Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of gypsum on sports fields. States that gypsum is most effectively used on soils with high sodium levels, as it helps to remove excess sodium and lead to better formation of "soil crumbs." Notes that there is a common misconception that gypsum is a soil softener, which is only true for sodic soils. States that gypsum can also be used in place of lime to increase calcium in soil without raising its acidity, and that gypsum can increase turf intake of calcium in sodic soils, especially soils that have deicing salt applied nearby.
