ICL technical phosphates are used extensively in consumer and greenhouse specialty fertilizers. Phosphorus is an essential plant nutrient, required for the storage and transfer of energy. It also plays a key role in early plant growth and development. Potassium phosphates (MKP, TKPP and others) allow the formulation of liquid and granular fertilizers. These phosphates dissolve readily in water and provide both phosphorus and potassium nutrient values. For specialty fertilizers in soluble form and of high P2O5 analysis, phosphoric acid is recommended. Analysis in fertilizer terms is shown in the following table.
