Liquid NPK Products – Phosphites

PHOSPHONATES OR PHOSPHITES

A LOWER COST ALTERNATIVE

Commonly known as Phosphonates or Phosphites. Also known as: Potassium Phosphite, Potassium Ammonium Phosphite, Salt containing HPO32-, Salt of Phosphorous Acid.

tautomerismH3PO3UAS of America, Inc., creates Phosphonite fertilizers by combining an inorganic hydroxide with pure H3PO3 to form a 100% liquid fertilizer. Keeping in mind the importance of P in an N P K, the phosphites component is not used as readily available as a phosphate element. To use this compound solely as a fertilizer will not produce the quickest or most effective results. It is used more as an Elicitor imparting immune system (SAR-systemic acquired resistance).

UAS has developed the pHorus™ line of NPKs. pHorus™ is a specially designed high-phosphite concentrate, manufactured with a high-phosphorus base used by plants, trees, and vegetable crops to grow in a healthy state. Phosphorus is an essential element for all plant life. It makes up an important part of plant genes and is essential for molecules that carry genetic information.
