Why is Polysulphate® a good source of sulphur? 

Polysulphate™ releases sulphate for double the number of days compared to other forms of sulphur. An independent trial by the University of Nottingham compared the nutrient release pattern of various sulphur fertilisers. Polysulphate gave the most prolonged release of plant-available sulphur - up to 50 days post-application – which gives the best match with the rate of crop uptake and minimises the risk of leaching.

How available to plants are the nutrients S, K, Mg and Ca in Polysulphate®?

All the nutrients are fully available to plants.

Is Polysulphate® fully soluble?

Yes, Polysulphate is fully soluble.

Considering the slower rate of dissolution of Polysulphate® in water, are the nutrients released sufficiently to plants?

Yes, we do not see a lesser uptake by plants, even in small plots, where flow of nutrients is relatively higher than soil.

Is Polysulphate® only available as a straight?

No, we supply Polysulphate® in a wide range of prescription NS, NPKS and NKS blended compounds. An example of some of the grades are below.

 

Need a Carbon Footprint?
Our aim is to provide specific carbon footprints for our products, improving accuracy for recording and reporting. NUTRI-CO2OL, our independently ADAS verified carbon footprint model, was developed to account for changes in raw material sourcing, production and blending sites.
