The water from the river is mixed with sulphur. The water from the sulphur spring flows into the river. What will happen if the crops are watered with this water?

Generally it does no harm; it actually can benefit some crops. Here are some to avoid that may be sensitive: apple, apricot, blueberry, currants, gooseberry, grapes, pear, brambles and vine crops.

Problems can include scorching of leaves, dwarfing, dropping leaves, and less fruit. Do not use sulfur when temperatures are above 80 degrees Fahrenheit (27 C).
