On behalf of Mike D:
Hi all, Re gypsum. We own a block of heavy clay soils, sticky, clingy, bottomless mud in winter, concrete in summer. Gypsum @ 2 to 3 kg/square metre worked in, changes the soil to a nice friable, workable not as muddy growing medium.
We missed a corner with the muck spreader spreading recycled gib board, the drill blocked in that corner, the rest of the paddock including the wet area, no blocks, nice friable soil.
If you live as in my case 60 km from a city that has modern rubbish sorting you can get recycled/off cuts of gib board backloaded by the truck and trailer load for free. Disc or rotary hoe it in.
Yes there is some crap in it and some paper to blow around. The other way is to get it put through a lime crusher then put on with a lime sower. Hope this helps.
If anybody wants to talk more give me a ring evenings 033186899
cheers Mike Davies
