Optimizing land use for the delivery of catchment ecosystem services
(The Ecological Society of America, 2016-08)
© The Ecological Society of America. Despite widespread implementation of best management practices, sustainable farming is neither practical nor possible in certain locations, where protecting water quality and promoting ...
The ability to reduce soil legacy phosphorus at a country scale
(Frontiers Media SA, 2020-01)
The build-up of soil phosphorus (P) beyond plant requirements can lead to a long-term legacy of P losses that could impair surface water quality. Using a database of ∼4,50,000 samples collected from 2001–2015 we report the ...
The efficacy of good practice to prevent long-term leaching losses of phosphorus from an irrigated dairy farm
Phosphorus (P) can be leached from intensive land uses, including grazed dairy farming. There is some evidence to suggest that P-leaching can enrich groundwater, especially where fertiliser or farm dairy effluent P (FDE) ...
An assessment of MitAgator: A farm-scale tool to estimate and manage the loss of contaminants from land to water
(American Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, 2016)
Land users and managers require decision support tools (DSTs) that enable them to estimate losses of contaminants from land to freshwater. MitAgator is a DST that estimates losses of nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P), sediment, ...
