Bio-Sul Premium Plus – The product is elemental sulphur that is blended with finished compost. Typically elemental sulphur is manufactured into pastilles with bentonite clay which is spread onto the soil surface in the fall for the following spring i.e. Tiger 90 or Keg River. In our process, the compost serves to break down the elemental sulphur which in it’s raw form comes out of the sour gas in the oilfield in almost a mineral like state. The compost breaks down the hard material, reduces the dusting and risk of fire typically associated with elemental sulphur. We also believe that the microbial activity is having some net benefit to the whole process of turning elemental sulphur into sulphate in the soil, a form of nutrient which is available to the plant! From a farmers point of view, we can take this unique product which is very cost efficient, spread it in large amounts on the soil in the spring or fall for that year’s crop, and get our source of sulphur from that for many years. We project the product can meet the sulphur needs of all of producers crops for the next 4 to 6 years at the rates we are using. Conversion of elemental sulphur to sulphate is a function of moisture, temperature, oxygen and particle size. What this means is that the better the growing conditions, the more conversion you will get. Also the variable particle size inherent in our product means that the finer particles in the application will convert almost immediately, and the larger and larger particles will convert more slowly over time. Therefore we can afford to put a large amount of S in the “bank” and let it become available when it is most needed. It does not leach or become mobile in the soil until it converts. Getting ammonium sulphate out of the seeders for producers is a big win, since it’s a bulky, troublesome fertilizer to handle. This greatly improves a farmers logistics on their farm.
