The major use of phosphorus is in agriculture to make animal-feed supplement or nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium (NPK) fertilisers, upon which almost all of food production depends. This Environmental Studies Factsheet explains:
• The phosphorus cycle
• The sources and uses of Phosphorus.
• Arising problems.
