Inorganic phosphorus comprises one of the biggest input fertilizers for tropical agriculture, particularly due to the high adsorption capacity of most tropical soils with respect to this element and the high amounts of P needed by plants. Meanwhile, organic P is a potential source of soil P, but its utilization is limited by its low decomposition rates that provide available forms of P. Soil phosphatases are suggested to fasten the transformation of organic P to inorganic P that is readily available to plants. Understanding the activities and their controlling factors such as pH, content of organic matter, water content, soil temperature, and nutrient status is of great necessary to better provide P for plant growth from potential organic-P sources.
