Using Sulfert 8 on Wheat

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 plays an important role in reducing Wheat’s susceptibility to disease. 

  • Increases the plant uptake of Phosphorus, Manganese, and Zinc.1

  • In new growth, sulphur deficiency can be seen when the whole plant or newly emerging leaves go yellow – usually more pronounced between the veins.

  • Sulfert 8’s ammonium source of Nitrogen is less susceptible to Nitrogen loss to volatilisation so it can be applied as a topdressing.
