Abstract/Contents:Compares the solubility rates of gypsum and calcium sulfate anhydrite, hypothesizing that with more time to penetrate soil, the anhydrite products may "gradually catch up" to applied gypsum. Outlines a laboratory test in which the solubility rates of the two products were measured, and concludes that "the bottom line still continues to be that the rate at which anhydrite products solubilize is very slow, so that even more than two weeks after putting the anhydrite products in water, there was still much less soluble calcium available for use in sodium management, as compared to the gypsum products."
