VERDE-CAL can offer some relief by releasing calcium and thus conditioning the soil and making other nutrients available.
Alkalinity and pH Treatment
By pre-treating irrigation waters with Aqua-Carbon, carbonates and bicarbonates are converted to highly-soluble and organically-rich lignosulfonate salts, which stabilize soil pH and serve as a source of nutrition for soil microbes. Using Aqua-Carbon can increase readily available calcium and organic sulfur to soils.
• Lowering the pH of irrigation water
• Increasing infiltration of applied water
• Increasing soil moisture
• Softening seed coat for germination
• Minimizing scale formation in drip irrigation lines
• Maximizing nutrient availability
• Optimizing soil pH
Golf, Lawns, and Sports Turf
Apply 3 to 5 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (10 to 16 L/ha in 800 L) at 15 day intervals or as needed.
Irrigate with sufficient water to deliver Aqua-Carbon to the soil profile – 1/8 inch (3 mm) or more recommended.
Inject 1 to 1.5 gallons per acre (10 to 16 L/ha) at 15 day intervals or as needed.
