Phyto-Fos 0-22-18, is a new source
of phosphorous that can make a significant yield and quality difference in
turf, citrus, ornamentals and row crops. Effective at much lower rates than
traditional phosphate sources, Phyto-Fos plays a critical role in plant growth
Stress resistance, vigor, yields and quality are all
affected by phosphorous availability. Phyto-Fos
moves quickly and systematically throughout the plant, getting phosphorous into
areas where it's needed the most during critical stress periods that occur in a
plant's natural life cycle, such as:
- Root formation,
- Seedling growth
- Bud formation
- Fruit set and development
does Phyto-Fos work?
Phosphorous is known as the "energy
element". It plays a critical role in many important functions in plant growth,
reproduction and metabolism.
Phyto-Fos is based upon
phosphorous acid, unlike the phosphoric acid of the traditional
The phosphorous in Phyto-Fos is in the form of "PO3" rather than
"PO4", which is found in traditional fertilizers. It is
theorized it takes less energy by the plant to utilize PO3 than PO4. Therefore, Phyto-Fos
phosphorous is considered to be much more active, efficient and effective.
Phosphorous During Critical Periods
At critical times during a plant's
life cycle, phosphorous demand by the plant may exceed the amount the root can
supply. That's why it's so important your crop, whether turf, citrus or
ornamentals, gets plenty of phosphorous during critical bud and root
initiation, growth and reproduction stages.
Because Phyto-Fos is highly
systemic and mobile within the plant, it gives an immediate surge of
phosphorous to areas that need it the most. Phyto-Fos
