Mono ammonium Phosphate (MAP) with a formula NH4H2PO4 is a highly concentrated granulated nitrogen-phosphoric fertilizer, where nitrogen is represented in ammonia form. Produced via the neutralizing of phosphoric acid with ammonia. mono ammonium phosphate is used for all soil types, for ground and bed application, and for all agricultural crops and climates. Any grade of compound fertilizers can be produced with Monoammonium phosphate as input. This product is non-hygroscopic, non-dust forming and non-caking, constant granulometric composition, and water-soluble.
chemical and physical properties of mono ammonium phosphate
Applications of Mono ammonium phosphate
Monoammonium Phosphate can be used in Food, Beverage, Pharmaceutical, Health & Personal care products, Agriculture/Animal Feed/Poultry. MAP (Food Grade) is used in food as a pH control agent, buffering agent, acidulate, and nutrient source. The application of this product is in bread and dough, dry powder beverages, eggs, isotonic beverages, mineral supplements, starter cultures, and yeast cultures.
MAP is a widely used source of phosphorus (P) and nitrogen (N) in the fertilizer industry.
Monoammonium phosphate has been one of the most crucial granular fertilizers for many years. It dissolves very quickly and is water-soluble in adequately moist soil. The two basic components of the fertilizer are separated yet again to release phosphate and ammonia, plants rely on both this components for their health and steady and sustained growth.
The pH solution surrounding the granules is generally slightly acidic in nature, making mono ammonium phosphate a very desirable fertilizer in neutral to high pH soils. Ergonomic studies showed that under certain conditions there is no significant difference which exists in (P) phosphorous nutrition between variety of commercial phosphorous fertilizers under certain conditions.
Cultivators apply (MAP) in concentrated bands which are beneath soil surfaces in the proximities of the growing roots. Generally it is applied by diffusion across the field and collaborating it into the superficial of the soil via tillage. In crushed form, it is a very crucial component of suspension fertilizers. When ammonium dihydrogen phosphate is made with pure H3PO4 it gradually dissolves into a certain clear solution which gets dispersed as a foliar spray or is added to the irrigation water.P2O5 is equivalent content of highly pure mono ammonium phosphate (MAP) which is usually 61 percent.
Ammonium monophosphate can be used as a leavening agent in food such as in tomatoes, lemons, oranges, apples, cheese, and yogurt.
