Technology for the production of ammonium thiosulfate (ATS) was supplied by the American company ThioSolv.
At 8 weeks after planting, 2g/kg ammonium thiosulfate [[(N[H.sub.4]).sub.2][S.sub.2][O.sub.3]] or 1g/kg sodium cyanide (NaCN), each in 150 mL solution, was added to the three plant species separately.

To meet crop sulfur requirements, ammonium thiosulfate is recommended at 6 to 12 gallons per acre for row and vegetable crops, and 5 to 10 gallons per acre for trees and vines using soil injection and surface banding, or 15 to 20 gallons per acre in a broadcast spray (www.tkinet.com/thiosul.html).
