Crops must have sulfur to thrive. The efficient delivery of sulfur to food plants is key to maximizing nutritional quality. When sulfur is lacking, the maximum potential for an entire crop can be seriously reduced. Quality. Yield. Responsible nutrient management. Farmers want it all, and now they have accesS.

Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers (ACLF) answers that need with the launch of their new product, accesS. This high sulfur formulation takes nutrient management to a new level, with a lower salt index and higher sulfur analysis. And this is accomplished while using less product.

With higher demands on crop production, sulfur deficiency is a problem across crops and regions, but the outcome is the same: stunted, withering, and yellowing plants that don't reach their fullest potential. Sulfur is a key component needed to produce nutritious, high-yielding fruits and vegetables. That importance increases in sandy soils where the mobility within the soil structure creates an immediate need for a good sulfur source.

As a building block for protein and energy in a plant, sulfur supplementation plays a strategic role in satisfying the loss of naturally-occurring sulfur in the soil. Sulfur depletion is happening quickly and that's why the accesS product is so critical.

"If you have deficient sulfur, you're going to have less yield, poorer quality and a crop that's more subject to disease and insect infestation," said Jay Castleman, agronomist with ACLF. "Remember, sulfur builds energy and if you have more energy, sulfur balance will be strategic in size formation and can help with vigor."

According to Castleman, conventional ATS fertilizer products often miss the mark when it comes to effectiveness in the plant. Often, only 10 to 25 percent of applied fertilizer is actually used for its intended purpose.

"With Agro-Culture's processing, a greater percentage of our applied product will find utility in the plant rather than being lost to the atmosphere or leaching into the environment. We term that as efficiency," Castleman said. "And because of the utility of our product, in most cases we can use 60 percent of normal treatment volumes and get the same yields."

Petroleum- and industrial-based by-product fertilizers in the marketplace today merely muddy the waters when it comes to providing what crops need.

Environmental regulations across the country are beginning to limit the amount of materials producers can put on their crops. Research has shown that the ACLF MicroLink family of fertilizers can put farmers' and consumers' minds at ease.
