BlueGold® Calcium Phosphate has a massive microbial profile. Soft Rock Phosphate should not be confused with Hard Rock Phosphate, which is treated with acids and caustic chemicals.
BlueGold® Calcium-Phosphate also called Soft Rock Phosphate or Colloidal Phosphate. It is the soft clay-like material that lies between the various layers of Hard Rock Phosphate and is an excellent source of Phosphate and Calcium (Cal-King, C4) for your plants. Soft Rock Phosphate should not be confused with Hard Rock Phosphate. Hard Rock is also known as Tri-Calcium Phosphate. It is often treated with Sulfuric Acid to produce Super Phosphate, reducing the Phosphate to a Water-Soluble form with caustic chemical additions to the detriment of structure and microbial colonies. Soft Rock Phosphate is washed off and accumulated in settling ponds during the mining process. The Phosphate source is completely natural and is, in fact, a genuinely remarkable fertilizer with a massive CFU/g microbial profile. Although both products contain Calcium and Phosphate, the nutrients in Soft Rock Phosphate are more readily available for your plants to use.
The King of Minerals™ in your soil is Phosphate. No mineral uptakes without available Phosphate. The Queen of Minerals™ in your soil is Calcium. Phosphate does not move or uptake without Calcium (Cal-King, C4). Soft Rock Phosphate is a quick-acting source of Phosphorous already in a Phosphate Calcium blend. Raw Phosphate minerals are tightly bound and require a slightly acidic soil (6.4 pH) and beneficial microbial activity to move properly in soil strata and uptake into plants. To achieve this more quickly rather than letting nature take its course, you can compost your raw minerals or use BlueGold® Super Phos-23, which is a mechanically micronized Soft Rock Phosphate combined with our BlueGold® Base Blend Wetting Agent for enhanced penetration.
Natural Phosphate stays in the soil where it is put and moves very little. All movement is achieved through microbial activity (a major deficient coast to coast in the United States) and through organic matter, the throttle for water (water is the carrier of many things). Unlike chemically processed Hard Rock Phosphate, Soft Rock Phosphate is insoluble in water. It will not leach away and therefore is long-lasting. However, because there is a microbial and organic matter problem in almost all farms, the use of a Wetting Agent (BlueGold® Base Blend) is instrumental in moving Phosphate in the soil by diffusion. The only alternative is too deep plow/till the soil, which only further injures microbial activity as anaerobic bacteria are flipped on top (into the anaerobic environment), and the aerobic bacteria is flipped to the bottom (into an anaerobic environment).
BlueGold® Calcium-Phosphate (Injectable) is an additional big gun in the arsenal along with our super-concentrated BlueGold® Super Phos-23 in the Nutrient War that rages in every field. You only have a short window in a Vegetative State to get the King of Minerals™ (Phosphate) and Queen of Minerals™ (Calcium) sitting pretty on their sap PPM thrones. Our BlueGold® Calcium-Phosphate (Soft Rock Phosphate) is designed for all field and cross-dressing plants.
Unfortunately, Aluminum is rarely tested for by companies. Consultants, agronomists, soil ‘doctors,’ fertilizer companies, co-ops, salespeople are feeding this dangerous excess, and the farmer is paying the price both literally and figuratively. Your Aluminum PPM should be no more than 0.10 PPM. We will accept 1 PPM, MAX. Like the human body, Aluminum is one of the worst excesses you can have in your soil and sap. Aluminum excess will cause fruit, petal, and flower abortion, and it will also stunt your Calcium uptake. A tree, bush, or crop will not hold hardly any of its fruit if it even makes it out of the vegetative growth stage. Peach leaf curl is an evident sign of an Aluminum excess. It’s a nasty excess, but we can correct it on our BlueGold® program.
BlueGold® Calcium Phosphate (Injectable and Raw) should only be applied in accordance with an Apical sap/soil analysis. Results should dictate ongoing application rates. Ask us how to qualify for our Eden Guaranteed Grow Program.
