fibrophos is unique as an all in one concentrated fertiliser for grassland. It not only raises the soil Phosphate and Potash status but it also contains a complete range of secondary and trace elements, including Calcium which provides a good lime value for the soil.
fibrophos as a source of Phosphate for grass
|Objective And Method|
|Levington Agriculture Ltd||1992-4||Project LA201|
|The trial set out to evaluate fibrophos as a Phosphate source when applied to grassland. The trial ran for three years. The soil chosen was a sandy clay with a pH of 5.9. P & K indices were both 1 with a Mg index of 2. A randomised block, replicated 4 times was chosen.
A uniform dressing of N & K was applied in the spring and a single cut taken in June 1994. fibrophos was compared with TSP and Rock Phosphate.

fibrophos is an effective Phosphate source similar to TSP and superior to (Gafsa)Phosphate rock in both grass dry matter and Phosphate yield.
