Phosphorus Movement in Soils: Soil-Orthophosphate Reaction Kinetics1

Abstract

Abstract

This paper presents four models to describe the kinetics of P adsorption-desorption reactions in soils. The mass transfer model, Langmuir kinetics model, and Langmuir-Hinshelwood models were developed and compared with phosphate adsorption data on a soil obtained by batch-shaken flask experiments.

For P adsorption times up to 3 hours, the mass transfer and Langmuir kinetics models described the experimental data very well. The Langmuir kinetics model gave a slightly better fit of the experimental data. These kinetic data probably represent an upper bound for unsaturated flow in soils.
