​The focus of this presentation is to review sulfur (S) basics among row crops, what our current system of S management looks like, and what innovative tools exist to manage S. We will review the differences between “sulfate” and “elemental” sulfur and how simultaneously supplying both enhances the ability to ensure season-long S availability. MicroEssentials fertilizer will be used as an example to illustrate the importance of season-long S supply.
