Using Sulfert 8 on Canola

Fertilizer guidelines are influenced by numerous variables including crop type, production methods, crop rotation, soil texture, rainfall, and crop production potential. The following guidelines are approximations based on the amount of N and S removed when the crop is harvested only. Fertplan assumes no responsibility or liability for the information supplied.

Nitrogen Requirement

Sulfert 8 Application

Canola has a high Sulphur requirement - Sulphur availability should be roughly 1 kg of sulphur to 4 kg nitrogen, Canola is particularly responsive to sulphur.1

Liquid fertilizers such as Sulfert 8 are commonly used in no till, banded applications in the Western Cape, South Africa.

20 25 kg N ha-1 is applied at startup, with the remainder as a topdressing.

A sulphur deficiency can be observed when leaves redden along their edges and become concave in shape. In addition, the youngest leaves change colour from light green to yellow and their veins darken.

* Assuming a 1 ton ha-1 target yield
