Phosphorus legacy: role of long-term soil phosphorus accumulation in the sustainable management of intensive agroecosystems
(Lincoln University, 2017-08-02)
Phosphorus (P) is an essential nutrient for all organisms. Phosphate rock is primarily utilised for the manufacture of P fertilisers, and is a finite resource. Most agricultural lands worldwide present low levels of available ...
Impact of different tree species on soil phosphorus immediately following grassland afforestation
(Sociedad Chilena de la Ciencia del Suelo (Chilean Society of Soil Science), 2016-06)
Previous studies have revealed that significant changes in soil phosphorus (P) occurred as a consequence of grassland afforestation, although when these changes occurred and the influence of different tree species remains ...
Phosphorus response and optimum pH ranges of twelve pasture legumes grown in an acid upland New Zealand soil under glasshouse conditions
(Chilean Society of Soil Science (Sociedad Chilena de la Ciencia del Suelo), 2016-06)
Pasture legumes provide critical nitrogen inputs but fail to persist in typical acidic low P fertility upland soils. Alternative legume species for these environments are urgently sought. Twelve novel legume species were ...
Phosphorus response and efficiency of 12 novel dryland legume species on an acid high country soil
(Fertilizer and Lime Research Centre, Massey University, 2012-02)
High country soils are typically acidic and have low fertility compared with intensive high fertility low land systems. Pasture legumes commonly used in New Zealand perform poorly in these environments. The optimum soil P ...
