Session Description: Historically, research into agronomic and environmental aspects of phosphorus (P) has focused on inorganic P.  However, soil organic P (Po) dynamics are also important for sustainable crop production and surface water quality. Research is needed to better identify and quantify Po forms in soil-water systems, as this knowledge could reduce unneeded P inputs to cropland, decrease in P loss risk, and increase P use efficiency.  

This session solicits oral papers that address various aspects of Po in soil and aquatic systems, including but not limited to its fate, transport, reactivity, bioavailability, speciation, risk assessment, and role in crop nutrition/aquatic ecology.
