Book: Sulfur: A Missing Link between Soils, Crops, and Nutrition, Agronomy Monographs 50, 2008
Published by: American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America, Soil Science Society of America

 

A current snapshot of the relationship between sulfur and nutrition in crops, animals, and humans. Readers will benefit from an up-to-date analysis of how the environmental sulfur cycle relates to specific crops and their nutritional needs. Chapters in this book also explore the interplay between sulfur and the dietary needs of animals and humans. Previous books have focused mainly on the molecular biology and biochemistry of sulfur metabolism and have not examined the central role of this nutrient as a link between crop yield and quality, animal feed value, and human diet.
