Title: Processes involved in mobilization of phosphorus in different farming systems in Southwestern Ontario: Nutrient levels in plant tissues and soils
Author: Resource Efficient Agricultural Production (REAP) - Canada
Abstract: The effects of the application of different types of phosphorus-containing fertilizers (rock P, super phosphate and compost) were examined on six different farms in order to identify some of the critical parameters for the mobilization of phosphate. The farms (three organic and three conventional) provided a gradient of conditions ranging from long-term organic to moderately intensive conventional. Three other experiments examined how crop, soil, and residue management practices on a long-standing organic farm affect mobilization of native and applied phosphate.
