Active P 0-18-6: A liquid plant food designed to quickly boost plant growth and root proliferation by increasing (and maintaining) phosphorus availability in the soil solution. Active P utilizes Organo Guard Technology to enhance and maintain nutrient availability.
Application: Apply Active P at 2.0 - 4 oz /1000 ft2 (56 - 112 ml / 100m2) in a minimum of 1.5 gallons (5.7L) / 1000 ft2 (65 gallons/acre) monthly (or at lighter rates more often).
For best results Active P should be watered-in (0.25 inches) after application.
Phosphorus is one of the most difficult elements to apply (as a fertilizer) to the soil and have it remain available since it tends to react with calcium and magnesium (and other elements) already present in the soil solution. Active P utilizes organo guard technology to reduce soil-reaction (tie-up) of phosphate ions thus enhancing soil mobility & extending availability. Organo Guard Technology also reduces the effects of temperature on nutrient availability (warm or cold) making Active P an excellent choice all season long (especially during early-spring, hot-summer and late-fall conditions).

THP Co. Organo Guard products deliver soil-applied nutrients that delay the chemical fixation reactions in the soil between phosphorus, potassium and sulfur in alkaline or acid soils. The patented chemistry allows for phosphorus, potassium and sulphur to enter and stay available for longer periods in the soil solution. Local trials have shown 16-18 weeks of availability in soil solution.
Compatibility Statement: Active P can be tank-mixed with Active Enhance and most wetting agents but should NOT be mixed with ammonium thiosulphate or potassium thiosulphate.
