In this regard, what is Triple Super Phosphate used for?
Triple Super Phosphate (TSP) Fertilizer. Triple Super Phosphate (TSP) fertilizer is composed of inorganic nutrients that are used to restore soil components essential for farming. TSP is the abbreviation of triple superphosphate with chemical formula of Ca(H2PO4). The concentration of P2O5 (PHOSPHATE) is around 44-46%.
On a moist soil superphosphate releases most of its soluble P in 24 – 36 hours and much of the free Phosphorus becomes immobilised by being fixed by either aluminium or iron (dissolved from the soil minerals by the product's acidity) The resulting products are insoluble minerals including the Aluminium phosphate
