Sulfur-CARB is a source of very fine elemental sulfur used to facilitate oxidation of soil nutrients and for pH reduction in the root zone of crops. Sulfur-CARB contains ACS to provide energy for soil bacteria that oxidize sulfur for rapid and safe reaction in the root zone. Nutrient availability is increased for plant use.
1- Sulfur-CARB is a unique blend of very fine elemental sulfur and ACS. The small particle size of the Sulfur material ranges between 1 – 7 microns. The very small size helps with the application strategy and allows the mixture to be directly sprayed onto the soil or injected into irrigation systems with agitation for delivery with water. The addition of the ACS carrier provides immediate energy for
soil microbes that have a requirement for energy. Most microbes have a 40% carbon content in their body.
2 - Sulfur-CARB use can be adjusted to address incoming bicarbonate/carbonate loads in irrigation water and to address resident soil high pH issues. Calculators are available to predict the amount of material to use with the irrigation or soil application strategies. The small particle size insures a quick oxidation of the elemental sulfur when applied to the soil. The reaction (oxidation of sulfur) occurs
in the soil solution and not in the irrigation system. Elemental Sulfur has an acidity equivalent to 3 times the amount of pure sulfuric acid. Sulfur-CARB increases the soil oxidation potential which leads to better nutrient availability.
3 - Sulfur-CARB is safe and can be applied over the surface of many crops without issue. Elemental Sulfur must migrate into the soil solution for the oxidation of the sulfur to produce sulfuric acid for pH reduction. Water moves the Sulfur down and Thiobacillus sp. complete the oxidation process. Sulfur-CARB can be applied to soil surfaces when incorporation is not possible (no till), and the small
particle size will move with irrigation water. Larger granular or prilled sulfur will oxidize in the soil but incorporation is a must. The larger particles of granular or prilled elemental sulfur when spread onto the soil have zones of high sulfur concentration and broad areas between the prills with no sulfur. Dispersing the very small elemental sulfur particles throughout the soil is readily achieved
