A liquid fertiliser high in Calcium and Sulphur for improving soil structure by reducing sodium build up and increasing calcium levels.
WHY IS InBio GYPSUM USEFUL TO FARMERS?
Due to the very small particle size InBio GYPSUM has a fast reactivity rate and works as a fast acting soil amendment, conditioner, and fertilizer.
InBio GYPSUM can help create favorable soil by lowering EC, as a high EC value of soil is undesired for the crop growth. High EC of soil can be due to fertilizer application as well as weathering of soil minerals. Gypsum, being readily soluble, results in proper buffered solute concentration (EC) in soil to maintain soil in a flocculated state.
Calcium is essential to the biochemical mechanisms by which most plants nutrients are absorbed by roots. Without adequate Calcium, uptake mechanisms would fail. In soils with unfavourable Calcium Magnesium ratios, such as serpentine soils, Gypsum can create a more favourable ratio.
Improves Texture and Drainage
Gypsum is very useful for improving the textural and drainage properties of heavy (clay) soils. Gypsum is also an excellent calcium and sulphur fertiliser. Its special benefits are that horticultural Gypsum is fast acting and pH neutral (contrasting with other Calcium fertilisers that are slower and either raise or lower soil pH).
Improves Structure for Deeper Root Penetration
Gypsum provides Calcium, which flocculate clays in acid and alkaline soil. A flocculated clay forms friable soil with improved soil structure and tilth. It also allows for deeper, healthier root development and water penetration.
Improves Water Retention in Sodic Soils
Gypsum when applied to sodic soil reduces the levels of exchangeable sodium resulting in increased water retention. Gypsum is another source of Calcium responsible for the binding of soil organic matter to clay and gives stability to soil aggregates. Gypsum can help keep clay particles from adhering to roots, bulbs and tubers of crops like potato, carrots, garlic and beets.
