Dossier on phosphorus quite informative

17/06/2011 - Maureen Wilson

I am still finding the dossiers quite useful.

There is an ACP-EU funded project on phosphate:

'Optimizing phosphorus in sugar cane to decrease production costs and to protect fresh water resources in acp states'

Basically to look at phosphate mobility and use in sugarcane fields and my laboratory is doing the testing in Jamaica. This project is coordinated by Mauritius. Fiji is also a part of the project. Therefore, I found the dossier on phosphorus depletion quite informative.
