New Economic Impact study reveals 23 benefits associated with using gypsum in agricultural operations. Long term users report 5:1 or higher returns for gypsum on alfalfa acres. For corn: 2:1 or higher.
The impact of gypsum on water quality and news of an approaching NRCS national conservation standard were part of a cover story in October's Ohio Farmer.
Research and practical insights on using gypsum were the focus of our annual Symposium in Manhattan, KS.
GYPSOIL brand gypsum is a soil amendment used by corn, soybean, alfalfa, cotton and other crop growers to increase crop productivity through improved soil structure and valuable added nutrients. GYPSOIL brand gypsum (calcium sulfate dihydrate [CaSO4 - 2H2O]) is an excellent source of sulfur and calcium.
GYPSOIL is the leader in agricultural gypsum. By spreading gypsum, crop growers can effectively improve soil physical properties to soften tight clay soils, increase rainwater infiltration and retention, combat soil crusting, improve seedling emergence and root growth, remove aluminum barriers and reduce nutrient runoff and soil loss. Recent research shows promising results in using field-applied gypsum to reduce nutrient runoff from farm fields to ultimately protect water quality.
