Sulphur management
on winter wheat

By Cory Cowan
Crop Sales Specialist
AGRIS Co-operative - Chatham

 
Sulphur (S) is an essential nutrient that does enhance yield. Our data shows a six-bushel yield response. It also imparts desirable baking qualities to milled flour. The plant available form is the sulphate (SO4) form. There is a sulphur cycle in the soil that behaves much like the nitrogen cycle. It transforms various organic and inorganic sulphur compounds into the sulphate form.

Essay Contest



The theme for this year’s 4-H Essay Contest is: “How can co-operatives demonstrate their value to the next generation of agriculturists?" The contest is open to all Ontario high school students who are members of 4-H.
 
You can get started by visiting the GROWMARK or 4-H Ontario website to learn the full details on the program. Fill out the requested title page, write an impressive essay and email or mail your package to GROWMARK Ontario region office for a chance to become the Ontario provincial winner for 2018.
 
First place will receive $500 and the winner’s 4-H Association will also receive $300. Two runners-up each win $125.
 
Essays should be approximately 500 words, typed and double-spaced. The postmarked entry deadline for Ontario 4-H members is May 15. 
 
The essay contest has been in place for many years, sponsored by the GROWMARK System and FS member co-operatives, in conjunction with US state FFA leaders and 4-H Ontario, to help young people develop their writing skills, learn about current issues affecting agriculture, and understand the unique role of co-operatives.
