Salinity amendmentsSalinity Management

Gypsum (C a SO 4.2H 2 O) is by far the most common Ca-containing amendment. It is low-cost, abundant, and non-toxic, and can be added to either irrigation water or soil. Gypsum added to a sodic soil increases the soil water EC and reduces SAR (or ESP), thus improves soil permeability.

Gypsum can help stabilise aggregate structure in some soils. Use of gypsum in other soils will not improve soil physical or chemical properties, so it is important to understand the processes that occur when gypsum is added to soil. Water, air and roots move between soil particles and aggregates (also called peds). The pores between []

Gypsum Fact SheetBill Cotching

On soils that are both acid and sodic, lime should be used, or a combination of lime and gypsum. The gypsum will work quicker in improving soil structure than lime, but lime is necessary to increase the soil pH. Lime is of no use on alkaline sodic soils. Use of Gypsum to Improve Irrigation

Sodic soil managementdpi.nsw.gov

Lime application to sodic soils Lime (calcium carbonate), like gypsum, is a compound containing calcium. Therefore it can contribute to reducing the effects of sodicity. However, lime is relatively insoluble at a soil pH (CaCl 2) above 5. In most soils of the Murray and Murrumbidgee Valleys the pH (CaCl 2) is above 5, so lime is of little

crops or where cheap gypsum is available from a local source. If gypsum is applied in the irrigation water, a practical rate is 850 kg/ML. At this rate an irrigation of 100 mm of water applies 0.85 t/ha. A gypsum concentration of 850 kg/ML is approximately equivalent to that obtained from broadcasting fine-grade gypsum at

Gypsum Vs. Lime for Soil Site

Mar 12, 2009 · I've applied Gypsum to my own lawn over the years (pellitized with sulfur) because of our heavy soils, also high in pH. Does it REALLY help to loosen up the soil and help water permiate better, or is it more myth than fact? Had a customer (HOA) call today and inquire about Gypsum for their lawns. They have ALL CLAY.
