SULPHUR

* Almost one third of Irish soil is deficient in Sulphur.

* Proper treatment of Sulphur deficient grassland soils will boost output of grass/silage by up to 30% over the growing season.

* Cereal crops also give a response to Sulphur though not as startling as grassland.

We in GRASSLAND FERTILIZERS (KILKENNY) LTD are conscious of the Sulphur problem so we have added Sulphur to many of our Products (See Product List)
it costs a little extra but a small price to pay for the extra production that will accrue.

N.B. Sulphur should be put out only where it is required and should not exceed advised spreading rates.
