Changes in Soil Phosphorus Fractions for a Long-Term Corn-Soybean Rotation with Tillage and Phosphorus Fertilization



Changes in Soil Phosphorus Fractions for a Long-Term Corn-Soybean Rotation with Tillage and Phosphorus Fertilization



Soil Science Society of America Journal 77(4): 1402-1412



Determining how agricultural management practices affect soil P over time could further our understanding of soil P cycling and, thereby, improve P fertilizer use. This study assessed the effects of tillage and P fertilization on soil P fractions over 10- and 16-yr periods of cultivation. In 1992, a long-term corn (Zea mays L.) and soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merr.] rotational experiment was established in eastern Canada. Soil samples (0-15 cm) were collected in spring 2002 and 2008 before corn was planted in plots cultivated under moldboard plow (MP) and no till (NT) management and fertilized with 0, 17.5, or 35 kg P ha(-1) and 160 kg N ha(-1) (applied only during the corn phase). Soil samples were analyzed for different attributes including P fractions, Mehlich-3 P (P-M3), P saturation index (PSI), and other chemical properties. Results show that P-M3 and PSI were greater under NT compared with MP and also increased with increasing P application. Resin-P was greater under fertilized NT compare with MP after the 10-yr period. Similar results were obtained with NaHCO3-inorganic P (Pi) after the 16-yr period. The P fertilization increased labile P fractions and HCl-P after the 10-yr period but increased all Pi fractions after the 16-yr period. This indicates that the effects of P fertilization increased over time. For the two periods of cultivation, total P declined regardless of treatment; resin-P, HCl-P, NaOH-organic P (Po), and residual-P were the main contributors and accounted for 83 to 98% of the decrease in total P. Regressions between total P and cumulative P budget indicate that the cumulative P budget variations account for 61 and 43% of total P variations after a 10- and 16-yr period, respectively. Positive correlations between all Pi fractions and cumulative P budget indicate that combined NT and P fertilization enhanced soil Pi fractions, thereby improving soil P supplying capacity and P balance.
