Product Description

Product Description: Gypsum is the common name of hydrated calcium sulphate. Gypsum can be used as a Sulphur or calcium fertiliser, or more commonly as a soil amendment breaking down the clay barriers and minimising surface crusting. It improves the soil structure, reduces surface crusting, aids water absorption and encourages deep root growth promoting plant vigor. Gypsum can be used as a calcium fertiliser, however it has no effect on pH. If the pH does not need amending an application of gypsum can be effective for several years. Gypsum improves soil structure by displacing sodium, with calcium ions. High rates of sodium cause soil particles to disperse, making the soil lose its structure resulting in reduced water infiltration and impacting on plant growth.

Application Rate: Gypsum is best used at renovation stages on turf due to a less dispersible granule and insolubility. Calcium fertiliser: a typical rate to apply gypsum when using it as a calcium fertiliser is around 500kg per ha. However, this should always be based on the results of a soil and leaf tissue analysis. Gypsum can be applied at higher rates of around 1 - 5 tonne per ha to improve soil structure and disperse sodium.

Best used for: Gypsum can be used as a Sulphur or calcium fertiliser, or more commonly as a soil amendment breaking down the clay barriers and minimising surface crusting.
