MAP is preferred to DAP at planting in those situations where too much nitrogen may affect
germination, emergence and early seedling root development. MAP is commonly used where the
planting fertiliser is placed in direct contact with the seed of winter cereals sown at narrow row
spacings, e.g. wheat and barley, and in cotton.
MAP is also less hygroscopic than DAP, on account of its lower nitrogen content, making it less
prone to setting in storage. This makes it more suitable to place in silos for on farm storage, though
the time that it is stored in this way (in silos) should be kept to a minimum.
MAP and DAP are ideal planting fertilisers, their attributes including:
• Concentrated high analysis - minimising delays and stoppages to fill equipment;
• Fully granulated – suiting today’s modern precision application equipment;
• Phosphorus in forms readily available for plant uptake, stimulating root development
and early growth;
• They supply starter nitrogen as well as phosphorus. Furthermore, the combination
of positively charged ammonium ions (NH4+) with negatively charged phosphate
ions (H2PO4-and HPO42-) promotes uptake of both nitrogen and phosphorus.
