Soil Phosphorus Storage Capacity: An Innovative Technology for Water Quality Protection in Agroforestry Systems Vimala Nair Soil and Water Science Department, Univ. of Florida Co-authors: PKR Nair, R Mosquera-Losada, G-A Michel, D Howlett, and P Nkedi-Kizza February 12, 2014 1

Outline… • Phosphorus Saturation Ratio (PSR) • PSR and the Soil P Storage Capacity (SPSC) – Determination of SPSC • Application of the PSR/SPSC tool for water quality protection in tree-based agricultural systems – Silvopastures in Florida (Ultisols/Spodosols) – Coffee Plantations in Uganda (Oxisols) – Dehesa in Spain (Alfisols) – Simulated Silvopastures in Spain (Inceptisols) 2

Phosphorus Saturation Ratio (PSR) 25 PSR = Ex-P/ [ExFe + ExAl] Ex = Oxalate, Mehlich 1 or Mehlich 3 WSP, mg/kg 20 Threshold PSR “change point” 15 10 5 0 0.1 0.2 0.3 PSR 0.4 0.5 The “change point” is determined statistically 3

Threshold PSR Water Soluble P (mg kg -1 ) 25 Surface Horizon 20 • Ex-P/ [ExFe + ExAl] (Ex = Extractable) • Change point = 0.10 (Confidence interval = 0.05 – 0.10) Subsurface Horizon 15 Threshold PSR 10 5 0 0 0.125 0.25 0.375 0.5 PSR OX Nair, V.D., K.M.

The Approach – SPSC SPSC = (0.1 – Soil PSR ) * – Oxalate Fe 56 Oxalate Al * 31 27 (mg P kg-1) Sink when soil PSR < 0.1 (positive SPSC) Source when soil PSR > 0.1 (negative SPSC) • SPSC can also be expressed in mmoles P kg-1, or kg P ha-1 • SPSC is additive; SPSC for horizons within a sandy soil can be added providing a single value for a designated depth • Used to predict the lifespan of a P application site 5

Silvopasture on Ultisols in Florida Treeless Pasture • Location: Suwannee County, Florida, USA • Soil: Ultisols • SPSC calculated to 1 m depth Silvopasture Treatment SPSC (kg P ha-1) Silvopasture 342 Treeless pasture -60* Michel, G.-A., V.D. Nair, P.K.R. Nair. 2007. Plant Soil. 297:267-276. 8

Simulated Silvopastures in Spain • Location: Castro de Rey Farm, Galicia, Spain. • Soil: Inceptisols • Mean SPSC in different soil depths up to 100 cm between pooled Betula alba and Pinus radiata silvopasture treatments versus pasture Sand/Silt/Clay Howlett, 2007 9

Dehesa System, Extremadura, Spain • Location: St. Esteban Farm, Extremadura, Spain • Soils: Alfisols • SPSC in different soil depths up to 100 cm at 2, 5, and 15 meters from individual Quercus suber trees Sand/Silt/Clay Howlett, 2007 10

Summary & Conclusions • A threshold PSR identifies the soil PSR at which the waterextractable P begins to increase • SPSC is calculated based on a threshold PSR value • When SPSC is positive (below the threshold PSR), soil is a P sink; when SPSC is negative (above the threshold PSR), soil is a P source • The PSR/SPSC approach can be used to predict P storage and loss from agriculture and agroforestry systems • In the presence of trees, the P storage within a soil profile is greater than that without any trees under comparable ecological settings “Trees for Life“: Trees remove excess P from soils Tree-based agricultural systems provide a greater environmental service in regard to water quality protection compared to treeless ones 12
