Description

Phosphorus is an essential nutrient for both animals and plants. The main source of phosphorus is phosphate-containing rocks. 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.
