TERRAMAG (P) (Standard) is an ACTIVE AMENDMENT consisting of phosphoric rock and magnesium silicate reacted with sulfuric acid. TERRAMAG (P) (Standard) contains 11% MgO and 16% CaO for a Ca / Mg ratio of 1.8

Description


Phosphorus is one of the essential elements known as greater to be required in greater quantity by the crops. TERRAMAG (P) (Standard) contains 11.5% of P2O5 and a portion of this phosphorus is assimilable because it comes from acidulated phosphoric rock. TERRAMAG (P) (Standard) contains 6.5% S and all sulfur is available as sulfate ion from acidification. The acid causes magnesium sulfate, calcium phosphate and magnesium phosphate to be formed. In addition the product is granulated, without the presence of dust and with a very high surface area due to the presence of silicic acid (silica gel).


Soils are frequently subjected to:


Potassium fertilization (NPK).
 Acid residual effect of fertilizers in general.
• Effect of leaching of the bases and the own absorption of the plants.

These facts make that:


• The pH of the soil decreases.
• The exchangeable aluminum increases and the cations Ca and Mg decrease.


For aluminum control and pH correction, amendments such as TORNADO (P) are used, but if a fast supply of Calcium and Magnesium is required, it is necessary to use more soluble sources such as: TERRAMAG (P) (Standard)


Magnesium (Mg) plays a very important role in the metabolism of plants, as it is the central atom of the green leaf pigment (chlorophyll) responsible for photosynthesis, and also fulfills functions such as:


Activator of breathing metabolism.
Generator of certain enzymes.
Participates in the synthesis and accumulation of carbohydrates, fats and proteins.
Intervenes in the transport of phosphates.


Mg is a moving element within the plant and is absorbed from the soil as the Mg2 + cation. For this reason no amendments should be applied with only calcium but must also contain magnesium.

he sulfate ion allows magnesium and calcium to have a deeper action.

The magnesium phosphate produced has the advantage of being insoluble in water and therefore prevents losses by leaching and phosphorus fixation in the soil, but at the same time it is assimilable because it is soluble in citric acid.

Silicon is not an essential element for plants but its action is recognized by increasing defenses and resistance to withstand conditions of biotic or abiotic stress and to strengthen the structure of leaves and stems. The silicic acid formed Si (OH) 4 helps to protect the phosphorus and reduces its insolubilization, besides adsorbing water retaining it for the summer times. TERRAMAG (P) (Standard) contains more than 16% assimilable SiO2.

 


Composition

TERRAMAG (P) is the only fertilizer containing magnesium phosphate and silicic acid.

 

GUARANTEED COMPOSITION
P2O5 11,5%
S 6,5%
MgO 11%
CaO 16%
SiO2 16%
Zn 0,11%
B 0,11%
Calcium / magnesium ratio = 1,8

 


Characteristics

 

It is an amendment with controlled release elements.
It provides Phosphorus (P2O5), Calcium (CaO), Magnesium (MgO), Sulfur (S), Silicon (SiO2), Boron and Zinc.
Calcium-Magnesium ratio of 1.8 suitable for most crops.
Phosphorous assimilated by being partially acidulated phosphoric rock.
It is semi-granulated.
The elements are in assimilable form but a fraction is controlled release to decrease the leaching.
Its surface area is high.


Benefits:

It is an economical source of phosphorus from partially acidulated phosphoric rock.
Phosphorus is protected against fixation by being like magnesium phosphate and by the presence of monosilicic acid.
Supply all trace elements (Ca, Mg, S) in an assimilable form.
Supplies Boron and Zinc, generally deficient in Colombian soils.
Maintains balanced Ca-Mg ratio.
Has immediate effect due to the presence of acidified elements.
Has prolonged effect by having a fraction of its controlled release components.
• The silica gel it contains holds winter water, making it available for summer.


Recommendations:

Fertilization recommendations must be made by an agronomist as they depend on crop, soil and environmental supply. The above graphs are a first approximation.

 



Note:
This product can be added with micro elements (B, Zn, Cu, Mn, Mo) and the Ca: Mg ratio, as well as the S content, can be varied according to crop requirements by soil analysis. This is termed TERRAMAG (P) (Formulated). CONSULT US.
