Safety Data Sheet

OVERVIEW

It is ideal for the establishment of new garden beds and top dressing of existing turf or the build up of exisiting gardens. It can also be use for broadacre application such as a top dressing agent for parks, ovals, reserves, golf courses and primary production paddocks.

As this product is finely screened, once spread and watered in, play can continue wihout interruption.

The compost component contains vital organioc carbon and nutrients whilst also adding soil moisture retention, structure and increasing root mass.

IDEAL USAGE

  • New garden beds
  • Laying new turf.

Description

Phosphorus is one of the three main nutrients plants require to thrive: phosphorus (P), nitrogen (N) and potassium (K).A plant with the proper amount of phosphorus available to it will grow more vigorously and mature earlier than plants with inadequate phosphorus.If plants are starved of phosphorus as seedlings they may not recover when phosphorus is applied later.Phosphors deficiency symptoms: stunted growth, lack of fruit or flowers, wilting and leaves may be greener or have a purple cast to them due to the photosynthetic process being affected.Peats Cultured Compost is produced from carefully selected raw materials to deliver high quality end product. Peats Cultured Compost is produced from carefully selected raw materials to deliver high quality end product. The general compost is low in phosphorus and this makes it incomplete when applied on phosphorus deficient soils.Peats Phosphor Booster has been formulated and produced to meet the crop demands for Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium in full. The phosphorus levels are increased up to 2%.
The ideal soil pH for phosphorus availability is between 6 and 7. Both acidic soils with pH below level of 5, and alkaline soil with a pH level higher than 7.3 have negative effect on phosphorus availability. The phosphorus becomes fixed in compounds plants are unable to utilize. Because phosphorus is so easily fixed in the soil, crops and pasture take up only 5–20% of phosphorus applied to the soil.With its unique formulation Peat’s phosphor booster is able to increase the phosphor availability to the plants and at the same time buffer the soil’s P bonding capacity.
 

KEY BENEFITS:

  • Complete plant nutrient supply;
  • Increase soil organic matter;
  • Help retain moisture in the soil longer;
  • Continuously release nutrients during the entire growing season;
  • Accumulate nutrients in the soil for more than one year/season;
  • Helps condition the soil and assist in the soil aeration;
  • Help sustain the biological activity in the soil and thus regular nutrient release.
