A coming together of Polysulphate research

13 December 2016

The holiday season is a time for coming together. We thought it was about time we brought together for you the scientific papers on Polysulphate research to make them easily available. The result of our collation is the Compendium of Polysulphate Research, now available for download.

Then as now

Interest in Polysulphate is, of course, nothing new. Nor is it restricted to one region of the world.

In our new Compendium, the origins of scientific curiosity for Polysulphate Fertilizer (the trade name for polyhalite) is illustrated by a research paper dating from 1932 documenting work in the state of Texas in the United States. It is interesting to read the protocol and rigor of experimentation with polyhalite all that time ago.

Crossing continents

This early work is complemented by work carried out in India, 85 years later, on the effects of polyhalite as a fertilizer on the yield and quality of the oilseed crops (mustard and sesame) and brassicas (cabbage and cauliflower).

From Europe the work on the value of polyhalite as source of sulphur for oilseed rape and winter wheat is included. East Asia is represented by the recent work on how polyhalite application improves tea yield and quality.

Gathering momentum and respect

With each piece of research the body of knowledge about the importance of polyhalite increases. More and more farmers are coming to know that Polysulphate is an efficient, effective and value-for-money agri-input with powerful effects on yield and quality.

We offer our greetings of this holiday season to all of you and hope for Peace and Goodwill to all Mankind. To that we can add that we wish Polysulphate and Good Agricultural Practice to all Farmed Land!
