    Abstract

    © 2015, Springer International Publishing Switzerland. Soil phosphate research has been hampered by the persistence of superseded ideas and language. Consequently few have recognised the two phosphate-sparing effects of previous phosphate fertilizer application: one caused by the decreased buffering capacity; the other caused by the eventual cessation of the diffusive movement of phosphate into the adsorbing particle. This is one cause of excessive phosphate applications and thence to contamination of water.
