    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

Abstract Cattle slurry manure applied to land increases the risk of phosphorus (P) movement to surface waters, which may lead to eutrophication. The water-extractable fraction of P in slurry manure is correlated with P concentration in runoff from soils amended with slurry smanure, and thus is an effective indicator of environmental P loss. We evaluated the water-extractable P (WEP) and readily soluble P (RSP; i.e., P extractable in a single water extract) contents in slurry manure from nine farms. On some farms, the additive Euromestmix® (MX) is used to complex N-compounds in the slurry manure, but the effect of MX on P in the slurry manure is not known. We also focused on methodological factors affecting the measurement of P in slurry manure. Drying the slurry manure before analysis decreased WEP and RSP contents. Dilution of slurry manure by varying the dry matter-to-distilled water ratio increased the water-extractable fractions. Analysis of calcium and magnesium contents in water showed that these minerals are involved in the release of P in water. Total RSP content of slurry manures from the nine farms ranged from 1.83 to 4.06 mg P per g dry matter. A substantial portion of total P in the slurry manure occurred in the water-extractable (46–71%) and the readily soluble P fractions (24–51%). The addition of MX tended to decrease the readily soluble inorganic P content of slurry manures.
