Using Sulfert 8 on Pastures/Forages

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.

  • Sulphur-fertilized forage increases both the digestibility, and the protein content of the grasses.

  • Yellowing of newly emerged leaves can be evidence of sulphur deficiency.

  • Straw requires 5kg N, 1kg P, 8.6kg K, and 2 kg N per ton of grain.1
