Band-applied elemental sulfur to enhance the phytoavailability of phosphorus in alkaline calcareous soils

  title={Band-applied elemental sulfur to enhance the phytoavailability of phosphorus in alkaline calcareous soils},
  author={Thomas H Deluca and Earl O Skogley and Richard E. Engel},
  journal={Biology and Fertility of Soils},
Applications of elemental sulfur (S°) increase the phytoavailability of P in alkaline high-Ca soils through the production of H2SO4 which is induced by microbial oxidation of S. Concentrated S bands, allowing “time release” acidity, may aid in maintaining the phytoavailability of both residual and fertilizer P. Greenhouse and field studies were therefore conducted to determine the effectiveness of band-applied S° for increasing the phytoavailability of residual and fertilizer P for spring wheat… CONTINUE READING
