Phosphate sorption in benchmark Vertisol and Alfisol profiles uri icon


  • The response of crops to added P is generally lesspredictable on Vertisols than on other soils such asAlfisols under similar agroclimatic conditions. Thecause of low P responses to applied P in Vertisolsis not known but is often attributed to sorption ofphosphate (Murthy 1988). However, recent workon the behaviour of P in Indian Vertisols indicatethat the Vertisols
