Why Phosphorus is Important for your Soils & Plant Growth?

It might not be the first thing you consider, but phosphorus is one of the most vital components of healthy soil. A critical, but often overlooked mineral, available phosphorus offers the potential to radically increase the health, yield and vitality of your crops. Choosing a fertiliser that is naturally rich in available phosphorus, such as Guano Gold, compost, or mulch, is a fantastic way to revitalise your plants. Below you’ll find an explanation of why phosphorus is so important to your fertiliser.

Phosphorus - The Building Blocks Of Plantlife

The presence of available phosphorus is crucial to the existence of all plant life. Phosphorus enables the plant to convert other nutrients into the vital building blocks it needs to thrive. A lack of Available phosphorus will result in plants that are small, weak, non-flowering, and lacking good root structure. For this reason, it’s one of the most important components of a great fertiliser.

Phosphorus Enriches Soil Health

It’s vital to consider your soil and the role that phosphorus plays in its health. Your plants may be growing fantastically, but are they depleting the levels of phosphorus without you knowing? It’s always smart to play it safe and add more. In fact, growing crops consume it at such a rapid rate that it’s very difficult to ever have too much of it. Replacing nutrients and balancing your soil ensures the vitality and longevity of the entire ecosystem.

Increase Photosynthesis With Added Phosphorus

Phosphorus is a key element of photosynthesis and plant sugar production. Photosynthesis allows plants to capture photons from the sun, giving them the energy to convert carbon dioxide into food and fibre. Available Phosphorus is vital in this transformation of light into sugar. For this reason, healthy plants and high crop yields are fundamentally supported by a strong presence of phosphorus.

The Importance of Finding a Phosphorus-Rich Fertiliser

Once you understand the importance of phosphorus to our plants, it’s obviously crucial to find a fertiliser that supports this relationship. With increasing interest in phosphorus by a huge number of farmers and growers, it’s no wonder that the industry has begun to pay attention. At Guano Australia, we’re proud to be leading the pack with an unrivalled selection of natural fertilisers, including our top sellers, Guano Sulphur Gold & Guano Gold-Kwik Start-KMS Big Combo.

Being so far away from our markets, durability is critical and the Silica is really good in terms of hardening up the skin and making the melons better to transport.Ord River WA irrigator David Menzel-Barradale
The problem with many organic fertilisers is that they have very low rates of nutrients, meaning you need to put out high rates. A product like Guano Gold has 12pc P, whereas Guano Sulphur Gold has 10.5pc P, obviously with additional sulphur. These figures compare very favourably with something like a single superphosphate product. Agronomically, it’s a good product in any setting, not just for organic producers.Garry Allison, Landmark Agronomist. Mount Gambier, SA
For the broadacre croppers, Guano Gold works really well in paddocks where they have had issues with nutrient tie-up. He said the majority of synthetic P products have large rates of water soluble P. The problem with that is that you can have instances where it ends up tying up zinc in the soil so you run into problems with zinc deficiencies. Not only does the slow release nature of the Guano Gold product work well over the entire season, it also contains zinc for the crop as well as the other nutrients.Moree agronomist Rob Drewitt
We strongly recommend the Guano Gold products to fellow farmers if they are looking at improving their Calcium and Silica levels using various methods of application such as foliar and granular.James and Aimee Thomas Falkirk Macadamia Farm
I have recommended Guano Gold products for 20 years and in all cases had excellent long-term results increasing in pasture productivity.Paul Baguely - PB Ag Consulting
They are high analysis products so you get your nutrients without having to put too much fertiliser out.Anthony Beutel, Googa Farm Organics
We have known since the 1930s that phosphorus is one of the main elements required to grow a successful crop of not just the (flax) plant but the seed. It was one of those products that was first out in a granular type form and it was so much easier to get an even coverage over the ground, rather than a powder form. Later on the product became a little more refined, so we could put it through our air-seeder. We also broadcast some of it, prior to seeding, when we are cultivating ground. The products have great characteristics in relation to phosphate and silica, which is exactly what we need for flax.Waltanna Farms flax-seed farmer & Ambassador for Guano Australia, Michael Nagorcka
