Application of Phosphorus in Biosolids to Agricultural Soils
ISBN: 1 84057 449 6
Laboratory studies and field assesssments using representative bisolid types from three regions in England were undertaken to develop practical guidelines on the safe application of phosphorus in biosolids to agricultural land without increasing the risk of eutrophication of adjacent watercourses. The guidelines assess the risk of mobilisation of soil and biosolid phosphorus in runoff and erosion, take account of the hydrological connectivity between the field and the watercourse and suggest potential mitigation options where the risk is high.

The Signficance of Sewage Sludge as a Source of Phosphorus Loss from Agricultural Land to Surface Waters : A Literature Review95/SL/02/1 - ISBN: 1 84057 071 7
Sludge applications based on nitrogen requirements may lead to an accumulation of phosphorus in soil. There is a risk of consequential eutrophication in vulnerable areas. Although the immediate availability of phosphorus from... More...Price: £150 Add to basket
