Dr. Green publishes article on bioactive phosphorus
Dr. Steven Green, Soil and Water Conservation, recently published an article, "Bioactive phosphorus loss in simulated runoff from a phosphorus-enriched soil under two forage management systems," in the journal Soil Science. The study was conducted to characterize the distribution of inorganic and organic forms of phosphorus in runoff water from farming systems with a history of manure application. Results of the study highlight the importance of forage management in controlling phosphorus in runoff. Knowledge of the phosphorus release patterns in addition to the amounts of phosphorus lost in runoff is increasingly important, as concerns for water quality increase both regionally and nationally.
