9 reasons why you should be thinking about Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate®

No run-off into waterways



Long standing formula

Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® has been made according to a carefully managed process for over 50 years, proven quality and supply.




Neutral pH

With a near neutral pH of 6.5–7.0, Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® maintains a healthy, balanced soil.






Non-water Soluble

Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® is non-water soluble so it protects waterways by substantially reducing any phosphate run-off. The goodness stays where it's needed for longer.



Plant available

The phosphate in Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® is fully plant available as the plant needs it, so you're not going to experience the ‘highs and lows' of pasture production, making pasture management easier.




Better pasture utilisation

Say goodbye to rank pastures like browntop and ratstail, and increase your pasture utilisation for easier grazing management and happier stock.



Less phosphate input

You're using less phosphate than the old model of farming would've recommended. That's cost-effective for your pocket and the environment.




Improved self-sufficiency

Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® favours earthworms. That means improved soil recycling and less reliance on costly nutrients.



Better national support

With a Hatuma Field Representative only a phone call away, you're getting indepth knowledge and product support nationwide.




Clover growth:
less input reliance

AgResearch tests have shown that Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® has a positive effect on rhizobium bacteria. Farmers using Hatuma Dicalcic Phosphate® report improved and sustained clover growth.
