Aqua-Aid at BTME

Aqua-Aid EU BV at BTME: Aqua-Aid Europe BV will be returning to BTME in Harrogate for the third time in January to demonstrate the power of Verde-Cal G against black layer and the benefits of WormPower Turf.

Common golf course issues such as compaction and thatch are tackled using machinery, but the causes of these problems can be tackled and prevented using Verde-Cal G and WormPower Turf.

Following the REACH pre-registration process after the successful introduction of the AQUA-AID product lines, all individual products have now been full registered with the ECHA to follow the REACH guidelines; this ensures availability of our products after the impending new legislation becomes effective.

Black layer is a common problem that all golf courses can face, and once this layer is established drainage is greatly reduced, with machinery often the go to remedy. Verde-Cal G uses gypsum and thCa™ to remove this layer and provide a healthier root zone with no surface disruption.

The gypsum (calcium sulphate) within Verde-Cal G is combined with the organic complexing agent thCa™. This makes it more readily available for soil or plant use without effecting or raising the pH. In high pH soils this is a great tool to reduce salts and bicarbonates to lower pH levels. Using the product loosens compacted soil, improves aeration and allows water to percolate, which directly combats the causes of black layer within the root zone, and provides more oxygen to the plant roots.

Detailed information on Worm Power Turf will also be available on stand B37. This product increases root mass by enhancing the availability of plant nutrients, and accelerating root initiation, establishment and development. In turn, this increase the water holding capacity of the soil, reducing irrigation frequency and increasing the stress tolerance during harsh conditions.

 All of Aqua-Aid EU’s products are designed to combat and prevent specific root zone and soil issues, from black layer and compaction to hydrating and penetrating the soil using OARS PS (penetrating surfactant) and HS (hydrating surfactant). Ultimately this is done by promoting clean soil profiles, strong roots and healthy plants.
