The product Single Super Phosphate (SSP) fertilizer is one of the phosphorus based fertilizer used for the fertilization of crops. It is used for improving the root development of plants and also for the efficient transportation of sugar around the plants.

The Single Super Phosphate (SSP) fertilizer is also used to improve the flowering process of plants. Single Super Phosphate (SSP) fertilizer is produced through a chemical reaction of Ca₃(PO₄)₂ [Rock Phosphate] + 2 H₂SO₄ [Sulfuric Acid] → Ca(H₂PO4)₂ [Monocalcium Phosphate] + 2 CaSO₄ [Gypsum].

The Single Super Phosphate (SSP) fertilizer supplies three key nutrients to plants. The nutrients are phosphorus, calcium and sulfur. These three nutrients ensure that plants are healthy. They also increase crop yield if used correctly.

Benefits of Single Superphosphate Fertilizer

The following are the benefits of the nutrients in SSP fertilizer:

Benefits of Phosphorus

  • Phosphorus is beneficial to root development. Healthy and bigger roots extract more water and nutrients from the soil; this can lead to an increase in crop yield.
  • Phosphorus improves the production of flowers and fruits in plants.
  • Phosphorus optimizes the process of nitrogen fixation in leguminous plants.
  • Phosphorus improves the process of cells development in plants.
  • Phosphorus enhances the overall health of plants.

Benefits of Calcium

  • Calcium enables the usage and transportation of other nutrients in plants.
  • Calcium protects plants from diseases and pests by making the cells and tissues of the plant to be turgid and resilient to stress.
  • Calcium also helps in root development.
  • Calcium helps in plant’s cell division.
  • Calcium enables the plants to make use of other nutrients.

Benefits of Sulfur

  • Sulfur ensures the formation of amino acids, proteins and oils. These are needed for the healthy growth of the plant.
  • It also helps in the formation of chlorophyll which is needed for photosynthesis.

How to Use Single Superphosphate Fertilizer (SSP)

  • SSP fertilizer is usually used as a starter fertilizer through basal application. In basal application, the fertilizer is spread on the soil before the planting of the crops or seeds.
  • SSP fertilizer can also be side dressed and top dressed. In side dressing, the SSP fertilizer is placed beside the plant or beside the row of plants.
  • SSP fertilizer can also be buried in holes beside the plants or the row of plants. This is the most efficient way of applying the Single Super Phosphate (SSP) fertilizer.
