Spring Flushing

On this beautiful spring morning we woke up to quite a surprise it looked more like winter than anything else.  The timing of the snowfall is not great but the moisture that comes along with it is hard to beat.  From an agronomic standpoint the moisture will put to work the soil amending products that were applied durring aerification last week.

Applications of Gypsum were made to the main play areas to help offset the high levels of Sodium found in our soils. The natural precipitation from the snow will further help putting the Gypsum to work by saturating the soils and moving the Sodium down and out of the soil profile. This process is made more effective with the use of natural precipitation versus effluent water which contains the elements we are trying to remove.
