Feedback: Phosphate found in England
« on: 19/05/2016 17:50:02 »
Peter Bridgewater asked the Naked Scientists:
   Hi Naked Scientist
I was interested to hear in your report about phosphate that there was very little of this precious chemical left in the UK & farmers were totally reliant on imports from overseas? However, correct me if I am wrong but I understand that over billion tonnes of the stuff have been discovered in NE England & proposals were in motion to extract the phosphate:
