Improving solubility of rock phosphate is critical for phosphorus (P) management in cropping. This experiment was conducted during 2010 to determine the P solubilized from rock phosphate (RP) through composting with fresh poultry litter (PL). The RP used in the experiment was collected from Hazara area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) province, Pakistan. The treatments comprised of PL alone, PL+RP, and PL+RP+ Effective Microorganism (EM). Each treatment had 3 replicates. The compost was prepared in… CONTINUE READING
