Effect of exogenous phosphate on the lability and phytoavailability of arsenic in soils.

The effect of exogenous phosphate (P, 200 mg⋅kg-1 soil) on the lability and phytoavailability of arsenic (As) was studied using the diffusive gradients in thin films (DGT) technique. Lettuce were grown on the As-amended soils following the stabilization of soil labile As after 90 days incubation. Phosphate (P) application generally facilitated plant growth… (More)
