- Calphos is a great source of slow-release phosphorus and calcium. A small percentage of the nutrients are available immediately and the majority are released slowly over a period of a few years.
- When using calphos as a soil amendment, keep in mind that, for the roots to absorb the phosphorus and calcium, the soil must be acidic or have a high level of microbial activity. To accelerate the absorption process, you can mix the calphos with compost when applying. The continual application of compost over time will allow the plant roots to continually take up the nutrients from calphos.
