GYPSUM

Gypsum is the common name of hydrated calcium sulphate. Gypsum can be used as a Sulphur or calcium fertiliser, or more commonly as a soil amendment breaking down the clay barriers and minimising surface crusting. It improves the soil structure, reduces surface crusting, aids water absorption and encourages deep root growth promoting plant vigor.

Gypsum can be used as a calcium fertiliser, however it has no effect on pH. If the pH does not need amending an application of gypsum can be effective for several years.

BENEFITS
Gypsum improves soil aeration and water infiltration. It creates ‘breathable’ soil breaking down the clay barriers and minimising surface crusting.

  • Increase movable calcium and sulphur in soil.
  • Strengthen the nutrient balance between calcium and other micronutrients.
  • Correct soil surface crusting. This will enable good water penetration and improve the water and air movement in the soil.
  • Increase the efficiency of water and nutrient absorption.
  • Reduce water runoff and soil erosion
