An Effective Organic Phosphate Fertilizer

Alfalfa is a profitable crop for organic farms that are looking to create a diverse ecosystem when planting multiple crops in the same place. Since alfalfa is a perennial plant with deep roots, it uses water stored in the soil below the root zone of annual crops. Alfalfa does have its drawbacks; it is a heavy consumer of soil nutrients, which is why an organic fertilizer is necessary for maintaining a balanced soil ecosystem. Through extensive research and testing, our agronomist discovered that our organic fertilizer works best in acidic soils but can be just as effective in basic soils when combined with sulfur and humate.

Methods of Fertilizing Alfalfa Crops

Phosphorus is a vital soil nutrient that helps plants, like alfalfa, strengthen their roots. Given that alfalfa crops tend to absorb much of the nutrients in their soil, it is beneficial to use a phosphate fertilizer to make sure that your soil has enough nutrients for viable crop yields. Given the nature of how it is grown, alfalfa fertilizers are most effective when using a broadcasting approach. Since alfalfa demands a large presence of phosphorus in its soil, it is best to implement a split fertilization procedure to keep it happy and healthy throughout the growing seasons.
