Manure Phosphorus Management from a Global Perspective

While livestock manure is a significant global reserve of P, it is not always used efficiently in agricultural production. Due to the segregation of livestock and cropping systems in many countries, poor redistribution of manure P has led to regions with both surpluses and deficits. As phosphate rock must be considered a finite source, the recycling of P from manures regionally, nationally, and even globally needs to be improved for food security in the future.
