Significant amounts of phosphate fertilizer become bound to soil particles and other elements. That means they are unvailable for crop use. JumpStart® is based on the naturally-occurring fungus Penicillium bilaiae. This fungus grows along plant roots and releases bound mineral forms of soil and fertilizer phosphate. That makes it more readily available for the plant to use.
