Yield Can Be Optimized With Additional Sulfur And Chloride

  • Sometimes, what is thought to be a nitrogen deficiency is really a sulfur or chloride deficiency.
  • Both sulfur and chloride are mobile nutrients. With heavy rains, sulfur in the sulfate form and chloride can leach through the soil.
  • Low organic matter and coarse-textured, eroded soils are generally lower in available sulfur and chloride, which affects yields.
  • Ammonium sulfate is the preferred source for sulfur, and potassium chloride is the preferred source for chloride. Both nutrients are often applied as a starter with the seed.
