Phosphorus on the farm from feed grains and by-products

Mar 2004
Phosphorus is an important plant nutrient for growing dairy forages. Unfortunately, many dairies have more phosphorus excreted and stored in manure than they can use during a crop year. Soils have the ability to store moderate over-applications of phosphorus for future crop production, but continued over-application can lead to losses of phosphorus to surface water.
