Langfos – 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 terrestial 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.

Arctic and subtropical climatic conditions must have alterated with storms, floods and droughts. Fluctuation in temperature and the bottom of the sea (over 120m) over the last 20 million years are the main causes of these rather drastic changes.


Langfos (P) 80-100 g/kg


Under the Act 36 of 1947 Langfos is registered as Raw Phosphate and under the name Langebaan Raw Phosphate, as a Group 2 Fertilizer.
Like any other fertilizer, its quality is controlled regularly.
Reg. Nr: B4038 Organic.


Langfos contains:


Phosporus
The total phosphorus content amounts to 8-10% P - expressed as tri-calcium phosphate - 63% of the product is in this form. By repeated extraction all of it is soluble in 2% citric acid. As an indication of the immediately available fraction, the first extraction dissolves 5% P.

Calcium
Langfos contains 20% of calcium. Because of the linkage of phosphorus with calcium, its neutralising effect increases by the amount of phosphorus that becomes available and is taken up. The remainder of calcium is in the form of carbonates and silicates.

Micro-elements
With the exception of cobalt (Co) which is more important to animals, Langfos provides essential iron (Fe), sulphur (S), magnesium (Mg), molybdenum (Mo) and zinc (Zn). All of them contribute in supplementing soil reserves where Langfos is a regular part of the fertilisation programme.


Cost advantage:


In spite of its high quality, Langfos – delivered to your farm – costs less per ton than any other phosphatic fertilizer.
