Sulfur fertilizer is utilized when a plant starts demonstrating sulfur deficiencies, which includes leaves turning pale-yellow or light green. It assists in increasing the oil content of seeds, protein amount in plants and harvested produce, and sugar recovery in sugarcane. It also aids in improving the starch content of tubers, baking quality of wheat, and nutritional quality of forages by providing a balanced nitrogen and sulfur (N:S) ratio. As it is cost-effective, economical, and enhances the crop yield, it finds extensive application in either the soluble or elemental form across the globe.
Sulfur Fertilizers Market Trends:
At present, there is an increase in the number of initiatives undertaken to reduce sulfur emissions on account of their adverse impact on the environment, including deforestation. This, along with the rising awareness about soil deterioration caused by conventional agriculture practices and limited arable land, represents one of the key factors positively impelling the growth of the market. Sulfur fertilizers support the essential growth functions in plants, which include enzyme activity, nitrogen metabolism, and protein and oil synthesis. They also improve yield and promote early produce with higher oil and protein levels. Apart from this, there is a considerable shortage of food worldwide due to the increasing global population. This is positively influencing the overall sales of sulfur fertilizers. Furthermore, as the agriculture sector plays a pivotal role in an economy, governments of several countries are extending their support to agriculture by offering grants and subsidies, which, in turn, is propelling the market growth. Moreover, leading players are introducing advanced fertilizers, such as elemental sulfur enriched NPK fertilizers, that can be applied on nutrient-poor soil with a light texture. These innovations are creating a favorable market outlook.
