the best way to think about it is like lime. It's not a fertilizer in it self, but by adjusting the soil chemistry it alows the turf to use the minerals more efficiently. I use it annually during my fall aerations

What I know about calcium is that it is an essential nutrient that also happens to have an effect on soil structure and pH. Lime and gypsum are not the only sources of calcium. There is also calcium nitrate and calcium chloride. Either of those have specific circumstances where they are appropriate.

Gypsum can also be used to help loosen hard clay soils.
