What is COMPALOX phosphorus (P) buffer?
COMPALOX® is an activated aluminium oxide, which has a very high affinity for P adsorption and desorption. COMPALOX® also adsorbs and desorbs other nutrients (cations and anions) as well as other polar compounds (e.g. organic acids).
Using a phosphorus P buffer technique in plant production
Incorporation of COMPALOX® P buffers into the growth substrate can be used as a technique to maintain predetermined and stable P concentrations in the growth substrate. This is of interest for different purposes, for example:
