How Do Phosphate Fertilizers Work?

Phosphate fertilizers replace phosphate, one of the top 3 nutrients of the total 17 nutrients scientists have identified as essential to good plant growth. Phosphates are lost from soil through repeated harvesting activities. The addition of phosphate fertilizer helps produce healthy, dark green plants and enhances transfer of energy within cells, which stimulates early plant growth and maturity.


Phosphate fertilizers, like most chemical fertilizers, are popular because they work well, are easy to obtain (according to the US Geological Survey, the United States is the world’s largest producer of phosphate rock, which is used to manufacture phosphatic fertilizer) and are relatively simple to apply. That simplicity has its drawbacks…….


Despite the benefits phosphate fertilizer offers growing plants, its mismanagement causes problems when it enters lakes and rivers. Excessive phosphorus spurs algal growth that is dangerous to fish populations. Its relative ease of application and availability often makes it a first choice of growers, which contributes to its overuse.

What Are Phosphate Fertilizer Boosters?

Phosphate boosters help plants more efficiently process applied phosphates while still allowing growers to achieve exceptional crop growth and yields. This translates to reduced costs for the grower and reduced impacts on health and the environment.

How BioWash Helps You

BioWash is exceptionally effective at helping plants better process nutrients found in fertilizers through a process known as Cationic Exchange (CEC). This process actually increases the root size of plants, improving the efficiency by which the roots deliver the fertilizer’s nutrients to its leaves. In addition, BioWash has been found to increase BRIX (sugar content) in plants. This improves the photosynthesis effect of the sun’s rays and reduces insect damage. BioWash is also inexpensive to apply and, because it is non-carcinogenic and 100% biodegradable, it is kind to humans, animals and the environment. Less fertilizer, lower costs, better results and helping people and the environment….. How do you beat that?
