This paper presents the experimental data on the amount of available phosphorus in a sandy soil assessed by the Egner-Riehm (DL) method and water extraction method. Simultaneously, the effects of the addition to the soil of calcium oxide, calcium carbonate, powder superphoshate, and soil incubation on the P content was assessed. It was found that available phosphorus content in the soil extracted by water was lower than that assessed by the Egner-Riehm method. The effect of lime application was different in the extracts obtained by the compared methods. As effect of liming, the available phosphorus content assessed by the water extraction method was smaller. The addition to the soil of powder superphosphate caused an increase of the available phosphorus recovery by both methods. The water extraction allowed 20% of the added phosphorus to be recovered.
