Q. 24

Describe the phos

Answer :

• The natural reservoir of phosphorus is rock, which contains phosphorus in the form of phosphates.


• When rocks are weathered, minute amounts of these phosphates dissolve in soil solution and are absorbed by the roots of the plants.


• Herbivores and other animals obtain this element from plants.


• The waste products and the dead organisms are decomposed by phosphate-solubilising bacteria releasing phosphorus in soil.
