Ahmad1, M. Abdel Basit1, S. Yamamoto2, T. Honna2, H. Yasuda1 & M. Inoue1 1 2 Arid Land study Centre, Tottori college, Japan school of Agriculture, Tottori college, Japan summary non-stop use of phosphorus (P) fertilizers has created critical environmental matters. keep watch over of non-point resource of P illness is the most important problem. In present research, residues from the water therapy amenities (WTR) and blast furnace slag (BFS) have been proven for his or her skill to lessen the P runoff. Residues from water remedy amenities were generally verified lower than crop or grass conceal yet much less is comprehend whilst utilized to reveal lands. equally, BFS has been studied for its use as a filtering fabric in wastewater therapy vegetation, yet its use on agricultural lands for P keep watch over has now not been stated but. A silty clay loam soil was once amended with BFS and WTR on the fee of fifty g kg-1 soil. Chemical P used to be utilized on the cost of four hundred kg ha-1. Bared soil floor with roughnesses (low and excessive) used to be uncovered to 2 man made rainfall intensities (35 and seventy five mm h-1). each one therapy was once uncovered to 3 rainfall occasions with a relentless rainfall intensity of 70 mm. result of the learn confirmed that, despite rainfall depth and soil roughness, dissolved reactive P (DRP) decreased over the runoff time from either amended pots whereas from regulate pots an expanding pattern was once saw. Water remedy residues decreased the suggest DRP focus by way of 27. three% and DRP load by way of 32% in comparison to un-amended plots. although the fashion was once declining yet P concentrations have been larger from BFS amended plots in comparison to regulate. DRP concentrations have been decrease less than excessive rainfall depth than low rain depth end result of the dilution issue.
