Summary in the original language of the document

Closing nutrient cycles is at the core of organic agriculture.
Replenishing soil P reserves will prevent deterioration of
soil fertility and sustain good productivity.

Summary translation

Die Schließung von Nährstoffkreisläufen ist das Kernstück der ökologischen Landwirtschaft.
Die Wiederauffüllung der P-Reserven im Boden verhindert eine Verschlechterung der
Bodenfruchtbarkeit verhindern und eine gute Produktivität erhalten.

EPrint Type:Practice tool
Teaser:Closing nutrient cycles by using diversified phosphorus sources in organic agriculture.
What problem does the tool address?:On many organic farms, especially those without livestock,
phosphorus (P) exports through the sale of produce is
greater than P imports through fertilisers and purchased
animal feed. While soil P reserves from residual fertiliser
applied before conversion to organic farming can often deliver
P for decades, mining of soils is unsustainable in the
long term.
What solution does the tool offer?:Many bio-resources, such as digestates and composts, contain
P from various organic wastes. Wastewater treatment
plants are a major sink for P as well. There are many options
under development to recycle P from these waste
streams. Some are already permitted in organic agriculture.
