Improvements in processes for making double superphosphate and an increasing realization of its advantages have greatly increased its use in recent years.

Most often it is used in the fall, at least - to make priposadochnogo and root fertilizing. The dose recommended for use, must be split into two, or the concentrate may simply burn the roots.
