The Environmental Impact of Phosphorus from the Agricultural Disposal of Sewage Sludge - Stage 1

Price: £10  

This report describes progress in the first year of the three year project. All the experimental field sites were established and treatments applied. Sixty sludge sources from around the UK were identified for analytical determination of phosphorus bio- availability and trials undertaken to determine phosphorus loss in land run- off. Early results from lysimeter experiments show low phosphorus levels in leachate from sandy soils treated with liquid digested sludge. Historically sludged sites were sampled to determine the extent of phosphorus accumulation at various levels.
