During this time of unprecedented uncertainty, Nachurs Alpine Solutions is actively implementing our plan to continue to provide quality chemical products while protecting the health and safety of our employees and customers. Utilizing our 7 plants that are strategically placed throughout the U.S. and Canada, we will make every effort to continue to deliver products to our valued customers in a timely fashion. All office administration staff will be working from home to help protect our essential staff working at our plants. Please follow our website at www.nachurs-alpine.com for further updates.

Plant Uptake of the Phosphate

Plants absorb P as Orthophosphate ions H2P04– and HP042- Polyphosphates are a chain link molecule of orthos and are not available to the plant until conversion.

Polyphosphate Production

Super Phosphoric Acid (SPA) combined with NH3

Processed through a Pipe Reactor = 10-34-0 or 11-37-0

  • Chain Link Molecule of Orthophosphate
  • Unavailable to the plant in that form
  • Must convert to orthophosphate
  • Time and Temperature

ALPINE Production

White and Green Orthophosphate acid, KOH, Aqua Ammonia, APP and water

  • Chemically combined to form MKP, DKP, MAP and DAP
  • Hot mix reaction – Chemically combining the raw materials
  • MKP – very soluble and highly available
  • Neutralized to virtually non-corrosive state.






(11.7 lbs/gal) x (0.34) = 3.978 lbs P2O5/gallon
times 5 gal/AEquals 19.89 lbs P2O5/A
(11.1 lbs/gal) x (0.24) = 2.664 lbs P2O5/gallon
times 5 gal/AEquals 13.32 lbs P2O5/A
30% Ortho-phosphate
5.97 lbs/A in the Ortho-phosphate form
80% Ortho-phosphate
10.66 lbs/A in the Ortho-phosphate form
70% Poly-phosphate
13.92 lbs/A in the Poly-phosphate form

Even after 30 days, with a soil pH of 7.2, 50% of the phosphate will still
be in the Poly-Phosphate form, being unavailable for the crop to utilize.
TVA research.- high impurities
