SuperCal SO4 Success

Recently, we received an update from a cooperator involved with our ‘Prove It’ strip trial program. SuperCal SO4 was applied at 200 lbs/acre this spring to a farm located in northern Iowa in advance of corn planting and the results so far are visually stunning. 

Sulfur is increasingly being recognized as the fourth major plant nutrient after the “big three” of N, P and K. Its importance in agriculture is becoming more widely accepted as the supply of S in older fertilizer/pesticide chemistry and that supplied from the atmosphere can no longer be counted upon. 

Low levels of sulfur in the soil limit the efficiency of added nitrogen, which means if you are applying more N to overcome yellow plants and slow early season growth, you throwing your money away. Nitrogen and sulfur deficiencies are commonly confused, but sulfur deficiency is easily identified by yellowing of the upper leaves (as opposed to lower, older leaves with N deficiency) and interveinal yellowing in the youngest leaves. 

What should be added in this case is sulfur from a source that provides sulfate (SO4), which is the form of sulfur that plants uptake. Nitrogen and sulfur interact closely and often in the synthesis of proteins in the plant; the benefits from having the proper ratio of the two nutrients cannot be overstated on overall plant health and subsequent yield.

Here are a few photos from the farm showing control strips vs. SuperCal SO4 strips:

SO4 for Turf

Because the healthiest turf comes from the healthiest soil, SO4 is made from 95% pure natural-mined gypsum, the purest available, and pelletized in two sizes idealized for green or fairway/tee box applications. Improve soil structure, increase rooting depth, and enhance watering efficiency by 25-100% as SO4's high-quality calcium removes harmful magnesium from your soil. SO4 stimulates soil biology, reducing thatch and improving water infiltration. Root depth is improved as the calcium and sulfur in SO4 work down into the soil profile, creating more pore space and spreading vital nutrients throughout. Less-frequent watering and fertilizing are necessary, and because of the purity of SO4, you can apply without any special licenses, warning signs or re-entry intervals. Our specialized pellets require far less product per application, so be sure to use our product calculator to determine your needs.

SO4

When looking for a way to increase your bottom line, we believe in starting at ground level. SO4 delivers vital sulfur and calcium to your soil, so you have a solid, healthy foundation for your crops. Calcium improves soil structure, aeration and drainage, resulting in increased water infiltration and reduced soil surface crusting and improved seedling emergence. SO4 also helps break up compacted soil, critical for increasing rooting depth. It helps stabilize organic matter, decreases nitrogen loss to the atmosphere, and so much more. See the custom calculator below to get started on improving your soil - and your yield – today.
