Sam Green, President of AQUA-AID Solutions sits down to share a Fall 2020 message. How has Covid19 effected the golf industry, the challenges and solutions the industry has found to combat the boost in rounds many are seeing.
Irrigation Water Acidifier
AcidipHy Liquid is a unique blend of acidifying agents combined with a surfactant and manganese sulfate designed to be applied either through the irrigation system or in a tank spray. AcidipHy Liquid lowers the soil and soil solution’s pH while utilizing and/or releasing soil nutrients that are present but previously not available to the soil or plants. AcidipHy Liquid enhances stress resistance by allowing the plant/soil to regain balance and release nutrients.
AcidipHy Liquid provides varying rates to allow for optimum effect based on soil/paste/water test data. Water and soil samples should be taken and analyzed on a routine basis by a reputable lab. Apply and immediately irrigate to field capacity to flush salts. AcidipHy Liquid may be applied monthly or as necessary to maintain desired salt and bicarbonate levels. Apply at a minimum dilution rate of 50 parts water to 1 part AcidipHy Liquid.
• Lowers pH of irrigation water and soil profile water
• Neutralizes the negative effects of high bicarbonate and carbonate levels in irrigation water and the soil solution
• Maintains the solubility of calcium and magnesium in irrigation and soil water
• Improves the ability of soil-applied calcium based amendments to produce soluble calcium
• Dissolves calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate salts on the surface (crusting) and in the soil profile
• Money back guarantee
Golf, Lawns and Sports Turf
Sprayable Application: Apply 1 to 3 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 1 to 2 gallons of water (3 to 9 L/ha in a 400 to 800 L) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Irrigate with sufficient water to deliver AcidipHy L to the soil profile – 1/8 inch (3 mm) or more recommended.
Irrigation Injection Application: Based on irrigation water hardness, inject 1 to 9 gallons per acre in 50 to 450 gallons of water (10 to 85 L/ha in 470 to 4,200 L) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
|50 Bicarbonate ppm||1 gallon per acre||(10 L/ha)|
|100 Bicarbonate ppm||2 gallons per acre||(20 L/ha)|
|200 Bicarbonate ppm||4 gallons per acre||(37 L/ha)|
|300 Bicarbonate ppm||6 gallons per acre||(55 L/ha)|
|400 Bicarbonate ppm||8 gallons per acre||(75 L/ha)|
|450 Bicarbonate ppm||9 gallons per acre||(85 L/ha)|
During a few days together, preparing for the virtual education season to come, the AQUA-AID Solutions team sat down for a round table discussion talking 2020.
VERDE-CAL can offer some relief by releasing calcium and thus conditioning the soil and making other nutrients available.
