Fig. 5. Trends of total dissolved Al concentrations in groundwater samples collected from a WTR field study conducted in the Okeechobee watershed from (A) shallow and (B) deep wells in an 18-mo study period (Agyin-Birikorang et al., 2009). Various P sources (fertilizer, poultry manure, or biosolids) were applied at rates sufficient to meet the nitrogen (N-based) or phosphorus (P-based) needs of the crop.
