What is GAFSA BioPHOS?

GAFSA BioPHOS brings together the world’s most reactive soft rock phosphate with humic and fulvic acids derived from high grade North Dakota Leonardite mineral deposits. It starts releasing plant-available phosphate straight after application, providing a sustained release of nutrients for 3-4 years.

Are there other nutrients in GAFSA BioPHOS ?

As well as phosphate, GAFSA BioPHOS contains calcium, sulphur and magnesium. It also contains naturally occurring essential micro-nutrients including boron, cobalt, copper, iodine, manganese, selenium, sodium and zinc.

Why use GAFSA BioPHOS ?

  • Highly reactive soft rock phosphate = ideally suited for direct application
  • Fine particle size = even distribution throughout the soil to overcome low mobility of phosphate
  • High grade humic and fulvic organic acids stimulate the release of plant-available phosphate
  • Supplies both immediately available and longer-lasting phosphate = sustain release with reduced risk of phosphate lock-up
  • Stimulates soil microbial activity for improved soil health
  • Humic and fulvic acids promote chelation = increased nutrient availability and uptake

Can GAFSA BioPHOS be used if I'm an organic farmer?

Yes. GAFSA BioPHOS 0-29.5-0 powered and GAFSA BioPHOS 0-27-0 are fully approved and unrestricted. GAFSA BioPHOS 0-18-17 and 0-13-26 are Soil Association approved but are restricted and therefore require derogation.
