Fall vs. spring application: what is best?

Sulphur is an essential nutrient that agricultural crops require for healthy growth and development. Typically, growers apply elemental sulphur in the fall to allow more time to oxidize. However, unlike traditional methods, Bio-Sul Premium Plus has flexible timing, which means you decide when it’s right for your farm. Learn about the benefits and differences between fall and spring applications.

Fall application

Springtime is a busy time of year for farmers, with lots of work to do and not much time or money to get it all done. Fall application may be your route if you’re worried about the stressful spring-seeding window. While performing other fall fieldwork, Bio-Sul can be applied to reduce downtime and increase the efficiency of your operation. Starting in the fall allows you to get a jump on the next season and save time in the spring.

Spring application

There are many considerations in the spring, like field preparation, timing and weather, but Bio-Sul can help with flexible application before or after seeding. Unlike elemental sulphurs manufactured by other companies, Bio-Sul is blended with Class 1 compost and does not require the freeze and thaw cycle to become available to the crop. The unique variable particle size means a portion of the Bio-Sul is immediately available for uptake by the crop, even in the case of spring application in the first year. If the field conditions are right, spring application will benefit your crops throughout the year.

We know that each season presents its own set of concerns, and we are here to help you with any questions you may have during the spring and fall. Bio-Sul Premium Plus allows flexible application and can help you achieve higher yields by ensuring nutrient availability and maximizing your fertilizer program.
