Triple superphosphate (TSP)

Product description

Triple super phosphate (TSP) is the most highly concentrated existing phosphate fertilizer. It is produced by adding phosphoric acid to rock phosphate, yielding essentially water-soluble monocalcium phosphate without presence of calcium phosphate. TSP contains about 2.5 more phosphate than the single super phosphate (17 to 23% of phosphorus, or 44 to 52% of P2O5). Due to the high concentration of phosphorus, TSP has been widely used in the manufacture of high assay fertilizer compounds. Triple super phosphate, also known as concentrated super phosphate, contains 45 to 50% mono calcium or water-soluble sulphate and 17 to 20% lime. This concentrated form of the fertilizer is easier and cheaper to be transported, stored and to be used in comparison to the liquid form. If the Triple super phosphate is used as fertilizer, the yield of short-term crops as cereals, potatoes and some vegetables is higher. Due to this fertilizer the root system builds steadily, which allows the plant to keep good standing during the growth.

The total nutrient content is lower than the one of the ammonium phosphate; the acid nature affects the quality during storage; it is not suitable to be used together with the urea, because it affects its quality. TSP in granules is the preferred shape for direct use in the soil, non-granulated shape is more convenient to be used in mixed fertilizers.
