Sulfur fertilizers is an essential plant nutrient required by all crops for optimum production. Plants take up and use S in the sulfate (SO4-S) form, which like nitrate (NO3-N), is very mobile in the soil and is prone to leaching in wet soil conditions, particularly in sandy soils. Sulfur deficiencies are becoming increasingly common around the globe, due to its bleaching properties. Deficiencies can be easily corrected with fertilizers containing sulfate (S04). Generally, S is the third most limiting soil nutrient in cereal, oilseed, and forage crop production. Simply, it is the third most important soil nutrients after nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P).
Sulfur fertilizers play several important functions in the plant such as it helps to the formation of chlorophyll that permits photosynthesis through which plants produce starch, sugars, oils, fats, vitamins, and other compounds, also it helps in synthesis in oil. Additionally, it is useful in the activation of enzymes, which aid in biochemical reactions in the plant. It increases crop yields and improves product quality, both of which determine the market price a farmer would get for his produce. It improves protein and oil percentage in seeds, cereal quality for milling and baking, marketability of dry coconut kernel (copra), quality of tobacco, the nutritive value of forages, etc. Increase in the trend of organic food consumption, depressed commodity prices, regulated pricing policy, and lower farm income are the major restraints for this market.
