Phosphorus is primarily mined as phosphate rock, a rock found all across the globe. It requires about a ton of phosphate to produce significant quantity of grains.However, it depends upon on the crop type, soil conditions and fertilizing efficiency. Phosphorus is one of the most common element found on earth. It is important for the construction of bones, cell membranes and DNA, formation in human beings. It is important for food production as it is used in commercial fertilizer. It cannot be produced or destroyed as it has no external substitute or synthetic version available in the market.
