Abstract

By 2050 the global population will be 9.7 billion, placing an unprecedented burden on the world's soils to produce extremely high food yields. Phosphorus (P) is crucial to plant growth and mineral fertilizer is added to soil to maintain P concentrations, however this is a finite resource, thus efficient use is critical. Plants primarily uptake P from a labile (available) P pool and not from the stable solid phase; transfer between these pools limits bioavailability. Transfer is controlled by soil properties which vary between soil types. The dynamic phosphorus pool simulator (DPPS) quantifies crop production and soil P relationships by utilising the transfer. This approach effectively models crop uptake from soil inputs, but it does not quantify the efficiency use. This study incorporates geochemical techniques within DPPS to quantify the efficiency of fertilizer-P use based on soil chemistry.
