Inventory of P-Olsen data in the ISRIC-WISE database

 

Inventory of P-Olsen data in the ISRIC-WISE database for use in a study on “Effects of phosphorus limitation on global food security”, a collaborative project with the Plant Production Systems Group (PPS) of Wageningen UR and the Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (PBL).

This exploratory study presents an inventory of P-Olsen, pHwater, soil organic carbon, organic nitrogen, and exchangeable K values held in the ISRIC-WISE soil profile datbase. Such profile data are needed to assess location- rather soil type-specific crop yield responses using QUEFTS, an empirical model for the Quantitive Evaluation of the Fertitlity of Tropical Soils, and similar models.
