This article presents a critical discussion comparing the traditional method and a newly proposed balance method to calculate percent recovery of fertilizer P applied to soils. The traditional difference method is defined as P uptake from the soil treated with fertilizer P minus P uptake from a control with no P added divided by the amount of fertilizer P applied. The balance method simply considers the ratio of P uptake from the P fertilized soil to the amount of fertilizer P applied and does… CONTINUE READING
