"Managing P in Organic Residuals Applied to Soils"
a Symposium produced by Univ. of Massachusetts/Amherst Extension
November 2, 2016- Marlborough, MA
How do we develop a balanced system for use of organic residuals, with all their benefits, without adding to negative environmental impacts caused by phosphorus (P) leaching and runoff? This symposium will provide technical, research-based information and dialogue on the presence, forms, dynamics, transport, and fates of P applied to soils in organic residuals such as composts, biosolids, manures, and digestates from anaerobic digestion. This symposium is intended to help in developing guidelines for the use of P-containing organic residuals in accordance with nutrient management regulations.
