GYPSOIL is the leader in understanding how gypsum is used in agriculture. Company founder Ron Chamberlain has been advising growers on the application of gypsum as a soil amendment since the early 2000s. He is a sought-after speaker for grower meetings and industry events.
In recent years, GYPSOIL has attracted additional top level agronomic talent in our team of Territory Managers, along with a knowledgeable and well-trained dealer network. Soil test results and chemistry balance, field conditions, crop production histories, and other soil quality indicators are considered carefully before recommendations for gypsum as a fertilizer or soil amendment. GYPSOIL Territory Managers and dealers are available to provide advice to growers on rates, application procedures and other practical aspects of using the product.
GYPSOIL participates in numerous farm shows, educational sessions and grower field days in various locations within its distribution system. Visit our Events Calendar for more information about upcoming opportunities to connect with GYPSOIL.
One recent field day event was the Glacierland Resource Conservation and Development Gypsum Field Day on April 13, 2016.
GYPSOIL was a key sponsor at the Nutrient Management and Edge of Field Monitoring, held December 1-3, 2015, in Memphis, TN. Organizers were the Soil and Water Conservation Society (SWCS), in cooperation with the University of Arkansas, The Ohio State University, and Greenleaf Advisors. Approximately 220 participated. The goal of the conference was to provide an opportunity for researchers, conservation professionals, and farmers from across the nation to discuss edge of field monitoring research, nutrient reduction strategies and activities, and conservation programs that have been successful and innovative.
A major educational effort has been the Midwest Soil Improvement Symposium: Research and Practical Insights into Using Gypsum. Symposia have 150-200 soil scientists, crop advisors, company agromists, educators, conservationists, ag retailers, applicators, growers and others to discuss the latest research, technical information and practical aspects of the use of gypsum in agriculture. Videos, slide sets, photos and other information from each symposium are available in the Soil Symposium section of this site.
