Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The objective of this study was to quantify the movement of molybdate-reactive phosphate (MRP) to subsurface drainage tiles in fine textured soils with a variety of crop management systems commonly used in the Midwestern-US. Subsurface tile flow and MRP concentrations from five fields with various crop management practices were monitored for 33 months. Flow and MRP concentrations were also monitored in a nearby stream.
