Frontline Research in the Rhizosphere Involved in Soil Phosphorus: For Efficient Use of Unavailable P in Soils Soil Science and Plant Nutrition

The Japanese Society of Soil Science and Plant Nutrition (JSSSPN) is pleased to offer free access to “Frontline Research in the Rhizosphere Involved in Soil Phosphorus: For Efficient Use of Unavailable P in Soils”.

Phosphorus has been facing the depletion of the resource, although it is an essential nutrient for plant growth. On the other hand, phosphorus has been accumulated in cultivated lands. The utilization of the unavailable phosphorus accumulated in the soils is required for sustainable food production. This special section aims to represent recent works on the utilization of phosphorus in soils, such as phosphorus dynamics in the soil at cultivated lands, phosphorus mobilization by plants, and strategies by microbial symbioses.
