Supplementary notes

The source states that: "Data on sulphur use have been collected since 1993 when only 3-6% of the cereal crop areas and 8% of the oilseed rape area received a sulphur application. By 2015, 48-62% of the area of cereals and 73% of oilseed rape received a dressing of sulphur (a decrease of 3% on 2014). Overall applications of sulphur on tillage crops remained unchanged between 2014 and 2015 at 31 kg SO3/ha while applications on grass decreased in 2015 to 3 kg/ha. This low overall rate on grass is a result of the low dressing cover, with only 10% of grass receiving a sulphur dressing."
