Cotton

sulfur-spotlight

Most of America’s cotton is grown on sulfur-deficient soils, including the sandy fields of the coastal plains and silty southern soils that are low in organic matter. Cotton requires sulfur before its first blooms to avoid yield losses – as much as 12 pounds of sulfur per bale of yield. Sulfur and nitrogen are key components of chlorophyll, as well as amino acids that are critical to producing lint.
