Nutrient availability: Sulfur

Balancing sulfur levels in your soils is essential for a successful corn crop. Discover management strategies to optimize your soil health.


Seize Your Corn Yield Potential With Sulfur's Amazing Superpowers

(AgWeb) Your corn crop is out of the ground and growing, but it looks stressed. Many of the plants are a pale green, some are stunted. You wonder if what you’re seeing is a nitrogen deficiency. Or maybe, you think, it’s a sulfur deficiency.


Why all the fuss about sulphur?

As the rate of nitrogen fertiliser applied increases the response to sulphur fertiliser also increases, therefore we must pay particular attention to sulphur requirements on heavily stocked farms and when fertilising silage crops.


Sulfur fertilization strategy affects grass yield, nitrogen uptake, and nitrate leaching: A field lysimeter study

Globally and at the European Union level there are mounting concerns regarding nitrogen (N) losses from agricultural systems and pressure to reduce N losses to water and air. Suboptimal plant sulfur (S) availability can reduce plant N efficiency and thereby increase N loss potential. Climate change action demands lower sulfur dioxide emissions thus S deposition levels are at an all-time low.
