In areas with intensive livestock farming, soils have been enriched with phosphorus (P), following heavy applications of animal manure. These soils are a risk for nearby surface waters, as the leaching of P from these soils contributes to eutrophication of these surface waters. This study was set up to better understand the speciation and desorption of P in noncalcareous sandy soils, so as to contribute to the development of management guidelines for these soils.
