Farmers and gardeners have used phosphate-based fertilizer to soil and plants to boost local phosphorus levels. Phosphate-based fertilizer transformed many infertile soils into productive agricultural areas. Growing plants are especially vulnerable to deficient Phosphorous levels, and almost every plant needs it to maintain healthy growth. Phosphorus is obtained from fertilizer, bone metal, and rock phosphate. Rock phosphate is a widely used raw material for the manufacture of phosphate fertilizer.
