What's the difference between superphosphate and triple super phosphate fertilizer?..

Answer / paul christy

Superphosphate, 0-20-0, is made when rock phosphate is
treated with sulfuric acid to make calcium phosphate
(0-20-0) and calcium sulphate (gypsum.) Triple
Superphosphate, 0-46-0, is made by treating rock phosphate
with phosphoric acid. Triple Superphosphate has a much
higher phosphate content, as indicated by the 0-46-0
indicating 46% phosphate content. The benefit of the Triple
is that less needs to be used. However it costs more and
there is some evidence to suggest it ties up available
micronutrients (zinc, manganese, iron)in the soil requiring
the grower to supplement them.

What's the difference between superphosphate and triple super phosphate fertilizer?..

Answer / vishesh velani

The single super phosphate is treated with the sulfuric acid to form the calcium phosphate and the triple super phosphate is treated with the H3PO4 to make the phosphuric acid .
