Importance
 
Feeding the World
 
By 2050, increases in the global population and calorie consumption will double food demand. To achieve and sustain the level of food production needed to meet this growth, global agriculture will increase crop yield substantially. Judicious application in sulphur-deficient soils, is a cost effective way to produce more food and crops.
· The Sulphur Institute has conducted field trials in India, where rice is a major food staple for over one billion people. Research demonstrates an opportunity to increase per capita supply by 20 percent through the addition of sulphur fertilization.
· In the North American Corn Belt, university research shows sulphur fertilization increases corn yields at least 11 percent.
 
Reclaims Marginal Soils
 
As the world's population continues to soar, we will add another 2.5 billion people in the next 40 years and more than 60% of the world's population will be living in big cities within the next 15 years.
Sulphur can be used to reclaim marginal soils for productive cultivation and slow the loss of farmland.
Sulphur improves the plant root environment and maintains proper growing conditions in alkaline soils, which significantly increases crop growth, and thus food production.
