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.
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.
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.
