- develop an interdisciplinary approach to identify P sensitive watersheds and water bodies; expanding and improving upon the Phosphorus Index site assessment tool.
- develop best management practices (BMPs) to reduce agricultural P losses to surface waters by erosion and runoff (surface and subsurface).
- develop an animal manure application strategy based on both P and N.
- develop upper, environmentally-based, critical limits for soil test P and new soil testing methods that can more accurately identify sites where P loss will be of significant environmental concern.
an organization of research scientists, policy makers, extension personnel, and educators. Our mission is to develop and promote innovative solutions to minimize phosphorus losses from agriculture by supporting:
-information exchange between research, extension, and regulatory communities
-recommendations for phosphorus management and research
-initiatives that address phosphorus loss in agriculture
