How does ammonium sulfate compare against urea in wheat production?

One of the most obvious benefits of ammonium sulfate when compared to urea is that, in addition to nitrogen, it also supplies sulfur. Wheat research has shown that sufficient sulfur levels are needed for maximum test weights,

How much can I expect soil pH to go down when using ammonium sulfate to supply all of my crop’s nitrogen needs?

At rates of several hundred pounds of ammonium sulfate per acre, the acidifying effect of ammonium sulfate would be in the order of hundredths of a pH unit. Based on a nitrogen rate of 140 pounds per

How do ammonium sulfate and elemental sulfur compare when it comes to their effect on soil pH?

When either ammonium sulfate or elemental sulfur is applied to provide the sulfur needs of a crop – with the nitrogen supplied by ammonium sulfate or other ammonium nitrogen fertilizers such as anhydrous ammonia, urea, or ammonium

How much nitrogen does it take to produce a bushel of soybeans?

It takes roughly five pounds of nitrogen to produce one bushel of soybeans. Normally, soybeans can get most of their nitrogen from the air, although this year we have heard several reports of less than optimum nodulation

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

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
