Drexel has been serving growers since 1972
Drexel Chemical Company strives to make a quality product at an affordable cost to growers. Since the company’s inception in 1972, Drexel has been a staple in the agricultural chemical industry.
Drexel Sales Representatives are available as well. Sales Representatives are a great resource for all growers to use, for questions, concerns, and inquiries about specific products. Growers’ dedication to Drexel Chemical Company has made the company soar to new heights and reach goals. Without the growers, this could have never been possible.
Drexel has positioned itself as a leader in product formulation development for the following.
Water Dispersible Granules
Dry flowable granules are comprised of finely ground particles in order to achieve maximum dispersion, suspension, and coverage. Drexel’s water soluble granules are properly sized for coarse and fine fractions. This helps to minimize dust and increase efficient handling and mixing of the product. Our water soluble granules contain the highest achievable active ingredient levels obtainable in a water soluble formulation.
Utilizing our unique milling process, Drexel offers a line of water soluble formulations that are ground for the lowest achievable particle size. This helps for maximum coverage, suspension, and dispersion as a spraying material.
Drexel’s product line of dissolvable concentrates are made from very pure organic solvent carriers, which allow maximum active ingredient concentrations to be formulated. Since these are true solutions, no insoluble materials are present, which could result in plugging of nozzles. Careful control of the blending and surfactant properties allow for easy mixing of the products in water.

Sulfur for Plant Health
The amount of sulfur in plants is a lot compared to other essential nutrients. Sulfur is almost a 10:1 ratio and is carried in the tissues of the plant. Much of this is brought up from natural soil decay and previous plant matter. Some minerals found in soil contain sulfur, which is released as the organic matter breaks down.
Signs of Sulfur Deficiency
Sulfur is an essential mineral in plants. Plants that are not able to intake enough sulfur will exhibit yellowing of leaves that seems remarkably similar to nitrogen deficiency.
When there is a lack of sulfur in the soil, problems tend to show up on the younger leaves first. Then the older leaves will show problems next. In plants depleted of nitrogen, the older leaves at the bottom are first affected, moving upwards.
Sulfur in High pH Soils
Gardeners in areas with limited rainfall and little limestone will have high pH levels. Most plants enjoy moderate pH, so it’s important to lower that level. Sulfur is useful for this but its application depends upon your pH level.
