2. A common agricultural soil test can identify legacy P hotspots in a drainage ditch network.

Agricultural soils have accumulated considerable phosphorus (P) reserves along the transport pathways within land-water continuum. Where P concentrations are excessive compared to the soil P sorption capacity, dissolved soluble P can leach to waterbodies. A phosphorus saturation ratio (PSR = P/(Fe...

7. Do soil cadmium concentrations decline after phosphate fertiliser application is stopped: a comparison of long-term pasture trials in New Zealand?

Decreasing soil cadmium (Cd) is one method of removing Cd from the food chain. Phosphorus (P) fertilisers are a major source of Cd inputs into soil. Stopping P fertiliser should theoretically decrease Cd inputs and soil Cd accumulation, but there are few field data to show if this occurs. We...

9. Influence of crop-water production functions on the expected performance of water pricing policies in irrigated agriculture.

Agricultural economics Water Programming Models (WPM) has found that irrigators in water scarce areas have a rather inelastic response to water prices, making water pricing cost-ineffective towards water saving. We hypothesize that the predicted water saving performance of pricing is significantly...
