The Q&A Archives: Water has High Sulfur Content

Question: The water supply for my vegetable and ornamental gardens has a high sulfur content. Will the sulfur cause problems for my plants?

Answer: Sulfur is a plant nutrient; however, an excess in the soil can lower soil pH. Though the sulfur in your water will probably not lead to a buildup in the soil, you might want to have your soil tested for both sulfur content and pH. Repeat the test every few years to see if there is any change.
