Sam Green, President of AQUA-AID Solutions provides insight into the enhanced calcium market, specifically our Verde-Cal Products and the technology behind it, thCa™
Polyacrylamide Soil Conditioner
Remediator is a liquid formulation of calcium chloride, surfactants, penetrants, and a water soluble polyacrylamide, also known as PAM, that work together in a synergistic manner to create a unique soil conditioner. This solution remedies sodium and/or salt problems, clay and compact soil, soggy soil, and water drainage problems. It also addresses soil erosion and problems associated with poor or reclaimed irrigation water.
Remediator contains a water soluble polymer which is very different from the super absorbent polymer gels that swell when in the presence of water. The water soluble polymer in Remediator does not swell in the presence of water but is dissolved in the water and is left behind, attached to soil particles, when the water evaporates.
• Releases salts, lowering soil electrical conductivity (EC)
• Improves clay soils by displacing sodium, immediately decreasing exchangeable sodium percentage
• Improves soil drainage
• Reduces crusting and improves infiltration of water and nutrients
• Helps overcome problems associated with reclaimed water usage
• Easier seedling emergence
• Less soil erosion
• Helps maintain healthy balance of nutrients
• Eliminates standing water
• Money back guarantee
Golf, Lawns, and Sports Turf
Maintenance Rate: Apply 8 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (25 L/ha in 800 L) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Curative Rate: Apply 16 to 32 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 3 gallons of water (50 to 100 L/ha in 1,200 L) at 30 day intervals. Once turf conditions improve begin applying maintenance rate.
Irrigate with sufficient water to deliver Remediator to the soil profile – 1/8 inch (3 mm) or more recommended.
Shrub and Tree Plantings
Mix 2 ounces in 1 gallon of water (16 ml in 1 L). Pour 16 ounces of mixture in the planting hole for each gallon size of container (125 ml of mixture per liter size of container).
After broadcasting seed, apply 32 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 3 gallons of water (100 L/ha in 1,200 L) to hold seed in place and help prevent erosion.
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.
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.
