Primary and secondary origin of "non-extractable" soil inorganic phosphorus
"Nonextractable" soil inorganic phosphorus can have both a primary and a secondary origin. Apatite included within other minerals and phosphorus distributed throughout mineral lattices constitute the primary sources. "Nonextractable" secondary phosphorus accumulates during soil development and is associated with hydrated sesquioxides.
