Can soybeans benefit from ammonium sulfate fertilization?
As legume crops, soybeans normally get most of their nitrogen from the atmosphere. Nevertheless, about 100 pounds of ammonium sulfate at planting can provide the crop a boost before root nodules are actively fixing nitrogen. Ammonium sulfate also supplies sulfur, an essential nutrient to the nodulation process.
