Description & Benefits

Natural Origins
Over the years sedimentation from cold mineral-rich fish waters along the West Coast of the Cape has formed valuable deposits which became further enriched by fossil marine and terrestrial animals who contributed threefold to that unique now shallowly covered phosphate occurrence as it is mined today. Altogether 300 different species of prehistoric animals and a number of plants have been identified so far.

As Langfos is not water-soluble, it’s a slow-release product which releases phosphate to the plants over many years assisting the farmer to build up healthy lands. It enriches the soil with trace elements and stimulates root growth and helps with photosynthesis in all plants.

Earthworms and Langfos
Very recently earthworms were fed Langfos along with other organic food. There was 20kg of Langfos fed to 8000 earthworms over a period of 8 weeks. The manure was analyzed and there was a significant increase in the phosphate content. The Bemlab analysis below shows the differences. Samples 1 and 2 were earthworm manure where Langfos was fed. This will result in when earthworms are present in soil and Langfos is administered, it will further enrich the soil and increase the P %.
Trace elements in Langfos
Almost all natural trace elements are present in Langfos and as Langfos is an organic phosphate, it is registered as such with the Department of Agriculture as a Fertilizer Group 2 Reg B4038.
Aluminium toxic soils
Langfos has the unique property as to when agricultural soils are contaminated with toxic aluminium, especially in KZN (coastal), North West and Eastern Cape (coastal areas), it restores the soil so that it releases more phosphorus for root development. In toxic aluminium soils chemical phosphates cannot fully work, but after Langfos is applied broadcast and chemical phosphate are used to plant the two phosphates combine to form a tri-phosphate.



General recommendations for usage
Langfos can be applied according to need of soil (P) analysis. Langfos will never cause a problem if too much is applied. Recommendations can range from 100kg to 1500kg per hectare. Consult one of our agents in this regard.
Langfos and ammonium sulphate nitrogen is a very good combination, which is further improved if mixed with any organic fertilizer.
