CROSSOVER Gypsum for Ag

Silicon Based Soil Amendment with Gypsum

On our CrossOver for Ag page, we describe the product as a beneficial soil amendment designed to help with plant health and vigor.  It does this by improving the plant’s defense systems against environmental as well as biological stress.  But what about soil types or regions that present additional challenges such as fine-textured soils containing high levels of clay?

Such soils are ideal for CrossOver application, but additional help may be required.  CrossOver G for Ag may be the best choice.  It improves water filtration rates in soils by preventing swelling clays and crusting.

What is CrossOver G?  It is a highly refined, gypsum enhanced, calcium and magnesium silicate product in pelletized form. Its benefits include correcting chemical imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, structural instability and toxic conditions associated with salt-affected soils.

Sodic soils can be a problem in many regions, often due to the use of reclaimed and effluent water heavy in sodium, chloride and bicarbonates.  The gypsum facilitates the leaching of sodium from the soil profile.   That can be especially beneficial in many western regions where sodic soils are common and are becoming a greater problem each year.  

CrossOver G for Ag represents a perfect blend of gypsum with calcium and magnesium silicate providing numerous benefits for crops grown on clay or sodic soils.  Its leading attribute is that it participates in biological processes that boost the plant’s ability to withstand many challenges from disease, insects and environmental stresses.

We encourage you to refer to our CrossOver Ag Technical Bulletin which can be referenced or downloaded on our web site.  The tech bulletin describes in much greater detail the make-up and benefits of CrossOver as well as its counterpart, CrossOver G.
