Phosphorus Use Efficiency Technology

As a grower, you have a healthy dose of common sense to go along with your business sense. You don’t buy things you don’t need, and you want to make sure you get what you pay for. Unfortunately, with most Phosphorus applications, that’s exactly what’s not happening. Of the Phosphorus that you purchase and put down, typically only about a quarter of it ends up being accessible to your crops that season. It’s like ordering a filet and being served a hot dog. AVAIL® T5 Phosphorus Fertilizer Enhancer makes Phosphorus uptake more efficient for your plants, resulting in up to 45% more Phosphorus being accessible to crops. This means a higher yield and a greater ROI. Common sense and good business practice — two things you already know well.

When does it make sense to use a Phosphorus stabilizer?

Wondering what a soil test can tell you? The AVAIL T5 Placement Chart below makes it simple to identify the optimal conditions for the most profitable Phosphorus application.

Optimize phosphorus performance for a stronger, earlier start

AVAIL® T5 Phosphorus Fertilizer Enhancer uses an all-new patented polymer technology to reduce the fixation of applied Phosphorus, keeping more available for plant uptake, speeding early growth, and improving crop health and yield potential.

Based on our all-new T5 polymer technology, AVAIL T5 Phosphorus Fertilizer Enhancer offers better performance, handling, storage and ease-of-use. In addition, AVAIL technology makes more of your applied Phosphorus available to your plants, regardless of source or timing, increasing Phosphorus efficiency uptake in the plant.

Get more from your Phosphorus fertilizer investment

Positively charged elements in the soil like calcium, magnesium, aluminum and iron can cause Phosphorus to become fixed in the soil. But AVAIL T5 reacts with these ions, shielding Phosphorus fertilizer from fixation. More available Phosphorus can lead to more robust root systems, boosting early-season performance, plant stress tolerance, crop quality and yield potential.

Phosphorus use efficiency benefits more than just your farm. More readily available and soluble phosphorus in the soil allows for improved plant root interception and efficient plant nutrient uptake. This leads to less Phosphorus buildup in the soil and less loss to creeks, rivers, lakes, and bays. These benefits make AVAIL T5 a critical part of your 4R Nutrient Stewardship best management practices (BMPs).

Application Guidelines

Always read and follow label instructions and restrictions before use.

Soil Types and Crops

AVAIL T5 is designed to reduce fixation of phosphate fertilizers in any soil type and to be used with any crop where phosphate fertilizer is deemed by best management practices to be useful for plant growth and development. If you expect to get a response from your Phosphorus fertilizer investment, AVAIL T5 will improve the efficiency of your Phosphorus fertilizer application.
