Seasonal variability in particulate phosphorus (P) was characterized in riverbed sediment along the longitudinal gradient of an agricultural watershed in southern Ontario. Particulate P forms, nonapatite P (NAIP), apatite P (AP) and organic P (P), were determined by sequential extraction. Increased concentrations of NAIP and OP in fine-grained sediment ( 63 mu m) in upper reaches of the watershed are attributed to agricultural activity in the watershed. From a management perspective, this study provides a locational focus for P abatement programmes where a combination of traditional best management practices and improved nutrient management practices should be targeted.
