Abstract
Over-application of phosphorus to cropland surrounding dairy farms is an increasing concern nationwide. Dairy farms often irrigate crops with wastewater from their lagoons. The wastewater phosphorus content can exceed crops' needs, resulting in soil phosphorus accumulation. Accumulation eventually leads to runoff into surrounding streams and lakes, degrading water quality. This project will test the feasibility of using a new type of crystallizer for removing phosphorus from wastewater.
