Title: Estimated Statewide Phosphorus Fertilizer use by major watersehd in Minnesota for crop year 2016

Abstract: Phosphorus fertilizer use was estimated for the state on a major watershed (HUC8) basis. Six major crops that receive Phosphorus fertilizer were isolated in the 2016 Cropland Data Layer (Corn, Soybeans, Wheat, Sugar beets, Potatoes, and Dry Beans). Corn, Soybean, and Wheat fertilizer use was estimating using the 2016-2019 USDA ERS Fertilizer Use Report, and the remaining crops had University of Minnesota recommendations applied to them. All fertilizer rates were then inflated to match 2016 MDA fertilizer sales data and summed by major watershed. All values of Phosphorus fertilizer are listed as Pounds of Elemental Phosphorus.
