KELPHOS (Kenyan Land Phosphate) Planting Fertilizer
KELPHOS FERTILIZER is a non-acidic (neutral) planting fertilizer used in all crops like maize, wheat, Beans, Tea, and Cotton, Oilseed, Sugarcane, Coffee etc. It is a multi-nutrient carrier fertilizer. Other than 21% P2O5 it contains sulphur in Water soluble Sulphate farm: 12% and CaO: 24% and number of micro-nutrients (Micro-nutrients are essential for plant growth and play an important role in balanced crop nutrition.
They include Boron (B), Copper (Cu).Iron (Fe), Manganese (Mn), Molybdenum Mo), Zinc (Zn), Nickel (Ni) and Chloride (CI)).
They are as important to plant nutrition as primary and secondary nutrients, though plants don’t require as much as of them. A lack of any one of the micronutrients in the soil can limit growth, even when all other nutrients are present in adequate amounts. Hence continuous use of KELPHOS fertilizer sustains the soil productivity.
Advantage of KELPHOS fertilizer
Suitable for all types of crops
Lowest price per kg
It is the cheapest source of Sulphur for the soil.
CaO improve Moisture holding capacity of soil. CaO assists crops to grow when rain is erratic.
Important in development of root system & nutrients from the deep in the soil.
Agronomically also suitable for dry land forming.
The additional advantage in SSP Fertilizer is that it contains vital nutrient of Sulphur & Calcium without any extra cost.
Importance of phosphorus for Crops
It is an important source of energy for plants.
It develops roots of the plants is better way which helps them to absorb elements from soil
It helps the crops to ripe in time
It makes grains healthy which earn farmers a good consideration for their crops.
It increases storage capacity of crops for long duration and also prevents fruits and vegetables from being rotten.
Agriculture Scientists have proved that it is profitable to administer KELPHOS Super phosphate along with Urea or CAN in place of Diammonium phosphate(DAP) to crops
Importance of Sulphur in crops
Like Nitrogen, Phosphorous, Potash required for plants. Sulphur is also an essential element for high yield of crops.
Because of growing crops year after year, the soil becomes Sulphur deficient. The deficiency of Nitrogen and Phosphorous is compensated by farmers by using Urea & Dap but, they do not use anything to eliminate sulphur deficiency which affects productivity of crops.
Generally, crops of grains absorbs 3-4kg.of sulphur to produce 1MT of product, pulses absorb 6-8kg. of sulphur to produce 1MT of product while Oil-seeds need 10-12kg. of sulphur to produce 1MT of product.
If the deficiency of sulphur is compensated to soil, it gives 15-30% high productivity of crops besides giving good quality of product.
It increases capacity of plants to cope up with disease
Importance of Calcium for crops
It strengthens the plants.
It is a good soil conditioner.
It helps in improving PH in acidic land and unlock most of essential nutrients from soil.
It helps in developing roots and overall growth of plants
It helps to make the grain strong and healthy.
It gives strength to stem of plants thereby they absorb contents from soil at maximum level which prevents them from diseases resulting into health crops.
No special agronomic or handling precautions are required for SSP.
Its agronomic effectiveness is similar to other dry or liquid phosphate fertilizers.
