REGYP is now offering a similar product to its Brisbane Rehab Gypsum from the Kurnell plant in Sydney.
Rehab gypsum is the cheapest gypsum product we sell, which means it is a very low cost source of calcium and sulphur and is perfect for applications where cultivation and/or the addition of topsoil after spreading are used to incorporate the gypsum.
The product contains fine and coarse gypsum particles offering you an immediate release and a continued longer release from the coarser particles. This product also has the added benefit of limited dust generation during spreading and the paper provides some organic content.
REGYP has approval for all of its recycled gypsum products to be applied to land, including Rehab gypsum.
The general Rehab product specs are:
- 75+% gypsum purity;
- Sulphur 15+%
- Calcium 22+%
- Paper/Organics <10% w/w
- Screened Gypsum Size sub 35mm
REGYP supplied Super AG gypsum to Lachlan Valley Produce in Central West NSW for their 2013 corn crop.
The results of the bumper crop using the premium recycled gypsum product can be seen in the photos.
AUSTRALIAN canola production is tipped to drop below three million tonnes next season but recover gradually over the next four years.
ABARES is predicting a steady if unspectacular outlook for growth in Australia’s major oilseed crop with production tipped to climb to 3.3 million tonnes by 2017-18.
The forecast rise would be on the back of an expected two per cent lift in annual plantings to 2.3 million hectares by 2017-18 and would also be boosted by an increased uptake in genetically modified (GM) varieties.
Just as unspectacular was the price outlook for canola with ABARES forecasting a price of $529 a tonne next season (compared with $545 this year) which would decline to $447 (in 2012-13 dollars) by 2017-18.
A new line of baked beans produced in Australia will be released to super markets soon.
Bean Growers Australia recently viewed the new Kingaroy Baked Bean label from SPC.
Australia’s second biggest farming services player, Ruralco, has approached rival Elders about a merger deal to create a $500 million rural services group to rival market leader Landmark. Ruralco chairman Richard England outlined the proposal in a letter to his Elders counterpart, John Ballard, last month.
Ruralco believes there would be significant cost savings in merging Australia’s No. 2 and No. 3 rural services groups and that they could close unprofitable stores to compete better with Landmark.
In two successive field CSIRO trials at Deniliquin, NSW, irrigated grain sorghum was sown at three rates of gypsum (0, 2, and 4.1 tonne per acre), and four rates of phosphorus application (0, 11, 23, and 45 kg per acre) on Billabong clay, a brown clay commonly found on the Riverine Plain of south-eastern Australia. There was a significant response to broadcast gypsum spreading in terms of seedling emergence, tillering, and panicle production. Furthermore, there was a positive interaction between gypsum and phosphorus response which was clearly demonstrated by the yield of total dry matter and grain in the first year. Although there was a response to phosphorus in the absence of gypsum, the more effective use of phosphorus on the gypsum treatments, particularly at the higher rates of fertilizer application, was attributed to improved soil water storage. In the second year, the residual value of applied gypsum was greater following application at 4.1 tonne per acre than at 2 tonne per acre during the previous year. Residual phosphorus had little effect in the year following application.

The Murray-Darling Basin Authority has not changed the recommendation to return 2750 gigalitres of water to the river system, under its revised plan.
The Murray-Darling Basin Authority (MDBA) is standing by a recommendation to return 2750 gigalitres of water a year to the river system, under a revised plan sent to federal and state government ministers.
The MDBA on Monday released proposed changes to its draft plan released in November, after 20 weeks of consulting with communities and stakeholders.
The revised plan includes more than 300 changes to the draft plan, including new provisions.
But it does not propose any change to a planned water recovery target of 2750GL of water per year, saying it’s the right starting point to return the basin to health.
The Victorian government on Monday said the plan was a death warrant for the state’s northern farming communities.
“The target level of 2750 gigalitres has not changed. There is no apportionment of that water between the states, so if all that water was to come out of Victoria, irrigation in northern Victoria would be closed down,” Water Minister Peter Walsh told reporters in Melbourne.
The revised plan also recommends basin states undertake reviews of river operations to see where water can be saved, that local communities be actively involved in water management issues and that governments support communities as they deal with transition issues.
It also proposed the amount of water taken from underground aquifers be cut to a “more conservative” 3184GL per year, from 4340GL.
State water ministers now have six weeks to respond to the revised plan before it is given to the federal government.
