We have upgraded MPOB F1 and MPOB F1 Xtra K compound fertilizers by using Bayovar Rock Phosphate fertilizer as the phosphate source.
What is Bayovar Rock Phosphate? You can read more about this high reactive rock phosphate fertilizer by clicking this links:
An independent research trial over a 5-year period has shown that using high reactive rock phosphate fertilizer such as Bayovar Rock Phosphate can improve oil palm yield by up to 11% when compared with using medium reactive rock phosphate.
Another research paper has also compared the effectiveness of high reactive rock phosphate fertilizer against low reactive rock phosphate fertilizer applied in young oil palms. You can follow this link to download the paper found in Google Scholar.
Companies such as Kuala Lumpur Kepong Bhd, Boustead Plantations, Genting Plantations, Tradewinds Plantation and Felda Global Ventures are already applying Bayovar Rock Phosphate fertilizer as straight application in their oil palm plantations.
No other compound fertilizer in Malaysia, if not South East Asia, uses highly reactive rock phosphate fertilizer that has citric solubility of up to 13.5% as the phosphate source.
By introducing Bayovar Rock Phosphate into our MPOB F1 compound fertilizer, we want to help our customers to boost their crop production and achieve even higher oil palm yield.
