Can you afford to ignore sulphur deficiency?
In financially challenging times it probably feels like an easy choice to cut back on the cost of inputs. But, that can be false economy. The saving made on sulphur, can cost you dearly in yield – up to 30% losses according to AFBI.
Whilst Yara would always encourage you to undertake soil sampling so that you apply a fertilizer appropriate to the needs of your land and crops, in the case of sulphur deficiency, it’s almost unnecessary. We know soil is sulphur deficient. Do you know the consequences of not dealing with that deficiency? It could cost you as much as £36/acre!
But there’s even more good news with including sulphur in with your nitrogen dressing: sulphur improves nitrogen use efficiency. In other words, investment in sulphur means your nitrogen investment goes further as well. And you’ll see less wastage to the environment…it’s a win-win!
