Is it possible to create a reservoir of sulfur in the soil through the continuous application of elemental sulfur?
Yes, it is possible to create a reservoir of sulfur through long-term application of elemental sulfur. Be aware, though, that elemental sulfur oxidation produces acidity. So, with time, it may gradually decrease soil pH to the point that liming may be needed (or, if already in a liming program, rates may need bumped up).
