Why Use Triple Sulphur Super?

Triple Sulphur Super is best suited to applications when both phosphate and sulphur are required . Triple Sulphur Super is a cost effective alternative to Single Superphosphate.

The benefits of using Triple Sulphur Super are:

  • A cost-effective, high analysis form of water-soluble phosphate and slow releasing sulphur, allowing you to apply more P and S for less cost.
  • Contains a higher P and S content compared to common alternatives, resulting in significant savings on freight and application costs.
  • Water-soluble P will give an instant phosphate response while the slower releasing elemental S will cater for longer term S requirements.
  • Contains less cadmium and other heavy metals compared to other more common phosphate fertilisers. This makes it an ideal substitute for areas that already have or are developing production limiting heavy metal levels.

Precautions

When applying larger phosphate applications water soluble phosphate such as that contained in TSP can lose efficiency in some soil types that have a limited ability to hold onto phosphate. In these situations we recommend blending TSP with a non-water soluble form of phosphate such as DDPhos Granulated RPR. For more information speak to your Dickie Direct Area Manager.

Phosphorus’s Role in Plants

  • The most important role of phosphorus is the storage and transfer of energy that is generated through photosynthesis along with the metabolism of carbohydrates.
  • Phosphorus is an essential compound of Adenosine Triphosphate (ADP), the energising component driving plant development.
  • Phosphorus deficiency has a huge impact on plant growth and reproduction, reducing the plant processes noted below.
  • Processes aided by phosphorus:
    • Large root growth
    • Early formation of plant shoots
    • Improved stalk and stem strength in crops
    • Improved fruit, vegetable, and grain quality
    • Seed formation
    • Resistance to moisture and colder temperatures

Sulphur's Role in Plants

  • Sulphur is essential in forming plant protein as it is present in cysteine and methionine, two vital amino acids involved in protein synthesis.
  • Key component of coenzymes and vitamins, involved in energy transfer and lipid synthesis.
  • Some sulphur compounds are responsible for the taste and smell of plants, like onions.
  • Sulphur amino acids are at high levels in animal fibres, therefore sufficient sulphur is required for good wool production.
  • Promotes nodule formation in legumes
  • Signs of sulphur deficiency – light green to yellowish coloured young leaves, reduced plant growth rates, plants that are short, small and slender.
