Ferticell® Pro Phos™ 0-20-0, is an approved for
organic use by CDFA-OIM and WSDA as a mineral-
sourced, liquid phosphorus fertilizer, designed to
supply this key nutrient in an easily mineralizable
form.

Phosphorus management can also have a strong
influence on the environmental impact of crop
production because P is a leading contributor to
water quality degradation. (Correll, 1998).

Ferticell® uses micronization technology and algae
extract components work together to supply this
important nutrient to the plant.

Plant responses to phosphorus varies on the
availability of phosphorus in the soil and the plant’s
ability take up phosphorus which is largely due to its
root distribution relative to phosphorus location in
the soil solution. This makes a high surface area
product like ProPhos™ very beneficial to the crop.

Micronization allows ProPhos™ 0-20-0 to travel
through the soil pores and into the root zone itself.
Once there its tremendous surface area will reduce
the energy required to mineralize its phosphate
component. Its liquid provides flexibility and ease of
application.

Pro Phos™ isn’t subject to movement from the
cropping environment because it reaches its
intended destination the first time leading to
greater use efficiency.
