Can ammonium sulfate be used in no-till systems?

Yes, as it resists nitrogen loss from volatilization. Residue left on the soil surface in conservation-till systems, such as no-till systems, can promote volatilization when urea and urea-containing fertilizers like UAN solutions are broadcast without being incorporated into

May ammonium sulfate be used in pop-up fertilization?

Yes. However, it is important to make sure you do not exceed the maximum amount of nitrogen (N) plus potassium oxide (K2O) recommended for your soil and crop conditions in order to avoid salt injury.  As a

How much lime is needed to neutralize the acidity created by 200 pounds of ammonium sulfate?

Based on the Association of Official Analytical Chemists’ (AOAC) adopted figures, in order to neutralize 200 pounds of ammonium sulfate per acre, 226 pounds of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) per acre would be required (5.4 kilograms of CaCO3

10 Great Reasons to Use Sulf-N Ammonium Sulfate

Here are 10 great reasons to use Sulf-N ammonium sulfate: Honeywell is the world’s largest single-site producer of ammonium sulfate, and a global leader in agronomic research and promotion of this product University-proven across a broad geography of field and

How does ammonium sulfate compare with other nitrogen sources when it comes to soil acidification and liming needs?

While ammonium sulfate is more acidifying than anhydrous ammonia, urea, or ammonium nitrate, its acidifying effect on soil is significantly less than traditionally assumed. If applied to supply 100 percent of a crop’s nitrogen needs, ammonium sulfate

How do ammonium sulfate and gypsum differ?

While both materials contain 100% sulfate sulfur, there are key differences: One is largely a fertilizer, and the other is largely a soil amendment. Sulf-N® ammonium sulfate is an established fertilizer in U.S. crop production, used for
