Sulfur for Plant Nutrition

R Norton, R Mikkelsen, T Jensen

Sulfur (S) is essential for plant nutrition, but its concentration in plants is the lowest of all the macronutrients. Plants are able to assimilate sulfate and reduce it to essential amino acids, where S is involved in a range of metabolic functions, including protein synthesis. Greater attention needs to be paid to the role of S in balanced crop nutrition in many global regions.
