P Uptake Length

Figure 2. P uptake lengths (Sw) for the irrigation laterals ranged from 11 to 16 km, nearly 2 to 3 orders of magnitude greater than other reported values (Table 2). The longer uptake length measured for this study could be due to a combination of higher initial P concentrations and higher flow rates than other studies, both of which can increase uptake length.
