Pelleted Gypsum

Online Quote Request Form for Pelleted Pelletized GypsumPelleted Gypsum is a very remarkable product. It's calcium sulfate and is used in a number of different applications. It has sulfur in the sulfate form, so it's all ready to be used by plants. The analysis shows it has 17% sulfur and 22% calcium.

It is a little bit slower reacting for a sulfate than say ammonium sulfate or potassium sulfate, but the gypsum works to take out excessive sodium. It will work to put the right ratio into place between the calcium, the magnesium, the potassium and the sodium. So it just kind of helps to put all of those cations in proper ratio with each other.

We use it to leach excessive sodium. It provides sulfates in organic production for something like soybeans where we need to get some sulfates out there. We use it when the soil is going anaerobic and this will help pull it back up to a more oxygenated environment in the soil.

Pelleted Gypsum works very well in combination with limestone and soft rock phosphate and together they have some kind of a strong synergistic effect between the three of them. And really gypsum is kind of an unsung hero in modern production. It is critically important and we use it in a lot of applications. Most of the soil programs we make use gypsum. It's also very useful to supply calcium to something like blueberries where you want to keep the pH a little bit lower, so it's helpful there.

So those are some the benefits of pelleted gypsum. We frequently will use from 300 to 500 lbs. per acre. And for the most part, 500 lbs. is a maximum application rate. The only time we go against that rule is out in western soils where we have really extremely saline soil or sodic soil that has got some problems that need to be leached. And so then we might go up to a ton per acre rate.

Pelleted Gypsum is available in bulk hopper bottom, ton tote bags and it's also available packaged up in small bags that are put on 2,000 lbs. per pallet, but in small bags that can be broken down. It's a very clean pellet, not a dusty or broken pellet. It's a very nice product and it would mix very well in a fertilizer spreader and spread out. It doesn't react very much with other fertilizers. Overall Pelleted Gypsum is a very important part of growing quality crops.

OMRI Listed Allganic Nitrogen Plus 15-0-2

For those of you who might have missed it, we have a new Chilean nitrate to offer you.

In the words of our Chilean Nitrate supplier:

"... our new OMRI Listed Allganic Nitrogen Plus 15-0-2...is a homogenous blend of 95% sodium nitrate and 5% potassium sulfate. image

The great part about this product is that it is NOT classified as oxidizer, so it does not ship/store as Hazmat, which should save you on freight and handling costs.

The physical characteristics, such as solubility, are the same as the 16-0-0 product, and it is still 100% nitrate-nitrogen from Chile, so you can expect the same high quality prills you’re accustomed to.

We have this 15-0-2 product available now...and will phase out the 16-0-0 product and are moving completely towards this new and improved 15-0-2 going forward."

Send us your quote request along with your zip code & the amount of product you need. Thanks!
