Gypsum is a mineral that can be found in various items we use today. It is used to produce drywall and Portland cement, agriculture and other applications.

Gypsum Uses

Gypsum and gypsum products are mainly used for construction purposes. However, this is not the only use of this amazing mineral. Gypsum can also be used in Agriculture. Gypsum plays an important role in various sectors. It acts as a soil additive and fertilizer. The mineral consists of two main ingredients necessary for healthy plant growth - calcium and Sulfur. While calcium helps to absorb nutrients via the roots, Sulfur improves the overall production of crops. Gypsum as a soil quality booster also controls excess salinity of the soil by removing sodium from it.

Gypsum facilitates the proper growth of the roots by helping in the easy movement of air and water through it that is absorbed from the soil. By doing so, gypsum strengthens the roots and prevents soil erosion. The mineral also balances soil micronutrients such as iron and zinc.
