AdvanSix’s agronomy experts are available to answer your questions about how to get the most out of your ammonium sulfate investment. Mercedes Gearhart has overseen agronomic research at AdvanSix for more than 20 years, and has a wealth of knowledge about fertilizer use efficiency and improving crop yields. Check out the questions asked below or ask your own question.

On soil with a pH of 8.5 and electrical conductivity of 0.13 mmho/cm, would ammonium sulfate be a good fertilizer source for row crops?


Given the high pH and low electrical conductivity, the soil in question is likely a calcareous soil with a limited amount of sodium carbonate. Accordingly, ammonium sulfate would be a desirable fertilizer source for row crops – not only for supplying essential plant nutrients like nitrogen and sulfur, but also for increasing phosphorus and micronutrient availability to those crops.
