Sulfur is regarded as the fourth major nutrient input in crop production and is a key component in protein, chlorophyll, and oil in plant tissue. It is also essential for effective crop uptake of nitrogen. Native levels of soil sulfur have been depleting all over the world, higher yielding crops, less atmospheric deposition, and low sulfate P fertilizers have led to an increased need for growers to pay attention to this critical nutrient in their fields.
See how just 10 lbs per acre of sulfur as MST® (Micronized Sulfur Technology) on cotton can make a big difference in crop health and development (all other nutrients balanced). Sulfur deficient plants are shorter and have small, pale leaves indicating less chlorophyll and therefore a lower capacity to produce yield.
