English term or phrase: Landplaster
Bom dia a todos!

Aqui estou eu com mais uma patente para ser revisada e deparei-me com um termo que não conheço e não consegui localizá-lo em meus dicionários e pesquisas pela internet.

O titulo da patente é: Modified Landplaster as a wallboard filler.

De acordo com o site ANSWER.COM, land plaster (grafia separada) é:
"Finely ground gypsum, used as a fertilizer and as a corrective for soil with excess sodium and potassium carbonates."

O contexto dessa patente refere-se a gesso e métodos para misturá-lo com outras substancias para torná-lo menos aquoso.

Gostaria de saber qual o termo exsitente na Língua Portuguesa mais apropriado para esse material.

Obrigada
Juliana

Explanation:
What is landplaster?
The same thing as gypsum.

Why is landplaster used on peanuts?
To provide calcium without changing the pH. Peanuts don't have the ability to translocate adequate calcium to the fruit so the pegs must touch calcium to form properly. Sandy soils don't hold calcium so land plaster (gypsum) puts the calcium there when it is needed. Clay soils have the ability to hold calcium so landplaster isn't needed on peanuts grown in clay soils
