Title: Organic P in Soil and Water Systems: Quantification, Bioavailability, Fate, and Transport

Format: Oral Topical Session
Keywords: Organic phosphorusSoil phosphorus
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.
