-toxic) more attractive to animals
  26. 28.Will observe animals preferential grazing FCMP treated areas
  27. Increases and extends the grazing period in forage and pasture species
  28. FCMP will ‘flocculate’ make soils softer and easier to manage
  29. Reduces sodium content over time
