Hi-Grade Gypsum located in the Mallee and ready for you to pick up or delivered by arrangement!
Usage and Details Agricultural gypsum is used for soils containing dispersal clay. Symptoms of which are water logging, increased run off, poor water storage, surface crusting, and problems with cultivation and erosion.
Sodium causes swelling and dispersion of clay, particles of which may then move through the soil, clogging pores and reducing infiltration and drainage.
The calcium from gypsum displaces the sodium which can then be leached deeper into the soil. By reducing the dispersion of the clay, it allows more of the rainfall to enter the soil, reducing run-off and erosion risks and improving drainage after rains.
The lower soil strength allows for more timely cultivation and seeding, and also allows improved crop performance from rapid emergence, improves root structures, improved aeration and efficient water use.
