Abstract

Abstract

White phosphorus dissolved in liquid ammonia yields an insoluble, black, phosphorus-rich material. In alkaline and limed acid soils, this substance did not inhibit germination or seedling development of sorghum (Sorghum vulgare pers.) but supplied little or no phosphate to tomatoes (Lycopersicum esculentum, var. ‘manapal’). White phosphorus injected into the ammonia zone was available to the tomatoes as phosphates.
