Sulvaris/Breton Plots Field Day

The University of Alberta Breton Plots were established in 1930 as a long-term continuous experiment evaluating crop rotations, fertilization, and liming. A lot of applied and fundamental research has come from these plots, including the importance of sulfur in crop production in these soils. The team at Sulvaris are grateful to help support the important research at […]

Urea MST on Sulfur Deficiencies

Crop, or no crop? In this case, sulfur is the deciding factor between the two. Depicted below shows what a relatively small application of sulfur (25kg S/ha) can do for a canola crop in a deficient soil. In this trial at the University of Alberta Breton Plots, we are seeing a greater response to sulfur fertilizer than […]

CCT Emissions Study With U of A

Global food security relies heavily on nitrogen fertilizers to meet growing population food requirements which comes with a large carbon footprint. Nitrogen fertilizers applied to the soil have many loss pathways that not only reduce a grower’s bottom line due to yield reductions but also impact the surrounding environment releasing greenhouse gas emissions (GHG’s) into […]

TFI Sustainability Report

The fertilizer industry is working to achieve continuous improvement on environmental, economic, and social outcomes as seen in The Fertilizer Institute’s Fertilizer Industry Sustainability Report which represents 92% of the nitrogen, phosphate, and potash production capacity and 33% of the retail sector in the United States. From 2019 through 2021, companies in this report invested an […]

Sulfur Deficiency on Leaves

Sulfur deficiency can express itself as pale green coloration and yellow stripes on the new leaves (left). It can also be visible as a shorter crop and smaller ears. Deficiencies can be highly variable within a field and greatly impact crop production. MAP+MST® is used as the sole sulfur source for picture on the right. (Stoneville MS, […]

Sulfur Deficiencies

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 […]
