Ammonium sulphate is a nitrogen-rich fertilizer that supports the rapid greening of plants and lawn. It is especially effective in leafy crops and vegetables as it contains 21% nitrogen and 24% sulfur.
The primary use of ammonium sulfate is fertilizer for alkaline soils: ammonium ion is released in the soil, which forms a small amount of acid, lowering the soil pH balance, while providing the necessary nitrogen for plant growth. It is also used as an effective killing agent for clover.
Like grain and forage crops, vegetables also need nitrogen and sulfur for photosynthesis and protein formation. Many commercial vegetable growers use ammonium sulfate as part of their base fertilizer mixture.
Ammonium sulphate is a good source of iron for plants - by absorbing water, nitrates move freely towards the plant roots. Sulfur also acts as a soil conditioner and helps reduce the sodium content of the soil.
