Essays on Peat, Muck, and Commercial Manures Essays on Peat, Muck, and Commercial Manures, Samuel William Johnson Library of American civilization: Author: Samuel William Johnson: Publisher: Brown & Gross, Original from: the University of Wisconsin - Madison: Digitized: Length: pages: Export Citation: BiBTeX EndNote RefMan. superphosphate or superphosphate of lime, Ca(H2PO4)2, is a compound produced by treating rock phosphate with sulfuric acid or phosphoric acid, or a mixture of the two. It is the principal carrier of phosphate, the form of phosphorus usable by plants, and is one of the world's most important fertilizers. Ordinary superphosphate contains about 20%. Manures and fertilizers; a text-book for college students and a work of reference for all interested in the scientific aspects of modern farming, (New York, The Macmillan Company, ), by H. J. Wheeler (page images at HathiTrust). Despite The Considerable Progress Made In Enhancing The Capacity Of Soils To Produce Crops Through The Use Of Manures And Fertilizers, There Are Yet A Large Number Of Ignorant Peasants In Many Asian Countries, Including India, Who Have Been Growing Crops Without Applying Adequate Amounts Of Manures And Fertilizers To Their Crop Fields And Consequently Obtaining Considerably .
Nutrient values can be assigned by using estimated “book” or average available N, P2O5 and K2O contents. However, testing manure may better indicate how animal management and other factors actually affect nutrient content. In fact, many state nutrient management programs now require manure testing as part of farm nutrient management.

A fertilizer (American English) or fertiliser (British English; see spelling differences) is any material of natural or synthetic origin (other than liming materials) that is applied to soil or to plant tissues to supply one or more plant nutrients essential to the growth of sources of fertilizer exist, both natural and industrially produced.
Superphosphate manufacture Next. The basic ingredients of superphosphate are rock phosphate and sulfuric acid. Sulfuric acid is made by converting elemental sulfur to sulfur trioxide, which, with added water, is dissolved in sulfuric acid to produce more acid. Finely ground rock phosphate and sulfuric acid are mixed in a den to produce. Analyses: Analyses needed for developing a manure application plan are total nitrogen (N), phosphate (P2O5) and potash (K2O). Laboratories usually provide these analyses plus dry matter (solids) and sometimes ammonium-N (NH4-N) for a set fee. Knowing NH4-N can be useful if this fraction makes up a large percentage of the total N in the manure. Also used are double superphosphate (% P), triple superphosphate (% P), mono-ammonium phosphate (MAP,% P), or di-ammonium phosphate (DAP, 20%P) Phosphorus often reacts rapidly with other elements such as calcium and iron in soil, and can result in less than 5% of the total P applied being taken up by plants in the year of application. Superphosphate is an artificial fertiliser, and is the most important fertiliser used in New Zealand. Farmers often shorten its name to ‘super’. Improving plant growth Most soils contain some nutrients and can support plant growth, even if this is slow. For.
