IARN — Sulfur is an essential component of plant growth and is often considered the fourth major nutrient behind N, P, and K. Calcium Products is once again here to help.
SO4 pelletized gypsum from Calcium Products supplies a strong initial release of sulfur followed by a steady supply throughout the growing season, delivering the right of amount of sulfur to perfectly match plant needs for yield-maximizing plant growth. According to the company’s website, SO4 is mined and manufactured in northwest Iowa from one of the purest gypsum sources in the world. It is finely ground and pelletized to achieve a balance between solubility and pellet strength.
SO4 provides many benefits. Calcium Products says that a compilation of 67 trials across the Midwest shows SO4 on average increases corn yield by 15.4 bu/acre compared to no sulfur. Additionally, SO4’s consistent pellet size allows it to be blended and applied with other dry fertilizers, which means it doesn’t require a separate application. It can be applied pre-plant in the spring, in-season via top dress or post-harvest in the fall.
There are plenty more benefits from utilizing SO4 that you can read about on Calcium Products’ website, calciumproducts.com.
