Salt Remediation Using Solu-cal S and XSODIS

Fairway Applications:

XSODIS Only Application

Apply 5 gallons/acre for soils with > 80 ppm of Sodium. After the initial 5 gallon application maintenance rates below can be used. Applications should be made every 4-6 weeks. For turf with low K levels, an application of Kcal Plus 0-0-24 is recommended at 200lbs/acre.

Maintenance Rates-Use 2.5 gallons/acre for soils 50-90ppm of Sodium. For soils 90-180ppm use 5 gallons/acre. For soils >180ppm 10 gallons/acre maybe used every 6 weeks. Water in for 3 minutes immediately after application. Water in that evening with 15 minute cycle.

Solu-cal S plus XSODIS Application

Apply 2.5 gallons/acre of XSODIS, water in for 3 minutes immediately after application. Water in that evening with 15 minute cycle. Two days later apply 250lbs of Solu-cal S /acre and water in as you would with any fertility application. The Solu-cal S application can be repeated every 6 weeks or as needed. For turf with low K levels, an application of Kcal Plus 0-0-24 is recommended at 200lbs/acre.

Greens and Tees:

Solu-cal S plus XSODIS Application

Apply 5 gallons/acre as initial application, water in for 3 minutes immediately after application. Water in that evening with 15 minute cycle. Two days later apply 250lbs/acre or 6lbs/1,000sq.ft. of Solu-cal S and water in as you would with any fertility application. This can be repeated every 4 weeks or as needed for maintenance as described above. For turf with low K levels, an application of Kcal Plus 0-0-24 is recommended at 150 lbs/acre.

XSODIS spray applications should be applied in 1.5 to 2.5 gallons of water per 1,000sq.ft. For fertigation systems XSODIS should be applied at 5 gallons/acre over a 3 day watering cycle. Apply after core aeration or verticutting for best results. Apply before fertility application. Can be applied with soil penetrants and wetting agents.

Did You Know

Solu-Cal, a calcitic lime, is four times more effective than regular lime. If a superintendent is told to use a ton of lime per acre, he can do the same thing with 500 pounds of Solu-Cal. There are labor savings, storage savings, fewer empty bags to fool with, fewer refills.

Why Calcium?

The Forgotten Nutrient

Calcium in the Soil:

  • Primary nutrient in maintaining proper soil pH
  • Improves soil texture
  • Reduces soil compaction
  • Creates better environment for the proliferation of beneficial bacteria
  • Possible links to weed suppression

Calcium in the Plant:

  • Vital constituent of cell walls within the plant
  • Strong cell walls significantly reduce disease and insect pressures and outbreaks
  • Enhances cell tissue strength for greater resistance to heat and traffic stress
  • Increases the availability of N-P-K and other vital micro nutrients
  • Used more by weight and volume than any other nutrient

Why Sulfur?

  • Sulfur is needed by plants in relatively large amounts
  • Aids in the formulation of chlorophyll
  • Aids in the fixation of nitrogen by micro organisms
  • Sulfur is vital in plant metabolism
