Increasing phosphorus solubility by sintering igneous Dorowa phosphate
The lack of low-cost phosphorus fertilizers is a major limitation for food production on Zimbabwe's many smallholdings. A thermally fused magnesium phosphate could be manufactured from the local Dorowa phosphate rock PR but would be expensive because of the high cost of required additives and energy. This paper investigates the phosphorus solubility of mixtures of igneous Dorowa PR with
