Default gypsum for fertilizer

I have access to gypsum from a coal fired power plant. It is supposed to be high in sulpher and calcium without messing with the ph. Wondering if anyone has used it on bananas.

Default Re: gypsum for fertilizer

Gypsum is often used as a soil conditioner, it is not a fertilizer. Also, I believe your local soil is high in Calcium so it is probably a poor idea to add more.
