Employees collecting soil samples

Phosphorus availability is limited for plant growth in the Appalachian region because of the inherent soil characteristics. Research is being conducted at AFSRC to investigate the availability and dynamics of soil P in pasture and forage lands. Here, Kate Hatfield (Physical Science Technician) and Eddy Lester (Agricultural Science Research Technician) are soil sampling in early spring to estimate phosphorus availability in a Chicory (Cichorium intybus L.) plot.
