Sustainable P Resolutions for 2013

January 3, 2013

Here are some useful New Year’s Resolution for P sustainability that were tweeted out, all in one place.

P Resolution #8: Support P recapture at your local wastewater treatment plant. Such as approach from Ostara. http://www.ostara.com/ 

P Resolution #7: Use less lawn fertilizer! 3 million tons of fertilizer used on lawns in USA each yr. Fertilize less – mow less! Win-win!

P Resolution #6: Support innovation to capture the lost P from animal and food wastes. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21377188 

P Resolution #3: Eat less meat in the coming year. Much recent increased P demand comes from increased meat consumption.  http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/7/4/044043 …

P Resolution #2: Follow the fertilizer 4R’s: right source at the right rate, right time and right place. http://www.ipni.net/4r 

P Resolution #1: Take measures to reduce soil erosion.
