- At the one-day symposium, university and USDA researchers, industry experts, crop consultants and experienced growers presented sessions on the impact of using gypsum on crop production, soil and water quality, water infiltration, erosion, runoff and nutrient loss. Field demonstrations of gypsum app
- DTE Energy has entered into an agreement with the GYPSOIL division of Beneficial Reuse Management to market GYPSOIL brand gypsum from the Monroe Power Plant in Monroe, Mich. GYPSOIL is an important soil amendment to help farmers increase soil productivity and protect water quality.
- A growing body of research shows that applying gypsum to agricultural land offers many potential benefits to soil and water quality and crop productivity.
- Gypsum, used as a soil amendment to supply soluble calcium and sulfate sulfur, helps soils absorb more water during rainfall, according to USDA ARS research studies. That means more water goes into the soil reserves to be tapped by crops when rains are scarce later in the season.
- Ohio and Indiana farmers wishing to use gypsum to improve soil quality now have access to technical information and possible financial assistance through their local Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) office.

- Water Infiltration, Tight Clay Soils, Soil Crusting, Nutrient Runoff, Remove Aluminum Barrier - GYPSOIL identified these Common Field Problems
- Experts speaking at the 2014 Midwest Soil Improvement Symposium: Research and Practical Insights into Using Gypsum shared the latest information about how gypsum can improve soil quality, promote healthy root development, maximize nutrient availability, and protect waterways.
It was found that Ca2+ ions were more effective than Mg2+ in aggregating soil clays. These results supported by differences in infiltration and erosion between Ca and Mg treatement for two out of four studied soils. Practically, this research provides further evidence to explain differences in
