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) ...
The mitigation of phosphorus losses from a water-repellent soil used for grazed dairy farming
Phosphorus (P) losses via surface runoff can be large. Soil water repellency (SWR) occurs in warm and dry conditions. If SWR coincides with P fertiliser applications, the risk of P loss by surface runoff may increase. ...
Using organic phosphorus to sustain pasture productivity: A perspective
Organic phosphorus (P) in grazed pastures/grasslands could sustain production systems that historically relied on inorganic P fertiliser. Interactions between inorganic P, plants and soils have been studied extensively. ...
Effects of lime and organic amendments derived from varied source materials on cadmium uptake by potato
(American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, and Soil Science Society of America, Inc., 2017-07)
Repeated applications of Cd-rich phosphate fertilizers have resulted in elevated concentrations of this toxic element in some New Zealand soils. Exceedance of the food safety standard for Cd (0.1 mg kg⁻¹ fresh weight) has ...
