Thus, sulfur is an important parameter in the choice of new technology and in determining practically enforceable environmental laws. Sulfur is an important plant nutrient because it is a vital component of several proteins. Its shortage stunts the growth of plants and reduces crop yield. Plant nutrient sulphur-a review of nutrient balance, environmental impact and fertilizers S. P. Ceccotti 1 Fertilizer research vol pages – () Cite this articleCited by: By Rob Norton, Robert Mikkelsen and Tom Jensen Sulfur (S) is essential for plant nutrition, but its concentration in plants is the lowest of all the macronutrients. Plants ar e able to assimilate sulfate and reduce it to essential amino acids, where S is involved in a range of metabolic functions, including protein synthesis.   Sulphur is a key constituent of certain amino acids, proteins, and other biochemicals. Sulphur is abundant in some minerals and rocks and has a significant presence in soil, water, and the atmosphere. Atmospheric sulphur occurs in various compounds, some of which are important air pollutants (see Chapter 16).Author: Bill Freedman.

Until recently, nitrogen (N), phosphorus (P) and potassium (K) were considered as main nutrients for plants. However, studies of world leading experts in field of agrochemistry showed that sulphur (S) has to be included in this row. S - is vital nutrient for plants. S improves N and P assimilation by plants, increases draught and desease resistance. Sulfur (S) is a key element that plays a pivotal role in plant growth and development. Management of S in crop plant nutrition is essential due to its crucial role in fundamental processes such as. Sulfur (S) is an essential plant nutrient; however, its content in the soil is only about 10% of that of the total N [4]. Therefore, investigations on the S nutrition of plants are rather few. The ImporTance of Sulphur aS a planT nuTrIenT. The Sulphur cycle Sulphur is present in various forms in the environment. Up to 95% of the total sulphur in the soil is associated with organic matter. Other sources of sulphur in soils are animal manure, irrigation water and, close to the coast or industrial areas, the atmosphere, where.

A field experiment was conducted to study the impact of Sulphur(S) and Phosphorus (P) on yield, nutrient status of soil and their contents in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan) during the year Seven treatments were studied in Factorial Randomized Block Design with three by: Sulfur (S) is an essential mineral nutrient required for plant growth and development. It is found in amino acids, vitamins/cofactors, electron transport chains, and a host of stress response compounds. Sulfur is an essential nutrient required for plant growth and development, therefore sulfur containing fertilizers are nowadays used worldwide to increase crop yield and quality.
