Granular sulfur
About product

Granular sulfur 25 kg . Fraction average 4.5 mm. Sulfur as a chemical compound plays a very important role in life and proper development. It is used to acidify the soil. Its task is to help in the absorption of nitrogen from the soil. It is used, among others, in the cultivation of apple trees, which protects against a disease called apple scab.

Sulfur is an element common in nature and as a component of sulfur amino acids (methionine, cysteine, cystine) it plays a very important role in shaping the quality of vegetable protein. It is a component of most phosphate fertilizers.

Soil acidification using granulated sulfur.

Granulated sulfur works great as a substance stabilizing and lowering the soil pH for crops that require extremely low soil pH. Granular sulfur works slowly and it takes some time for it to be fully effective in acidifying the soil. By applying small doses in the autumn, the plants in the acidified field can be planted in the spring. When using granulated sulfur in the amount of 2.5-3.5 kg / 10 m2. a one-year grace period in tillage should be kept. Granulated sulfur can also be used when the plants are already planted, but a single application must not exceed 100g/10 m2. Sulfur is commonly used to acidify the soil, for blueberry, rhododendron and azalea farms. More on soil acidification with granulated sulfur in our blog article .

Greenhouse disinfection using granulated sulfur

Granulated sulfur is also used in greenhouses and foil tunnels for disinfection. It is carried out immediately after the end of the vegetation period by gassing with sulfur dioxide. Sulfur must be mixed with potassium nitrate or potassium permanganate. The mixture should be evenly distributed in the greenhouse or tunnels on metal sheets or trays. We set the mixture on fire starting from the tray farthest from the entrance. This process should be carried out at a temperature of 20 degrees. After burning off the granulated sulfur mixture, after 24 hours, the room should be ventilated and the plants should be grubbed up. The applied dose should be 15 g/m3 of the volume of the object. Sulfur fumes are poisonous. Do not stay in the greenhouse during the treatment. More on disinfection in greenhouses using granulated sulfur in the article on our blog .
