Pyrite: an important source of sulphur for calcareous soils


Indian Farming 41(4): 6-7
Pyrite: an important source of sulphur for calcareous soils
The significance of pyrites as a source of S for calcareous soils is discussed. Results of trials showed that elemental S was the most effective in increasing yields of several crops on calcareous soils in Rajasthan. Pyrites were more effective than gypsum in increasing groundnut yields.
