DID YOU KNOW FOSSILS CAN HELP PLANTS GROW?
MSR is a non-metallic element derived from the fossilized remains of ancient organic life beneath the sea. As a result, it’s usually found in rock form and it contains over 70 additional trace minerals that can reignite degraded soil.
The process of micronisation refines MSR into particles no larger than 10 microns in size. They have a relatively large surface area and can be easily suspended in water. But once they’re applied, microbes in soil can easily solubilise the phosphate and access the additional trace elements available. It’s incredibly efficient compared to traditional NPK fertilisers, and we only need to use it in small amounts of between 2-5kg/Ha to see visible results.
We’ve already touched on the benefits you can expect by applying phosphate, but MSR can also improve seed germination, root growth and rates of photosynthesis because of the effects of the additional trace minerals. It has also been approved for organic use by organic agencies throughout North America, however care should always be taken to ensure no damage is done to crops when using this product for foliar application. Feel free to contact us for advice before applying MSR to your plants.
WHAT MAKES PHOSPHORUS SPECIAL?
Other than nitrogen, every other mineral applied to plants should be done in phosphate form. Phosphorus is an incredible facilitator to soil. When combined with calcium it can increase the rate of photosynthesis, and in turn, the production of sugar.
Phosphorus is found in several forms in soil; P1, P2 and P204. P204 is the organic state stable in soil, making it the only form available to plants. All other forms of phosphorous require metabolic changes before plants are able to utilize it.
