Gypsum is used in many parts of the world as a soil dressing for the reclamation of "salty" country. Farmers have asked whether such applications would improve salt-affected soils in Western Australia. The answer to such questions is that tests made over a period of 20 years, using gypsum on salt-affected soils in various parts of the wheatbelt, have failed to reveal any benefits accruing from even very heavy applications.
