The rate of oxidation of micronized elemental sulphur in three soils was measured over a range of temperatures between 2 and 20°C. Temperature had a marked effect with a Q10 (temperature coefficient) between 1.9–3.1. The period for 50% oxidation varied between 6–10 days at 20°C to between 36–42 days at 2°C. All the oxidation curves showed an initial lag. At 20°C the oxidation rate was four times that of flowers of sulphur and was related to the smaller particle size. Additives (wetting and… CONTINUE READING
