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.

  • South African soils that are suitable for producing maize have a considerable lack of sulphur due to low organic matter, low pH and low clay content. Sulfert 8 is rich in sulphur, which it contains in the sulphate form, facilitating rapid absorption and the prompt correction of Sulphur deficiency.1
