Brief Project Summary:

This research significantly adds to the knowledge of the sulfur status of soybean crops in Maryland and the management potential alleviate S deficiency and increase soybean yield and quality. It addresses practical questions related to the agronomic management of S enhance soybean seed protein-amino acid balance by increasing the proportion of S-containing methionine and cysteine amino acids. Research investigates economical methods of S application, including soil application of gypsum, foliar application of Epsom salts and integration of brassica cover crop mixes. It also aims to evaluate soil tests to find one to predict on which soils crops will benefit from S applications.

Key Benefactors:
