Avoiding Deficiency

The Need for Sulfur

A sulfur deficiency in the soil can cause slow growth rates, yellowing leaves, lower fruit production and more. Unfortunately, sulfur deficiencies are becoming more common, so growers must be aware of the need to replace sulfur on a regular basis.

"Based on years of cumulative experience with sulfur testing, almost every soil tested does not have enough sulfur to produce top yields unless it is specifically added as part of the fertility program."
