Adepetu ( persional Comunication) and Mokwunye () stated that African soils and indeed Nigerian soils are deficient in phosphorus. The Institute for Natural Resources in Africa of the United Nations University, Ghana is presently studying the Lome (Togo) rock phosphate to solve the problem of phosphorus deficiency in Africa soils. In Uganda, unreactive Sukulu phosphate rock concentrate and Sukulu raw phosphate mixed and compacted with TSP at a ratio (with 5% urea as binder) had higher citrate solubilities of P and dry matter yields than partially acidulated Sukulu PRs (Sukulu PAPR), acidulated with the same ratio (Butegwa et al. ).

The use of phosphate rocks as a source of P for crops in different soils and growing environments has been documented (Hammond et al., ; Bolan et al., ; Buresh et al., ). Another important consideration in the use of phosphate rocks is that they have a liming potential due to the release of calcium, which they supply to the soil. This book presents the papers of the symposium: Innovations as key to the green revolution in Africa: exploring the scientific facts (Arusha, September ). Symposium organized by the African Network for Soil Biology and Fertility (AfNet) in collaboration with the Soil Fertility Consortium for Southern Africa (SOFECSA)--P. vi.

Phosphate fertilizers are produced from rock phosphate (RP), a natural non-renewable resource. About 80% of the RP mined annually is used for fertilizer production and, considering the current level of consumption, it is expected that reserves will vanish in three centuries time [2,4].The possibility of exhaustion of this resource may compromise global food production [].

Abstract. Two phosphate rocks, one from Pesca (Colombia) and the other from Togo, were acidulated to various degrees with H 2 SO 4 and H 3 PO 4 for evaluation in varying granule size ranges. Products acidulated with H 2 SO 4 were also prepared using different drying temperatures.

Phosphorus availability was measured by dry-matter yield and P uptake in greenhouse experiments with maize. Matam phosphate rock (PR) from Senegal, Tilemsi PR from Mali and Tahoua PR from Niger which are medium reactive were found to be suitable for direct application while partial acidulation (50% with sulfuric acid) of the less reactive phosphate rocks resulted in products with similar agronomic effectiveness as commercial superphosphates.

The results of five years of collaborative field trials at Samaru, Nigeria on nitrogen, phosphorus, sulphur and potassium fertilizers showed that all these nutrients are needed in the soils. While confirming the widespread deficiencies of N and P, the trials also showed that only moderate amounts of N and P are required to overcome these deficiencies and satisfy crop needs.

Nitrogen. This review discusses and summarizes the latest reports regarding the agronomic utilization and potential environmental effects of different types of phosphate (P) fertilizers that vary in solubility.

The agronomic effectiveness of P fertilizer can be influenced by the following factors: (1) water and citrate solubility; (2) chemical composition of solid water-soluble P (WSP) fertilizers; (3.

Agronomic and environmental aspects of phosphate fertilizers varying in source and solubility: An update review Article (PDF Available) in Nutrient Cycling in Agroecosystems 89(2) March. Four sources of phosphatic (P) fertilizers namely, triple superphosphate (TSP), Morocco rock phosphate (MORP), partially acidulated phosphate rock (PAPR) and Mussoorie rock phosphate (MRP) were used.

Extensive research on the agronomic potential and actual effectiveness of phosphate rocks (PRs) as sources of phosphorus has been carried out in Africa, Asia, Latin America and elsewhere.

A wealth of information is available, but it is scattered among meeting proceedings, technical reports and scientific and other publications.

This bulletin gives comprehensive coverage of the key topics. The use of finely ground phosphate rocks (PRs) as directly applied P fertilizers in tropical farming systems is a cheaper alternative to acidulated, water-soluble P products.

Ahiabor, M. Fosu, E. Atsu, I. Tibo, I. Sumaila. There is a need to identify potential phosphate rock sources to supply phosphorus (P) for crop growth and sustain food production. Physico-chemical characteristics of phosphate rocks from two Nigerian deposits were evaluated to determine their suitability for processing or direct application as P fertilizer.

Physical properties such as textural. Recent research in Niger indicates that high-quality rock phosphate from Tahoua, even when partially acidulated, would only be competitive with imported super-simple phosphate if supplied to farmers at approximately 25% of the price of imported super-simple phosphate (Jomini, ).

In contrast, the behavior of P in mangosteen shell biochar more closely resembles partially acidulated rock phosphate [30,32], where only some P is readily soluble. In general, rock phosphates and partially acidulated rock phosphates are less effective fertilizers than water soluble fertilizers such as superphosphate [30,32].

The high cost of soluble phosphate fertilizer such as single or triple super phosphate has generated considerable interest in the utilization of rock phosphate .Influence of phosphate rock on aluminium dynamic in the rhizosphere of maize grown in acid soils.
