Gypsum

GYPSUM (Calcium Sulfate)

Gypsum is an amazing natural mineral because of its extraordinary ability to absorb, hold, release, and exchange different chemicals, nutrients, toxins and ions according to need. Gypsum was formed from the glass component of volcanic ash millions of years ago, similar to Bentonite.

Gypsum, also known as calcium sulfate hydrate, is a naturally occurring mineral used in the production of wall board, cement, and sidewalk chalk. It is also a well known organic soil conditioner, source of Calcium and Sulphur, root growth stimulator, as well as helps retain phosphorus run-off.

Soil Tilth

Higher yields through soil conditioning, improvement of the flocculation, through increased soil tilth, the air to soil ratio that allows oxygen and nitrogen laden air down to the roots.

Phosphorus Retention

Retains nutrients longer such as essential phosphorus, reducing leeching and run-off, allowing for greater soil diversity and increased production.

Reduces Toxicity

Diminishes aluminum toxicity in soil which can be a result of increased acidity for root growth.

Source of Calcium

Produces significant turf root improvement resulting in dense and deeper feeder root system from the presence of calcium.

Sulphur

Most crops have greater yield when the soil is neutral to slightly acidic. Sulphur is a natural, and organic way to reduce pH to the desired and necessary levels for optimum growth.

Reduces Runoff

Gypsum aids in reducing water runoff by increasing the conductivity of the soil thus keeping the soil structure more stabilized and intact.
