Utilizing Hybrid Poplar Trees to Phytoremediate Soils with Excess Phosphorus

Phytoremediation, using plants to remove soil pollutants, has been suggested as a method to remove P from over-enriched soils. This research investigated the potential of utilizing hybrid poplar trees to remove excess P from soils associated with long-term poultry manure application. Hybrid poplar clones were planted in Snow Hill, MD, on three fields differing in previous poultry manure applications with Mehlich-3 soil-test P levels of 261, 478…
