Agriculture

Gypsum is a natural additive used as a raw material in fertiliser, horticultural dressings, pesticides and mushroom compost. It is also a proven solution in soil conditioning and helps to improve the crop yield.

It is a source of calcium and sulphur for plant nutrition. It enhances soil aggregation and porosity to improve water infiltration (ability of the soil to drain), which promotes deeper rooting with benefits to the crops. It is also used to reduce the amount of erosion and of nutrients leaving farm fields after crops.

Usages

LAND RECLAMATION

Land that has been flooded by sea water or tidal rivers can be improved by treatment with gypsum, making it workable and fertile again.

 

Soil treatment/Conditioning

The direct application of gypsum improves the structure of clay soils and is often used in gardens and sports fields

Fertiliser

Used as a fertiliser for over 250 years providing crops with the required levels of essential nutrients, calcium and sulphur, improving overall plant growth

Composting

In general composting, gypsum provides a source of sulphur that can easily be assimilated by growing plants.
