Gypsum

So What is Gypsum Used For?

  • Lawns: In spring and fall you can take advantage of seasonal moisture which will help push an application of gypsum into the soil for conditioning it. Use 10 lbs per 150 square feet.
  • Gardens: Mix well into soil before planting for increased production.
  • For Roses and Flowers: Spade 1/2 lb of gypsum around each plant and soak the area with water. Flowering plants and bushes prefer a more acid soil and by adding gypsum you are lowering the pH of the soil.
  • Trees & Shrubs: In the fall, apply a generous quantity of gypsum to the soil around the base of trees and shrubs to stimulate root growth. This also helps to control insects that hibernate in the soil over the winter.
  • Salt Damage: Winter de-icing salt is toxic to most plants and grasses when it accumulates to certain levels. Use 1/2 lb of gypsum per square foot to restore soil that has absorbed salt.
  • Agricultural use: Farm fields high in clay or sodium will benefit by applying gypsum. Make sure to get a soil test done to find out what your application rates need to be. We have tests and studies to give a better idea of what results can be achieved by spreading gypsum.

Your Soil Will Be Responsive to Gypsum if:

  • Water puddles in your yard, garden or fields
  • There is excessive cracking of the soil after rain or irrigation
  • The soil contains large amounts of clay and is compacted
  • Sodium levels are high
  • You pH from a soil test needs neutralizing. Gypsum can bring both acidic and alkaline soils back to neutral. Can be blended with lime for acidic soils.

What Does Gypsum Do For Soils?

  • Improves soil structure
  • Helps reclaim soils with high salt content
  • Aids in seed emergence
  • Increases the stability of organic matter in soil
  • Improves water use efficiency
  • Helps plants absorb more nutrients
