Technical Abstract: Water-extractable phosphorus (P) in manure is strongly related to dissolved P in runoff from soils receiving recent additions of manure. A survey of water-extractable P concentrations in manures submitted to Penn State University's Agricultural Analytical Services Laboratory was conducted. Results reveal a broad range of water-extractable P concentrations in livestock manures. Associations between water-extractable P and manure type and storage method are reviewed.
