How Can Soil Tests Be Used to Adjust and Monitor Waste Utilization Plans?
When waste application rates are based on N the waste also supplies other nutrients, such as P, Cu, and Zn, that may not be required.
P, Cu, and Zn are not subject to leaching and remain in the soil until taken up by plants.
As nutrients continue to accumulate they may become toxic to plants.
