Soil phosphorus testing made great strides with multiple chemical tests proposed and implemented that have been used for fertilizer management programs for crop production during the previous century. In the latter part of the previous century, the environmental impact of excess nonpoint phosphorus loading from the landscape (e.g. agricultural lands) to waterbodies became an issue of increased concern and soil phosphorus testing came to the forefront of management and monitoring.
