Sulfur

Sulfur is an important element for most plants. For example, you can find sulfur in the structure of amino acids and proteins.
Sulfur causes the soil to be disinfected, due to its antifungal properties.
After nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, sulfur is the fourth most commonly used element for plants. Considering the beneficial effects of sulfur on the elimination of grape powdery mildew, experts recommend using it to protect plants and eliminate white grubs and insects. Sulfur reduces the soil pH, which improves the plant’s absorption of soil elements.

Effects of sulfur fertilizers on gardening and farming products
Sulfur fertilizers contribute to plant growth by improving the absorption of highly consumed micronutrients in the soil, and increase the yield and quality of the product. Sulfur fertilizer nutrients activate the useful soil bacteria and, practically, facilitate the biological oxidation in the soil. This fertilizer improves the plant health and contributes to environmental protection through the disinfection of the soil and reduces the use of chemical pesticides.

Sulfur in the soil
Sulfur is found in the soil in the form of organic and inorganic compounds. Sulfur compounds are mostly organic compounds that cannot be absorbed by the plant. Sulfur only can be absorbed when the compounds were converted into sulfate during the process of mineralization. Mineral sulfur mixed with livestock fertilizers, especially granular chicken fertilizers are converted into sulfate soon underground due to the soil moisture.
