THE ROLE OF CALCIUM IN THE SOIL

We all know to apply calcium products, but why is Calcium so important for a healthy soil and strong plants?

In our latest article, we explain in depth why Calcium is vital for both soil and the plants that it grows. Calcium has two major effects in the soil.

Firstly, Calcium works as a bonding agent in the aggregation of soil particles, in which it helps to bind organic and inorganic substances. This is important for the development of a good soil structure. Secondly, it acts as a nutrient filler, to maintain balance amongst nutrients and occupy space which otherwise would be taken up by acidic elements. The high molecular weight and two electrons are the main reasons for these effects. For the entire article, please read The Role of Calcium in the Soil

WETTING AGENT RESEARCH

How does OARS HS compare to other wetting agents in the field?

In order to answer this question, Vos Capelle and Aqua Aid Europe conducted a comparative wetting agent research last year. On Golf Park De Haenen in Teteringen (The Netherlands), a practical test was set up on the Par3 course, to investigate the functioning of different surfactants. The most commonly used wetting agents in The Netherlands were included in this test set-up. During the entire growing season, the performance (effectiveness), duration of action and uniformity of all products were examined and compared. Please continue here to see our wetting agent research.
