Having had to drop Chemistry 101 in college due to lack of 
comprehension, this thread is very instructive.

I remember hearing from organic farmers that sulfur is anathema to 
microbial life (sulfa drugs are antibiotics).  They suggested that to 
have a vital soil, less sulfur (in the form gypsum) should be applied.  
I would like to hear more about this from knowledgeable folks like Jim.

easier to ask...
