The effect of a reduction in phosphate application on soil phosphate pools

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paper

    Abstract

    To stop phosphor build up in the soil and leaching to surface and ground waters, the Dutch government is gradually reducing allowable phosphate application on grassland from 130 kg/ha in 2005 to 90 kg/ha per year in 2015. A field experiment was started to monitor the phosphate balances: for three soil types: sandy, peat and clay soils
