Achieving food security is recognized as a major global challenge, with bodies such as the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the International Fertilizer Association (IFA) promoting agricultural best practices to help growers boost productivity. Sulphur is essential for healthy crop growth. However, soils are increasingly sulphur-deficient as a result of intensive agricultural production and reduced atmospheric sulphur deposition.
