Most Australian agricultural soils is deficient in phosphorus (P). Phosphorus is an essential nutrient for plant growth and soil health. Conversely, high quantity of phosphorous can leach and contaminate nearby waterbodies which can lead to eutrophication.
Biochar has been found to be beneficial for nutrient uptake, improving soil health and plant growth. This study aims to explore the potential for blending biosolids with biochar to immobilise phosphorus and enhance agronomic value and soil parameters. It will focus on optimisation of soil nutrient retention (P) from applied biofertiliser in plant available form and to minimise nutrient environmental losses.
