Every year, globally we lose 24,710,000 acres of crop land due to salinization and erosion. Research has shown that a combination of stable humus and gypsum can enhance soil’s aggregate stabilization and salt remediation.
Diamond Grow® - Humi[K] GYP was formulated to provide a perfectly balanced blend of Gypsum and Humic Acid. The combinatorial chemistry of Humic Acid and Gypsum allows for enhanced nutrient availability, translocation and improves overall soil health and sustainability.
At Humic Growth Solutions, we perfected the art and science of functional carbons and their fusion with other vital inputs. Our patented 100 percent soluble Humi[K], fused with gypsum, creates special impact zones for soil heath, fertilizer, and water use efficiencies. It is fundamental for creating stable humus, healthy soil aggregates, and high yield and quality outcomes that result in high return on investments.

Importance of Gypsum
❖ Plays a multitude of pronounced roles in soil and plant health, as well as nutrition.
❖ Root tips, shoot tips, and young leaves demonstrate distorted growth due to lack of Ca translocation and cell wall formation.
❖ Ca possesses different activities, coefficients, ion complexation, and metabolic activities. Humic is even better at enhancing ionic strength.
❖ Mulder’s synergism and antagonism chart attests to the importance of ample Ca.
❖ Fusion of humic with Ca, along with chelating and buffering capacities, enhance the synergism and create more nutrient availability.
❖ Sulfur is a must for nitrogen fixing nodules and vital for formation of chlorophyll.
❖ Sulfur is a natural antifungal element, which allows the plants to resist certain diseases.
❖ Recent studies highlight the key importance of sulfur in microorganisms’ lives, along with human and animals’ overall health and well-being.
❖ The mixture of humic and sulfur enhances the conversion of sulfur to sulfate (from 30 to 70%) contingent upon different dynamics. This supplies consistent sulfate for plant use.
❖ Research has demonstrated that applying organosulfur in high pH soils with excess salts and high Mg in fall (300 to 900 pounds per acre every 4 years) will enhance crop yield and quality.
❖ Humic fusion with gypsum, in conjunction with required N levels, will enhance N:S ratios in crops with high protein requirements. The review of over 30,000 soil analyses reports shows that in most cases the balances for N:S ratios are lacking.
The Many Benefits of Gypsum
Since Humi[K] GYP is soluble, rain and irrigation water will dissolve the calcium sulfate and carry it into the permeability of the soil. The presence of this product in the soil matrix acts to improve the soil’s physical properties by increasing the electrolyte concentration and providing calcium for an ion exchange reaction with sodium. Some of the benefits associated with the use of calcium sulfate are:
✦ Improved Soil Structure - Gypsum provides calcium which can flocculate clay soils and reduce the swelling of smectite and open pore spaces improving the penetration of water, air, and roots into the soil.
✦ Increased Water Infiltration - As the soil structure improves, the water infiltration rate and hydraulic conductivity of the soil increases.
✦ Crust Prevention - Using gypsum to increase the electrolyte concentration of the irrigation water can prevent depositional crusts on soil surfaces which can adversely affect water infiltration rates and seed emergence.
✦ Better Moisture Retention - Gypsum helps the soil take in and retain moisture, improving the soil’s water-use efficiency which is especially critical in times of drought.
✦ Fertilization-Gypsum supplies bio-available calcium and sulfur, elements vital to proper plant growth and development.
✦ Corrects Aluminum Toxicity – Gypsum binds with aluminum to move it deeper in the soil column, it and in turn, temporarily corrects pH levels. Aluminum toxicity can occur in soils that have large amounts of aluminum-containing minerals. Excessive amounts of aluminum can inhibit root development and limit crop growth.
✦ Improved Soil Structure – Gypsum and limestone provide calcium, which can flocculate clay soils and reduce the swelling of smectite and open-pore spaces improving the penetration of water, air, and roots into the soil.
✦ Increased Water Infiltration – As the soil structure improves, the water infiltration rate and hydraulic conductivity of the soil increases.
✦ Soluble Application – Soil performance can be improved by including gypsum and limestone with irrigation water because the calcium found in those minerals compete with other applications for binding sites in the soil.
Enhanced Nutrient Absorption - The calcium supplied in gypsum is essential to the biochemical mechanisms by which most nutrients are absorbed. It regulates the balance of micronutrients in grass plants and optimizes the calcium to magnesium ratio in soils.
✦ Environmentally Safe - Gypsum is an inert and non-toxic mineral.
✦ Irrigation Effect – The success of an agricultural operation and the health of turf grasses are highly dependent on the condition of the soils. Controlling soil salinity with appropriate water management is especially important because soils with high sodium content detrimentally affect the physical and chemical properties of the soil resulting in lower permeability, poor tilth, and less water uptake by the plant. If soils are irrigated with excessive amounts of low quality water, the soil’s sodium concentration will increase. The addition of calcium sulfate reverses these negative effects by reclaiming sodic soil and restoring it to a more productive condition.
✦ Crust Prevention – Using gypsum and limestone to increase the electrolyte concentration of the irrigation water can prevent depositional crusts on soil surfaces, which can adversely affect water infiltration rates and seed emergence.
✦ Better Moisture Retention – Gypsum helps the soil take in and retain moisture, improving the soil’s water-use efficiency, which is especially critical in times of drought.
✦ Fertilization – Gypsum supplies bio-available calcium and sulfur, elements vital to proper plant growth and development.
✦ Enhanced Nutrient Absorption – The calcium supplied in gypsum is essential to the biochemical mechanisms by which most nutrients are absorbed. It regulates the balance of micronutrients in grass plants and optimizes the calcium to magnesium ratio in soils.
✦ Environmentally Safe – gypsum is inert and non-toxic.
✦ Irrigation Effect – Controlling soil salinity with appropriate water management is especially important because soils with high sodium content perform poorly compared to calcium-rich soils. Many irrigation sources contain excess salt, which in turn increase the salinity of soils.
✦ Manure Treatment – Gypsum can be mixed with animal waste to combine with ammonium (NH4) to form ammonium sulfate to prevent loss of nitrogen and thus reduce odors. Ammonium sulfate is odor free.
Directions for Use:
For use with any well balanced soil/plant nutrition application in all agricultural crop field applications.
