In this episode of the Nutrient Management Podcast, three U of M researchers discuss sulfur.

  • How has atmospheric sulfur deposition changed over time and why does it matter for farmers?
  • How did the dry conditions this year impact sulfur availability? Do dry soils mean sulfur responses will be greater? 
  • Do dry soils affect which source of sulfur growers should use? 
  • What do we know about interactions between sulfur and other nutrients? 
  • What should farmers thinking about applying sulfur for the 2022 crop keep in mind?
  • Dan Kaiser, Extension nutrient management specialist
  • Paulo Pagliari, Extension nutrient management specialist - Lamberton
  • Jeff Vetsch, researcher, Southern Research and Outreach Center - Waseca
