- ... A significant pathway of nonpoint source, agricultural phosphorus (P) transport is surface runoff, to which surface-applied manure can contribute. Increasing the time between manure application and the first rain-runoff event is proposed as a practice to reduce runoff P loss. Few studies have investigated this aspect of manure P loss in runoff, with mixed results. Studies observing a decrease in r ...
