Therefore,  the use of phosphorus-based fertilizers is important to supplement the phosphorus elements in the soil. And among all the phosphorus-based fertilizers, phosphate fertilizer is the most widely used one. It is a kind of agrochemical that is mainly manufactured using phosphate rocks, about two-thirds of the worlds phosphate fertilizer resources are derived from phosphate rocks. The type of phosphate fertilizer that is used most often is diammonium phosphate fertilizer, it is a concentrated type of fertilizer, the percentage of phosphorus content in it is much higher than that of the normal rock phosphate fertilizer, which is directly manufactured from rocks. A much higher phosphorus content means it could enrich the soil in a much quicker and effective way than the normal rock phosphate fertilizer.
