New Soil Improvement Service Available From GYPSOIL

Crop growers tired of dealing with the negative effects of tight clay soils and poor soil structure, as well nutrient deficiencies, are encouraged to sign up for a free, on-farm GYPSOIL Soil Improvement Analysis (GSIA). The GSIA assists crop growers in evaluating how gypsum can impact soil quality in their operation.

“GYPSOIL is a foundational tool that changes soil structure and improves water infiltration and holding capacity,” says Ron Chamberlain, GYPSOIL’s founder and lead agronomist.  “It also has the power to decrease erosion and reduce nutrient loading in our watersheds. In addition, GYPSOIL supplies calcium and sulfate sulfur, which are essential in plant nutrition.”

GSIA Helps Answer Questions About Gypsum Use

Many crop growers are unfamiliar with using gypsum because it hasn’t been widely available until recently through the availability of synthetic gypsum, Chamberlain says.  “They have questions about where and how to use it,” he notes.

The new GSIA service – which will be piloted at the Farm Science Review in Ohio – is designed to help answer those questions. A GSIA involves reviewing soil test results, cropping histories and plans, and overall conditions of specific fields, explains Chamberlain.

Farmers will be able to identify where GYPSOIL will make the biggest impact and also recommended rates to help improve the soil physical properties and supply valuable nutrients such as calcium and sulfur.

Discount For Signing Up At Ohio FSR

Growers who sign up at the Ohio Farm Science Review for a GSIA on their farm for this fall will be eligible to receive $1/ton off on GYPSOIL purchased before December 31, 2013. The first 100 to sign up for a GSIA at the show will receive a free commemorative t-shirt.

“Growers that have used GYPSOIL on their farms report outstanding results,” Chamberlain says.  “The first thing they see is how much better soils sponge up moisture due to increased soil particle aggregation and better porosity.  The improvements in soil physical structure also enhance soil biology, and as a result, production efficiency improves.”

For more information about the new GYPSOIL Soil Improvement Analysis, write GSIA@gypsoil.com or call 1-866-GYPSOIL (497-7645).
