As the rate of EFFECT OF NITROGEN ON PHOSPHORUS AVAILABH-ITY phosphorus absorption increases, the phosphorus concentration at the root surface decreases, and concentration gradients are developed between the phosphorus sources and the root. Continued transfer of phosphorus from sources to root is a consequence of these by: Phosphorus does not readily leach out of the root zone; potential for P-loss is mainly associated with erosion and runoff. Soils and sites that are most prone to erosion and runoff, or are in close proximity to streams, lakes and other water bodies need to be closely managed to avoid P loss. Figure 2.

Microbes may compete with plants for P, if the decomposing organic materials are high in carbon and low in nitrogen and phosphorus (i.e., wheat straw). Mineralization and immobilization occur simultaneously in soil.

Phosphorus Phosphorus can also contribute to the eutrophication of both freshwater and estuarine systems. Studies on the Cannonsville Reservoir, New York, showed.

  Nitrogen and phosphorous are critical determinants of plant growth and productivity, and both plant growth and root morphology are important parameters for evaluating the effects of supplied nutrients. Previous work has shown that the growth of Acer mono seedlings is retarded under nursery conditions; we applied different levels of N (0, 5, 10, and 15 g plant-1) and P (0, 4, 6 and 8 g plant The striking increase in the use of nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) fertilizers between and by intensive agricultural practices has led to degradation of air and water quality (Bumb and Baanante, ; Pinstrup-Anderson et al., ; Tilman et al., ). Available nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P) are the most limiting nutrients in the soils, which are acidic in nature, of this high-rainfall area of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Although the root/shoot ratio also increased from low to high irradiance at each harvest, nitrogen application resulted in an increased ratio from 3 to 62 mg litre-1 N, but decreased ratio at
