What is Gypsoil Gypsum?

GYPSOIL brand gypsum has the exact same chemical composition as mined gypsum but it is typically more pure than mined gypsum. GYPSOIL is a co-product of the process that cleans the air from coal-fired plants and is sometimes called FGD gypsum. GYPSOIL is also made as a co-product of certain processing plants for food-grade products.

Fertility Tool-

GYPSOIL brand gypsum is an important source of two vital nutrients needed in crop production, calcium and sulfur. It supplies 17-20% calcium and 13-16% sulfur, depending on the exact production source.

Soil Amendment-

Soil amendments, sometimes called soil conditioners, are materials added to the soil to enhance structure and other soil properties that contribute to plant growth and health. GYPSOIL amends soils because it flocculates (attaches) soil clays leading to improved soil particle aggregation. Aggregates are the "clumps" of soil particles that are held together with moisture and organic compounds.  Certain soils - especially tight clay soils found in the Midwest - tend to be poorly flocculated and comprised of weak aggregates that are unstable and easily dispersed. These soils are easily eroded and highly compactible.  Following heavy rains, they may seal or crust at the surface. GYPSOIL helps form strong aggregates that resist compaction and surface crusting.

How it works-

GYPSOIL alters soil chemistry. Soil particles and organic matter have negative charges on their surfaces. Mineral cations (with positively charged surfaces) are attracted to these negative charges on the soil particles. The number of exchangeable cations that a soil is capable of holding and available for exchange with the soil water solution is called the CEC. This is an indication of the level of nutrients the soil can hold. Clay soils tend to have a high CEC.
GYPSOIL is calcium sulfate dihydrate (CaSO4 • 2H2O). It dissolves (dissociates) with moisture into free calcium and sulfate. The sulfate (SO4) attaches primarily to excess magnesium (Mg), aluminum (Al) and sodium (Na) in the soil complex, making soluble compounds that move down and out of the crop rooting environment. The remaining Ca from the gypsum then attaches to the exchange sites, replacing the excess Mg, Al, Na, etc. in the soil complex. This is what sets the stage for improved soil structure.

Gypsoil Gypsum gets barged into Winona, MN and MSP/ST Paul, MN area then its trucked to your farm for application.  
We have a New Leader spreader to get the job done for this product.
