RC-P is a simple model to calculate the long-term effect of fertiliser phosphorus application(s) on crop P uptake and yield. The input data are mainly derived from a one-year P-fertiliser trial on a representative crop and soil combination

RC-P can be used for calculating the long-term recovery of fertiliser phosphorus application(s). The articles mentioned as references (see under General) describe a number of applications.
