Midwest growers often experience a host of problems that make it more difficult to farm potentially high-performance acres. Problems such as slow water infiltration, runoff, ponding, crusting, compaction, erosion and other field problems can delay fieldwork and suppress crop performance. Poor soil structure also contributes to potential environmental problems such as nutrient and sediment escapes into the surrounding watersheds. Less-than-ideal soil structure also suppresses biological activity and makes crops more vulnerable to growing season stressors.
GYPSOIL helps growers combat these problems by altering soil chemistry to improve soil structure. This improves water infiltration rate and depth during heavy rainfall which decreases soil and nutrient losses. Over time, gypsum applications also loosen tight soils so growers can operate equipment more efficiently. In addition, GYPSOIL is the answer to the growing problem of sulfur depletion for Midwestern soils. It is an excellent source of sulfur as well as calcium.
