Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) has signed an agreement with the Gypsoil Division of Beneficial Reuse Management LLC (BRM) to market gypsum (calcium sulfate) produced at ADM's Southport, N.C., citric acid plant. The product is marketed as Gypsoil brand gypsum.

Agricultural producers use Gypsoil to improve soil fertility and structure."Gypsoil is an excellent option for supplying calcium, a nutrient that is important to a wide variety of crops, but particularly essential for peanut growers," said Ron Chamberlain, director of gypsum programs for Gypsoil/BRM. In addition to calcium, gypsum is an excellent source of soluble sulfur, a nutrient that is often lacking in soils today.
