PHOSPHORUS ASSESSMENT TOOL FOR TEXAS
Abstract:Phosphorus is an essential element for plant and animal growth and has long been recognized as necessary to maintain optimum agricultural production. Phosphorus inputs can also increase the biological productivity of surface waters by accelerating eutrophication. Eutrophication is the natural aging of lakes or streams brought on by nutrient enrichment. Phosphorus enrichment can come from any number of sources; however, agricultural non-point sources are currently receiving much attention. The amount of phosphorus contribution to surface water from agricultural sources is dependent on a number of factors.
