Improve P

Organic farming systems rely on the efficient use and recycling of available resources, however current P balances indicate a decline in plant available soil P. This suggests that current practice is not sustainable in the long-term. This project will assess current knowledge on P management in organic farming and availability of alternative P fertilizers (APFs) in the 6 partner countries (Austria, Germany, Norway, Switzerland, UK and Denmark).  The project’s overall aim is to help organic farmers realise the benefits of improved P cycling at a regional scale in full accordance with the goals of organic farming.
