    Its mostly phosphate. Not legal now where I am. Not ideal for grass. But it might be suitable for a hydroseed mixture. We used a little of it dissolved as a phosphate source about 1977 at TruGreen. discontinued shortly after. Maybe a corn farmer could use it.

    The only good place for that analysis is in a hydroseed tank. Most lawn and ornamental sites never need that much P. Too much P can cause headaches with micronutrient availability and pollution of waterways.
