Fertilizer superphosphate can also be used as a mineral supplement if no other sources of phosphorus are available. It is necessary to extract the soluble phosphorus by thoroughly mixing the superphosphate with water and allowing the slurry to stand for some time. The fluid containing the phosphorus is then poured off and can either be evaporated or included in liquid mixtures. One kilogram of superphosphate yields about 70 g of phosphorus.
