Re: Gypsum - Soil Conditioner

In regards to gypsum as a soil conditioner.  It is  good for adding calcium
if you need it.  The only way you know if you need it is a soil test.
Gypsum is good for loosening the soil and increasing the infiltration rate
of water on heavier soils.  20 lb/100ft2 is a good place to start but if our
soil is calcareous (high in calcium) it may not be a good idea.
