Poor Water Quality and Soil Testing: President's Message Fall 2021

Posted by AQUA-AID Solutions on Oct 6, 2021 7:09:36 AM

September 15th is a day that is of significant value.  One, it is my birthday, which as the years go by, has more significant value it seems.  The date was of agronomic significance when I was a golf course superintendent growing Bentgrass here in the Southeast.  It was the date that I always circled on my calendar as the day I thought we could see the light at the end of the tunnel after a long season.  We always sat down as a team and discussed what did we need to do to recover and make sure we were setting ourselves up for a successful season next year.

The Perfect Time to Apply Verde-Cal®

Posted by AQUA-AID Solutions on Oct 15, 2018 7:26:08 AM

Late Summer and Early Fall is a great time of year to use VERDE-CAL products. Turf is generally at its highest stress point and September and October can typically be dry months. VERDE-CAL can offer some relief by releasing calcium and thus conditioning the soil and making other nutrients available. These newly available nutrients can offer your turf some of the relief it needs at a time when it may need it most. It is really about the volume of calcium. By releasing “real pounds” of calcium into the soil structure - in various forms, thorough conditioning of the soil can occur. This may be visually seen as green up, growth, rooting, stress reduction, and perhaps even some disease relief. We do not claim VERDE-CAL products will cure disease, but feedback certainly tells us that the benefit of available calcium can make a difference. Remember, better uptake and translocation of nutrients and water will always benefit the turf and allow the turf to withstand stresses better.
