soaking and sulfur??

I've always cut my seed taters in eye filled chunks and let dry before planting.. But i've just read on burpee's facebook about some who soaks them before planting???  And I'm conidering dusting my taters with sulfur before planting.     Should I dust the cuts before drying OR does it matter?? Or forget it and use my sul-po-mag ??

Personally I don't do the sulfur thing but the idea is to stop fungus or infection forming on the raw edge. If you rinse the potatoes, let them dry then dust with powdered sulfur. Then let them chit/spout for a few days before planting.
