Global Fertilizer and Manure, Version 1: Phosphorus Fertilizer Application
Entry ID: CIESIN_SEDAC_FERMANv1_PAPP


Summary
Abstract: The Phosphorus Fertilizer Application dataset of the Global Fertilizer and Manure, Version 1 Data Collection represents the amount of phosphorus fertilizer nutrients applied

to croplands. The national-level phosphorus fertilizer application rates for crops are from the International Fertilizer Industry Association (IFA) "Fertilizer Use by Crop 2002" statistics

database that is available by request from the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The number of crop-specific fertilizer application rates reported for each country ranged from 2

crops (Guinea) to over 50 crops (United States), and the years for which the data are reported range from 1994 to 2001. Spatially explicit fertilizer inputs of phosphorus (N) were computed

by fusing national-level statistics on fertilizer use with global maps of harvested area for 175 crops. The data were compiled by Potter et al. (2010) and are distributed by the Columbia

University Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN).


Purpose: To provide phosphorus fertilizer application data that can be used in socioeconomic and ecological modeling and to explore anthropogenic activities on

ecosystems.
