During the past 20 years, there has been a constant reduction in mineral fertilizer use due to price increases and environmental concerns. These changes can lead to a decrease in soil P content, which is already observed in some regions in Wallonia. Some new issues are now emerging. Is current cropping systems compatible with yield maintenance? Do organic fertilizers have a similar effect than mineral fertilizers? To answer to these questions, a short-term experiment in controlled conditions and 2 long-term experimental plots were studied. The short-term experiment permitted to study the kinetics of P after an input and differences between fertilizer types, whereas the long-term experiments studied 3 levels of P and K input and different organic compounds. Although an evolution of P content was observed, no difference of yield was found before about 20 years. However, after 47 years, available P levels were considered as low in zero P-input plots and attention must now be focused on these parcels. Zero P-input caused a mean yield decrease of 7%, while a double input increased yield by 2% in comparison to plots with input corresponding to crop export. Thus the zero P-input option is rarely economically profitable in the long-term and providing double the amount of P removed is never financially sustainable. Finally, no difference of P content was observed between organic and mineral fertilizers, except for manure which engendered a higher P content. In conclusion, organic and inorganic fertilizers had a relatively similar effect and overlooking P fertilizer is possible in the short-term but P content has to be followed at the long-term, although yield loss was limited.

Wallonia presents a high diversity of soils and the fate of P in the soil-plant systems can highly vary from one region to another. The fate of phosphorus depends upon its forms in the solid constituents of soils, which is seldom characterized. For example, total P determines the soil reserve of P but also the potential P content which can be lost to surface water by erosion but analysis of this parameter is time consuming and rarely performed. This study aims (i) to define functional groups of soils for a differentiate P management, (ii) to estimate total soil P by regression equations based on soil parameters, and (iii) to estimate the quality of these predictions. The study consists in a characterization of 12 parent materials in Wallonia, collected across different land uses. A classification of soils was defined by clustering analysis and 5 groups were defined according to P contents and forms. Using this information in regression improved the quality of predictions. The coefficients of determination vary from 0.83 to 0.99, in comparison to a coefficient of 0.77 for the global regression. Then, pedotransfer functions were validated with an independent external dataset of 55 soils. Estimation of the quality of the prediction of P content (mean error, standard deviation of prediction and root mean square error) was made with global and local regression models. In conclusion, using a soil classification allowed to improve P content assessment by specific regressions and to propose differentiated P management for each group of soils. [less ▲]

The degree of phosphorus saturation (DPS) represents the ratio of sorbed phosphorus (P) to the P sorption capacity (PSC) of soils. In some countries, DPS is used to evaluate the risk of P loss and surface water eutrophication. This study investigated DPS measurement and prediction in neutral loamy soils fromWallonia, Belgium. A total of 57 agricultural topsoil samples subject to diverse P management were evaluated. No satisfactory relationship could be found between PSC determined by a one-point short-term isotherm in the laboratory and the sum of aluminium and iron extracted by oxalate (Alox +Feox). The equation PSC=a Alox +b pHw appeared to be more appropriate for estimating PSC in the soils studied. These soils had a near-neutral pH, and P fixation processes linked to the presence of calcium ions or carbonates were important. Comparisons of DPS with soil-test P and water-extracted P suggested that DPS could be a useful agronomic and/or environmental indicator. Our results also showed that DPS values between 20 and 30% corresponded to the agronomic optimum of soil P content. Consequently, DPS may be used as an indicator of P status in neutral soils, provided that the PSC assessment is adapted to the local soil characteristics. [less ▲]

During the last twenty years, we observed a constant reduction of mineral fertilizer use, due to prices increase and environmental awareness, and an increase of crop removal, leading to a phosphorus (P) budget decrease. These changes are feared for a decrease of soil P content, which is already observed in some regions in Wallonia. However, P being an essential element for plant growth, is a such management compatible with yield maintaining? Are the current cropping systems sustainable? To answer to the questions, different studies are made. However, long-term data are rarely available to understand the influence of cropping systems on the soil behavior, leaching risks or to choose adequate indicators of P. To answer to these questions in our soils, 2 experimental plots of the Walloon Agricultural Research Center. These experimental plots were established in 1967 and 1959 in order to evaluate the effect of, respectively, 3 P and K input levels and different organic inputs on the production. Soils samples were taken in plots and analyzed in laboratory. So, different P indicators and edaphic parameters were determined. This study showed that all indicators are coherent with P levels and correlated with yields but no many differences can be shown between fertilizer types. Meanly, zero P-input engenders a decrease of yield of 7%, while a double input increases yield of 2% in comparison to plots with an input corresponding to crop export. So, financially, the zero P-input option is rarely profitable in the long-term and double input of P removed is never financially sustainable. Leaching into deeper soils levels was studied with analysis of deeper horizons which indicated any leaching , even in plots with double inputs. Indeed, soil P contents in depth were similar in these plots than those with no P-inputs or soils under forest cover. So, to conclude, these plots help to study the sustainability of cropping systems in real situations and to determine appropriate management of P. [less ▲]

A l’heure où les questions agronomiques, environnementales et économiques imposent à l’agriculteur une gestion parcimonieuse de ses intrants agricoles, l’élaboration d’un conseil de fumure au plus près de la réalité terrain est primordiale. Dans cette optique, l’ASBL REQUASUD, en collaboration avec les différents laboratoires provinciaux membres de la chaine Minérale-sols de l’ASBL REQUASUD, a élaboré un conseil de fumure personnalisé. Celui-ci intègre les spécificités locales du milieu naturel, notamment pédologiques et climatiques qui coexistent en Wallonie. Les analyses réalisées en laboratoire doivent être interprétées avant d’être délivrées à l’agriculteur. Cette interprétation doit être indépendante du laboratoire et basée sur des règles clairement définies. Ainsi, en vue d’une harmonisation de tous les laboratoires, une révision de la méthodologie permettant d’aboutir au conseil de fumure a été réalisée et a permis, du même coup, de revoir les seuils d’interprétation des résultats, sur base d’études récentes et des résultats de parcelles d’essai de longue durée, et d’intégrer un certain nombre de paramètres influençant le conseil de fumure. Ainsi, les notions de densité apparente, de profondeur d’échantillonnage ou encore de charge caillouteuse ont été introduites dans le calcul des besoins en phosphore du sol. Ces données, rarement mesurées en pratique, peuvent être extraites d’un outil cartographique, REQUACARTO, mis à la disposition des laboratoires par REQUASUD et ayant pour objectif de définir des zones de prélèvement et leurs propriétés. Des moyennes régionales en fonction des principaux types de sol ont été définies grâce aux bases de données disponibles au niveau de la Région wallonne. La question de l’influence du taux d’argile sur l’interprétation des résultats analytiques a également été soulevée, de manière à adapter les seuils de manière adéquate aux conditions locales. Au niveau de l’évaluation des exportations, les notions de classes d’aptitude et de potentiel racinaire ont été introduites. Le premier paramètre permet de prendre en compte l’influence de la qualité du sol sur les rendements observés au sein de la région. Le deuxième paramètre permet d’augmenter ou de diminuer les besoins en fonction de la culture et de la potentialité de cette plante à prélever du phosphore, toutes les plantes n’étant pas équivalentes. Enfin, contrairement à beaucoup de systèmes, les rendements ne correspondent pas à des données issues de la littérature mais aux moyennes régionales issues des statistiques de la région wallonne. Ces rendements sont ensuite multipliés par les valeurs d’exportations par unité de rendement. Les phénomènes de lixiviation ou de rétrogradation ont également pris en compte dans la révision du conseil de fumure. Cette interprétation se fait de manière localisée au sein de chaque zone de prélèvement afin de permettre une fertilisation raisonnée et précise. L’utilisation de zones de prélèvement au sein des parcelles permet de donner des conseils de fumure au sein de zones homogènes. En conclusion, cette démarche présente l’avantage d’être complète et d’intégrer les différents paramètres pédologiques et agronomiques en vue d’un conseil de fumure raisonné. Les outils ont été mis en place afin de disposer facilement des différentes données nécessaires au diagnostic agronomique. Un outil informatique a notamment été élaboré afin de calculer de manière automatique le conseil de fumure approprié, le logiciel étant lié aux bases de données et aux outils cartographiques. Enfin, elle permet de réaliser un conseil de fumure raisonné par zone de prélèvement en prenant en compte les spécificités de chaque zone et non un conseil de fumure unique pour la parcelle. L’ensemble de la réflexion mise en place et présentée ici a également été détaillée dans une brochure disponible sur internet (Genot et al., 2011). [less ▲]

Soil quality is a central concern regarding sustainable multifunctionnality of cultivated and natural territories : food and non-food biomass production, environmental and ecosystemic services… Quality indicators and reference levels are needed in order to evaluate the state of the soil resources from a given land, for land-use planning or and to detect any temporal evolution. Our department has been involved for years in the implementation of substantial databases about soil quality in the Walloon region. The communication aims at sharing our experience in the establishment of soil evaluation references and tools, geographic databases, time monitoring, analysis networking, applied to the questions of soil fertility and soil contaminations. The Requasud network is a regional initiative aiming at harmonizing the methods for soil sampling, analysis, and interpretation. We will present how 20 years of applied research led to the sound implementation of a dataset of more than 200,000 samples in cultivated fields all across Wallonia, and where are the remaining questions and needs for future research. Discussions should then focus to comparisons with the situations encountered by the participants to the Workshop. [less ▲]

Application of phosphorus (P) fertilizers to agricultural soils should be based on sound knowledge about soil P reserves, availability and lability to optimize conditions for plant uptake while limiting P transport to surface waters. This study investigated relationships between parent material (PM), land use and P fractions in agricultural soils at a regional scale. Surface and deep (100–120 cm) soil samples were collected from 120 agricultural sites (240 total samples) and analysed for three P forms (inorganic, organic and available) as well as for additional key properties. Land uses within the study area were continuous cropland, permanent pasture and temporary grassland. The area covered the 12 most common parent types in Wallonia. Mean total P contents were 904 and 401 mg/kg in surface and deep samples, respectively, with a 33% coefficient of variation for both horizons. The organic P fraction represented, on average, 30% of total P, while available P corresponded to 9% of total P. The influence of PM was apparent in both the surface and deep soil samples, while land use influenced only surface properties. The pattern in total P content relative to land use was pasture ≥ cropland ≥ temporary grassland. Correlation analyses highlighted significant relationships between edaphic parameters viz Alox, Feox, CEC, TOC, pH and P content, the main soil parameter being Alox which determines P sorption capacity. An enrichment factor was used to distinguish between geogenic sources and human activities in terms of topsoil P content. [less ▲]
