What can be done to reduce the risk of P losses?

The final P Index Score is influenced by our management of fields. Take another look at the factors used to determine the risk of P loss from a field.

What can be done in the way we manage our crops, fertilizers, manures, etc. to reduce our risk of P loss?

Many planners will evaluate a field with the P Index and, if it rates in the High or Very High risk category, recommend such shifts in management to lower the risk into the Low or Medium category. This often leads to more even application of manure and fertilizer P across the farm, while allowing limited recycling of manure nutrients on the field that originally scored High or Very High.
