Reported Phosphorus Deficient Soils in the U.S. - Courtesy USDA This map shows the areas in the United States where the soils are deficient in phosphorus. Cattle grazed on these areas without phosphorus supplements develop what the Florida Agricultural Experiment Station calls "stiffs" or "Sweeney" (phosphorus deficiency).

It should be noted that because an entire state is marked in "red", this does not indicate that the "entire" state has phosphorus deficient soils; these are states where there are known areas of phosphorus deficient soils.

We welcome your comments and input regarding phosphorus deficient soils. If there is a particular area that you know that is phosphorus deficient, please let us know and we will be happy to research it and add it.
