Without phosphorus in the environment, no living organisms could exist. Phosphorus is present in all plant and animal tissue. It is necessary for such life processes as photosynthesis, the synthesis and breakdown of carbohydrates, and the transfer of energy within the plant. Phosphorus is taken up by the plant from the soil. Unless the soil contains adequate phosphorus or it is supplied to the soil from external sources, plant growth will be limited.
