Fosfaatvormen in compost en andere organische meststoffen

Regelink, Inge; Rietra, René


Compost and other organic fertilizers contain phosphorus and their application rates should therefore comply with the P application rate standards for agricultural soil. Phosphorus in compost is exempted from this regulation for 50% (with a maximum of 3.5 kg P2O5/kg dry matter) due to the fact that compost consist partly of soil originating from garden waste. This project assessed phosphorus speciation in composts and several other organic fertilisers and relates the results to the potential availability of phosphorus for crop uptake.
