Hard Minjingu Phosphate Rock: an Alternative P Source for

The phosphate rock (PR) deposit at Minjingu in northern Tanzania consists of two forms, locally called hard Minjingu phosphate rock, MPR (4.8 × 106 Mg with 10.6% P) and soft MPR (3.3 × 106 Mg with 13.3% P). Extensive chemical and instrumental analyses have shown that the two MPRs differ mainly in consistency, while their reactivities are comparable. Soft MPR in direct application has been
