Gypsum and Hi Calcium Lime Application

Side by Side Comparison

This video was taken after 1.2″ of rain on wet soil. The first field has had Gypsum and Hi-Calcium lime applications and cover crops. Prior to these practices it was in worse condition than the others.

Harvesting the Benefits

of Gypsum and Hi Calcium Lime

Better yields

Calicum is a key nutrient for plant health and improves nutrient uptake

Improved aeration

Naturally aerates compacted soils and improves drainage

Gypsum is 200 X more soluble than lime alone

Gypsum provides essential soluble calcium and sulfur to the soil

Improved soil health

Reduced soil erosion and phosphorus runoff

Helps soil achieve the desired 7:1 Ca:Mg balance

Improved soil tilth

Soil balance of aggregated soil particles, moisture content, degree of aeration, rate of water infiltration, and improves drainage

Improved root penetration and water infiltration

Flocuates soil for easier root growth and improved nutrient uptake

More air, more water, and better aggregated soil

Fast

Applies easily and starts working quickly with results seen in first year of application

Compare Us vs Others


We store gypsum inside

  • Gypsum stays dry for best possible spread pattern
  • Moisture content consistent, doesn’t gain weight from rain
  • We have capacity to store 6,000 tons of gypsum inside and out of the rain

They pile in your field

  • Time is wasted
  • Product is lost loading out of and cleaning up piles

We leave a minimal footprint on your soil

  • Gypsum delivered in belt trailers loaded directly to applicator with belt conveyor
  • No pile, no lost product, least possible compaction

They compact your soil

  • Compacted soil in area where loaded trucks dump, turn, and a loader fills applicator
  • Soil is compacted

We don’t leave piles in your field

  • Less waste and clean up
  • More efficient application
  • Double spread for even coverage

They store gypsum outside

  • Exposed to weather rain/freeze that affects how the gypsum spreads
  • Swells as moisture adds weight to pile changing moisture percentage of product

We offer less compaction

  • No heavy loader or semi trailers
  • Lightweight conveyor
  • Floater moves faster across the field

Owners are directly involved

  • Operate the spreader
  • Meet with farmers and land owners
  • Move the conveyer
  • Drive the trucks
