    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.

    Potassium Sulfate 0-0-50

    Fertilizer Brokerate Online Quote Request Form for Potassium Sulfate 0-0-50Potassium Sulfate is a very important product. It's used to supply potassium. Conventional agriculture, for the most part, supplies potassium with a muriate of potash or what's called 0-0-60. We don't handle that because it has chlorides. It's potassium chloride which is very detrimental to soil biology.

    But potassium sulfate provides not only 50 units of potassium, it also has 17 units of sulfur, so when you add that up, you've actually got a lot more fertilizer for what you're paying for. It has a lot more energy than the potassium chloride and what we find is that 100 lbs. of potassium sulfate will be sufficient to provide the potassium for a whole year when the potassium's quite low.

    For those concerned about their budget in regards to the cost difference between 0-0-60 vs. 0-0-50, what we suggest is to take the same amount of budget (dollars per acre) that would normally be spent with 0-0-60 and put it into the potassium sulfate 0-0-50. You'll get less product, but you'll get a better product that provides better effect for the soil.

    Potassium can also be supplied with compost and manure, so it shouldn't be put on unless you know that you do need potassium.

    At this point potassium prices have remained pretty high globally, and potassium sulfate is no exception. For that reason, it really is important to see if you truly need it before putting it on. A soil test would be recommended.

    One of the benefits of potassium sulfate is that it's not an extremely high pH fertilizer product. Potassium chloride, on the other hand, is quite a bit higher in pH and has the tendency when used over time to push the pH high and that can be misleading for people that look at pH and then don't put any calcium or limestone down. Potassium sulfate, because of the sulfate actually, will not push the soil pH. It's more of a neutral pH, so it's quite superior just from the aspect of the pH.

    Some crops are very potassium-loving, so we would use a little higher rate than 100 lbs. per acre. Some of the things that come to mind include potatoes and pumpkins. Those really use a lot more potassium, so we would go up to 200, sometimes even 400 lbs. of potassium sulfate depending on what the soil condition is what crop is being used.

    A lot of soils, especially smaller market gardens, don't need it. But a lot of the larger scale agricultural operations find a need for potassium sulfate. They show up as being short.

    International Ag Labs is offering through the brokerage to get potassium sulfate in bulk hopper bottoms, also in tote bags. We have a potassium sulfate that is approved for organics and we have one whose binding agent is not approved, but the product is a very clean natural product from the earth. Se we can supply 0-0-50 for organic production and for those who are biological farmers it doesn't matter. If you want a cheaper price, we can supply that as well without the organics label.
