Fee Instruments to Reduce Phosphorus Surpluses per Unit Area Increase yields by pest control and soil improvement Soil sampling to determine P requirements Manure storage capacity Sophisticated P application equipment Erosion control – crop cover, low/no tillage Low P feed and phytase additive Manure export Composted manure for fertiliser Livestock density licenses Wageningen Univ/SEI 2010
  8. 8. Fees to Promote Recycling of Phosphorus Tax relief on source separation systems and waste-based inputs Agroproduct surcharge to be used for recycling Use of Al or Mg instead of Fe to precipitate P in wastewater Renewable P fertilizer (from recovered P) Struvite and urine production Reuse of slaughter waste in agriculture
  9. 9. Other tax instruments Tax on unessential uses of P-rock if there are substitutes Tax on P-intensive crop-based consumption bioenergy Tax on P-intensive meat and dairy consumption
