Sulfur is an important component of enzymes and other proteins, and is required for chlorophyll formation.
Sulfur and yield
Sulfur is important for yield, as you can see in studies in Italy.
Sulfur and relative yield
Trials in Germany show that foliar applications can be more effective than soil applied fertilizer.
Sulfur and TSS
Sulfur also increases fruit total soluble solids content, as shown in studies in Italy.
General guidelines for sulfur application
Uptake of sulfur is around 1.2lb/t of fruit. It is required throughout the season, and should be timed similar to nitrogen supplies.
