Soil fertility is the key to every successful planting season. For over 50 years, P & L Fertilizer has been in the business of manufacturing high quality 100% ortho-phosphate fertilizer...helping farmers and gardeners all over the country get the most out of their soil. Our liquid plant food can be placed directly on the seed without the risk of burning or impeding germination. Using it on our own farm, we feel that directly on the seed is the most ideal placement for fertilizer, so that the plant will not need to seek out the fertilizer. P & L ortho-phosphate solution is available immediately, making it ideal for early planting in cooler soils. With much smaller suggested rates (4-7 gallons), farmers are handling much less product than with most poly-phosphate (10-34-0) fertilizer.
