    Liquid Ammonium Phosphate 10-34-0

    Online Quote Request Form for Liquid Ammonium Phosphate 10-34-010-34-0 is a liquid ammoniated phosphate. It has 10 units of nitrogen and 34 units of phosphate and of course 0 units of potassium. It's very frequently used in a starter where it can be mixed with other components such as microbial innoculants, and some liquified sugar or molasses. It could even include some additional nitrogen.

    It's usually put near the seed or a little off to the side, we typically recommend 2 1/2 inches over and 2 1/2 inches down from the seed. That's known as 2 X 2.

    10-34-0 is phosphate that is in a polyphosphate form as opposed to orthophosphate. And what that means is that certain phosphate molecules are joined to each other. They're joined together, therefore as is, the plant doesn't immediately take it up but there has to be a chemical reaction caused by biology to separate the phosphate from itself to make it an ortho so it's all by itself.

    So take precaution with 10-34-0 because it's 100% polyphosphate and it takes microbial activity to break it apart. It's a good idea to put in a biological innoculant and a starter. It's also very good to put in a liquid sugar and then some things that stimulate the bacteria. So some things that could go in there would be a product called RL37, it's a liquid humate, and also a little bit of liquid B12, a very small dose, let's say 30 ml per acre is a good rate to use. It's just a good stimulant for bacteria.

    One other ingredient that goes very well with 10-34-0 that a lot of farmers don't choose to use (but if they do they can get some very good results) is to put in some liquid fish in addition to the 10-34-0. It's a very good addition and it pays really well. You just have to have the equipment to handle it and the patience to mess with it.

    10-34-0 is also used as a base product to make some 9-18-9, so 9-18-9 can have some 10-34-0 in it. And if it's got some in it, it won't be a clear liquid because the 10-34-0 is colored. So a lot of times the 10-34-0 provides some polyphosphates in a polyphosphate-orthophosphate mix in the 9-18-9.

    There are different grades of 10-34-0. A good grade is clear, but most of the time you get a green-colored 10-34-0 and ocassionally a black 10-34-0 which isn't a good quality. You don't want the black. Green is acceptable, but clear is of the best quality.

    10-34-0 is available in bulk semi load. We can supply approximately 4,000 gals. per semi. It would need some tank storage to be delivered to farmers.

    Liquid Fish 5-1-1

    Request Quote Liquid Fish 5-1-1 Liquid Fish 5-1-1 is excellent ocean fish that's high in nitrogen and full of trace minerals. The fish is first used for oil, so the oil is taken out of the fish but the rest of the meat and the body of the fish is then ground up and made into an emulsion. So there's a lot more protein in this fish coming from the meat than most other liquid fish that are scraps with the filet taken out.

    This is not an edible fish really, it's harvested mainly for the oil. The oil is used for human consumption and various other aspects because it's high in omega-3 oil. But what's left over is a very good fertilizer for organic production or for small-scale market gardens. The primary use we're looking at is as a high nitrogen source for organics.

    This is especially important when raising corn where we need a good nitrogen source. The nice part about this fish is the nitrogen is in the source of amino acids or proteins that are very stable. So the nitrogen in this product, unlike commercial nitrogen in fertilizers, will stick around and supply the plant throughout the whole season.

    Typical rates would be anywhere from 30 to 50 gallons (sometimes 60 gallons) per acre, depending on yield goals for corn. Small grains would take less. Wheat would be close to the corn range. Many times this would work as a complete stand alone product for corn. If you just put 60 gallons out you'll probably get a corn crop. Not ideal, but it can be very useful of a product.

    The sulfates in this liquid fish 5-1-1 help to acidify high pH soils. A lot of times soils are pushing up that 7-8 pH. Sulfates help to release that and work against the calcium, dropping the pH a little, so it's good for energy release working against the calcium.

    Liquid Fish 5-1-1 is delivered in semiload tanker lots and would need about 5,000 gallons of tank storage if we were to quote it delivered.

  • MAP 11-52-0

    MAP 11-52-0

    Online Quote Request Form for MAP-11-52-0MAP 11-52-0 is also called Monoammonium Phosphate. It has an analysis of 11 units of nitrogen, 52 units of phosphate and of course 0 units of potash. It's a lower PH phosphate fertilizer, it's an excellent dry, it has a PH similar in about the 5's.

    There're 2 versions of ammoniated phosphates for the most part. One is MAP and one is DAP. The common one is DAP--Diammonium Phosphate, which has an analysis of 18-46-0. A lot of fertilizer plants like DAP because it has quite a bit of nitrogen, so when they're blending these specific blends, maybe like a 15-15-15 or whatever, they've got an analysis that's pretty high already in nitrogen.

    But we find that DAP is decidedly inferior to MAP, first of all because it has a high PH, and it bonds with phosphate more readily than it bonds with the calcium that's in the soil, forming an insoluble tricalcium phosphate. And when that happens, then you lose the solubility of both your phophorus and your calcium. So you end up being shorter.

    The Monoammonium has much less of a problem of the phosphates tying up with the calcium. It's kind of like the Monoammonium Phosphate is a better referee, keeping the phosphates from tying up with the calcium in the soil. So whenever we recommend 11-52-0, we do not suggest substituting Diammonium with that, it's not as good.

    The other problem that you have is that Diammonium Phosphate has a PH of 8 or even a little higher, so when you have soils moving up a little bit higher in PH (and a lot of soils are moving up higher in PH), you get less of a reaction of energy with a high PH fertilizer mixed with a high PH soil. You get much better release of energy by mixing a low PH fertilizer with a high PH soil. And that's what the MAP does.

    We find that 100 lbs. of MAP applied per acre in a broadcast situation will supply the needed phosphates for 1 cropping season. And it probably will build your available phosphates a few pounds as well.

    This is used as an adjunct to a soft rock phosphate, so if you really want to rebuild and remineralize soil, you use both of these. The MAP for the crop you're growing now, and the soft rock phosphate would be used for long term soil building so that eventually you don't have to buy the MAP or the commercial fertilizer. But if your soil indicates a low level of available phosphates, it is very prudent to supply phosphates in the soluble form in order to get a good crop so you can pay for the building of the soil in the form of soft rock. So we use them in combination. If budget is an issue, then we take the soft rock out because that is very expensive on large-scale acreage, and we just use the MAP.

    You can go along year after year and whenever you're low use MAP and you'll be just fine. 100 lbs. and even up to 200 lbs. of MAP is a very small amount when you spread it out over a whole acre. It's basically like salting your food, you really don't want much, but it's amazing how just a little amount of salt makes your food taste better, it gives just enough soluble salts to improve the flavor. Well, it's the same comparison putting soluble salts out with the MAP. But again, like table salt, you don't want to overdo it and you want to have about the right amount. That right amount is anywhere between 100-200 lbs.an acre, no more than that.

    We use MAP most of the time when the soil tests show less than 150 lbs. of phosphate, we'll put either 50 or 100 lbs. out.

    MAP is the only commercial phosphate that we recommend for dry application. Also, the phosphate is in the "ortho" form. Polyphosphate is orthophosphate which means the phosphate molecules aren't connected to each other, they're all separated one from another in their molecular structure, so that when you put it out the plants can immediately pick it up and use it.

    A very good product. Some people have been very concerned that there's some problems with MAP. We haven't found or seen any problems with the use of it when it's needed.

    If you're putting fertilizers down a slot, which is not our recommendation, but if you're doing that you would typically cut your rates in half. So you would go 50 lbs. or 75 lbs., not much more than that, and that would have to be place beneath the seed about 4-5 inches so you don't burn.

    The best use for building up a soil is to broadcast your fertilizers and slightly work them in, that way when the plant roots go out to search for nutrients in between rows there're nutrients there. And so strip tillage and where you place them, you're just banding nutrients either beneath the plant or beside it only, it basically depletes the area in between the row as it becomes a poverty zone for soil. So our suggestion is to broadcast MAP along with all the commercial fertilizers. Then the possibility exists to come in aand do a side dress or something like that beside the seed row, just as a stimulant to the plants as they're getting off. And you could put some bacteria and humates with it.

    MAP is available by hopper bottoms, available in 25-26 ton semi load units. If you need a semi load and you want to check prices to compare them against your local coop, give Fertilizer Brokerage a call and we'll get you that information.

  • UAN 28% / 32%

    UAN 28% / 32% -- Request a quote from Fertilizer Brokerage today!

    UAN 28% / UAN 32%

    Online Quote Request Form for UAN 28% / UAN 32%UAN 28% and 32% are both formulations of the same thing, urea-ammonium nitrate, with a 28% nitrogen on one and a 32 % nitrogen on the other. The reason they have both forms is that 32% is how it's produced as a full concentrate and it's used more in southern climates. Then as it gets more in northern climates, especially if it's going to face a winter season, then they dilute it with water because the freezing point is less for the 28%. So the 32% more easily freezes and then it may drop off and salt up.

    28% is a very good nitrogen and a pretty clean nitrogen, something we recommend because it's basically a nitrogen that's coming out of the air. It's a better source of nitrogen than anhydrous ammonia which is very hard on soil structure, it's very hard on all sorts of biology. But the 28% is a very good nitrogen. It's very important for corn production and we normally would always mix in 5-10 lbs of sugar when we're using that because you want to add in soluble carbons to slow-release the 28%.

    One very nice formula that really goes good to make the nitrogen soil release is if you're using 10 gals. of 28% or 32%, you would add in your 5-10 lbs of dissolved sugar, then you could add in 1-2 gals of Thiosol and 1-2 gals. of ammonium sulfate and you could probably throw in a quart or two of liquid humates (RL37). That has all the components of an amino acid--nitrogen, carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, calcium, sulfates--and it really works good to hold the nitrogen throughout the season that way instead of losing it so quickly.

    28% (or 32%) by itself is going to fairly quickly be lost to the atmosphere or leeched, so the nitrogen doesn't stay around so long. But when you put in the sugars and add some of the other components it will stay around much better and work for the plant.

    Ammonium sulfate is a good product to use as a broadcast in conjunction with 28% or 32%. About 200 lbs of ammonium sulfate is pretty good and then take the rest of the nitrogen needs using 28% or 32%.

    We can offer this in brokerage in approximately 4,000 gallon semi loads. It's available basically in bulk, we don't have much opportunity to sell it in totes at this point. But it is available for those who need larger quantities. Pricing varies frequently, so you have to request a quote. It is a good product and a pretty clean product for commercial fertilizers.

    This would not be approved for organics, of course, because it's a commercial nitrogen.
