Such systems were recently assessed in France in two studies. 1). 5 kg P ha−1year−1. All systems except one received P fertiliser input with frequencies varying from every third year to five years out of six. The average P input at the rotation level varied widely from 0 to 48 kg P ha−1year−1.

They showed that available soil P was consistently lower on organic than on conventional farms. , rock phosphate in alkaline soils). Such reports of low P status in organically-managed soils should serve as a warning about potential negative consequences for crop yield. The relationship between crop productivity and soil P status in organic farming systems was recently thoroughly reviewed in Australia (Cornish 2009). It was concluded that many Australian extensive crop farmers experienced a yield reduction with organic farming.
