Phos-Life

Plant available calcium and phosphate, together in a single, high-analysis product, is not normally a possibility. The non-ionic nature
of MMS products allows this highly productive combination.


A high-analysis source of micronised guano combined in a free-flowing suspension with fulvic acid and soil-life metabolites. Calcium and phosphate are the two principle elements involved in photosynthesis and plant sugar production but it is not normally possible to combine them in a single fertiliser due to their incompatibility. Phos-Life™ represents a rare fusion of these two elements in a plant available form.

Benefits

  • A rare and unique source of organic liquid phosphate free of heavy metals
  • Also contains high levels of calcium. Calcium and phosphate are the governors of plant health and high brix levels.
  • Soluble calcium and phosphate are normally incompatible in ionic form, but not in micronised, colloidal form.
  • The combination of plant-available calcium and phosphate generates tremendous energy in the soil.
  • Phos-Life™ also contains a rich lode of trace elements, including good levels of zinc.
  • The mineral component can become plant available within days.
  • Far more compatible with other inputs compared with MAP/DAP or calcium nitrate.
  • Particularly applicable when nitrogen or phosphates are not required in conjunction with calcium, ie. MAP, DAP, calcium nitrate, etc.
  • Also contains biological metabolites derived from: Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus megaterium, Azotobacter vinelandii , Pseudomonas fluorescens, Pseudomonas putida, Rhizobium japonicum, Pseudomonas stutzeri, Rhizobium leguminosarum, Streptomyces albidoflavus, Streptomyces cellulosae, Chaetomium globosum, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Trichoderma lignorum.
  • Easy convenient application (based upon the fact that limestone contains less than 5 Kg of soluble calcium per tonne).
  • Biological Farmers of Australia (B.F.A.) Registered Product 456AI.

Application Rates

Foliar:

  • Broadacre: 2-5 litres per hectare.
  • Horticulture: 4-10 litres per hectare.

Fertigation or Boomspray onto the soil:

  • 15-40 litres per hectare.

Liquid Injection at planting:

  • 10-20 litres per hectare.

Dilution rate:

A minimum of 1:50

Miscellaneous

  • Shake or stir well before use. Spray tank will require constant agitation to prevent solids from settling out.
  • MMS products involve tiny 5 micron particles which are far too small in themselves to clog filters. However, if they are inadequately diluted or agitated before application, there is a possibility of problems with spray equipment.
  • MMS products should be slowly applied to the spray tank to avoid problems.
  • MMS products are very heavy and every care should be taken when handling these materials to avoid back injury. MMS products will leave a visible residue on leaves and fruit when used as a foliar. Soil applications may be preferable if this residue is commercially inappropriate.
  • Compatible with all other MMS products and most other liquid fertilisers, but always perform a "jar test" to check for precipitation.
