an alkaline phosphorus fertilizer. It is a by-product of the production of steel from phosphorus rich pig iron. Basic slag is a dark powder that is insoluble in water and does not cake. It contains about 14 % P205 in citrate-soluble form. Basic slag is most suitable for use on acid soils as a base fertilizer.
