Sulphur deficiency made worse by

  • Acidic soils
  • Light, sandy soils (leaching)
  • Low organic matter
  • Poorly aerated soils (waterlogged soils
  • ) Areas with low industrial emissions

Sulfur is important for

  • Requirement of steady supply in relatively high quantities
  • Important for head development and stress tolerance
  • Major role in crop quality
  • Better inner quality determinants and improved storage quality
