Some Days Are Less Than Perfect

Yesterday morning I was awakened at 3:30 am to the sound of rain and I knew it was going to be a great day for work, but not necessarily for playing golf. It is days like this where we can take advantage of limited play on the course and get a lot accomplished with little interference.

We were able to spray some fairways in the rain with a product that helps us deal with the high levels of sodium, chlorides and bicarbonates in the soil. The timing of this application was perfect due to the fact that the product needed to be watered in.
Spraying in The Rain

This soil treatment is a revolutionary sprayable soil amendment that helps
reclaim damaged soils by aggressively lowering bicarbonate levels and solubilizing hardened deposits in soil. Bicarbonate in the soil interacts with calcium and as it dries forms calcium carbonate. This cementing action minimizes flocculation, water penetration, fertilizer efficiency and access to nutrients in the soil.

This new soil treatment reacts instantly with the deposits, freeing bound-up nutrients previously unavailable to the plant. The newly solubilized calcium also helps flush unwanted salts. The result is an improved soil profile and a plant renewed with increased calcium, phosphorous, nitrogen, zinc and other key nutrients.
