Keg85S can serve as the main sulfur nutrient source if it is regularly applied as part of a nutrient management program. However, if soil sulfur levels are very deficient, or if elemental sulfur is being applied for the first time, inputs must be augmented by a form of soluble sulfate to ensure immediate sulfate needs are met (especially in the case of high sulfur demand crops such as Canola). After repeated applications of elemental sulfur, use of AMS can successfully be reduced or eliminated.
Keg85S can be applied:
- Alone or blended with other fertilizers – spring or fall
- In soil amendment and pH adjustment strategies
Application rate and method:
Keg85S can be banded or broadcasted; broadcasting in the fall has the benefit of exposing pastilles to freeze-thaw and moisture over winter for more thorough disintegration.
The application rate is based on agronomic recommendations from soil tests & crop removal rates of sulfur. Repeat applications of Keg85S improves soil populations of sulfur-processing bacteria – the soil becomes more efficient in converting elemental sulfur to sulfate.
