The Sulfur Dilemma
Lower availability & greater need
Today's cropping systems require more sulfur than ever before. With improved air quality standards, sulfur emissions have been greatly reduced and decreased the amount of sulfur that is deposited within rainfall.
Many fertilizers only offer sulfate sulfur, which leaves plants vulnerable to the effects of leaching; a depletion of nutrients caused by rain and irrigation.
Demand has increased. Supply should too.
Sulfur requirements are also higher than in the past due to increased crop yields, creating a potential imbalance. Sulfur fertilizer is critical to provide balanced crop nutrition and ensure today's high yield systems keep having high yields.
Our sulfur has a side-kick
Two forms of sulfur
MicroEssentials greatly reduces sulfur losses found in typical fertilizer blends by providing two forms of sulfur (sulfate sulfur and elemental sulfur).
This allows for the immediately available sulfate sulfur for early season growth while the oxidation of elemental S provides sulfur throughout the growing season.
As SO42- is absorbed by the plants' root system, elemental sulfur acts as a back up, converting into sulfate over time and filling in the nutritional gaps.
This unique pairing ensures roots have a continuous supply of sulfur throughout the entire growing season.
Enter, Fusion® Technology
MicroEssentials is the first-of-its-kind, micronutrient enhanced fertilizer combining four key nutrients into a single, nutritionally balanced granule, ensuring season-long sulfur delivery to each and every plant. It’s precision and quality you can only get from the Mosaic Company.
