The Sulphur World Symposium is being held in Beijing, China, April 22-24. It is an annual event hosted by The Sulphur Institute in various locations around the world. Presenters from the U.S. will be major contributors to the educational program.

In recent years, more than 200 industry executives have attended from more than 30 countries. It’s attendance is representative of the expanded interest in sulphur for both agricultural and non-agricultural uses. 

An H. J. Baker Tiger-Sul Products representative will make a presentation to the attendees highlighting the ever increasing knowledge about the value of soil applied sulphur for crop yield improvement.  Wesley Haun (CCA, CPAg, CPSS), a research agronomist at H.J. Baker & Bro., Inc. for Tiger-Sul Products, will give the presentation “Sulphur as a Fertilizer.”

“In Beijing we will discuss some of the physical, biological, and chemical interactions of sulphur within the soil and their influence on sulphate availability and uptake by plants,” Haun said. “Optimum sulphur levels in soil improve plant uptake of other nutrients, especially nitrogen and zinc. Plant physiology and metabolism depends on sulphur compounds as they are a component of protein synthesis and enzyme functions. Plants deficient in sulphur have lower yields and reduced grain quality.”
