Bicarbonate and Sodium Accumulation (Planting Bed)
Nutralyz (12-0-0) is a premium grade, clear liquid ammonium thiosulfate, which provides an excellent source of both nitrogen and sulfur. As soil microorganisms break down Nutralyz to release the nitrogen, the sulfur is converted into sulfuric acid. This release of sulfuric acid reacts with accumulated biocarbonates, breaking them down into CO2 and water. The sulfuric acid can release calcium ions into the soil solution to displace sodium ions that have accumulated on the soil colloid. As pH in the rhizosphere is reduced, micronutrients become more available for plant uptake.
Sulfur is widely recognized as an essential element for plant growth. It is a critical nutrient for the development of chlorophyll, helps nitrogen to be used more efficiently, and is required by the plants to synthesize certain vitamins and amino acids. It has also been documented to help reduce certain diseases in turf. When used with a proper NPK program, sulfur can help progress the decomposition of thatch, stimulate microbial activity, enhance turf color and density, increase drought tolerance and improve winter hardiness.
- Bicarbonate and sodium toxicity
- Isolated dry spots caused by bicarbonate and sodium buildup
- Poor water penetration
- Poor fertilizer, particularly micronutrient performance
Nutralyz (12-0-0) may be applied through fertigation or conventional spray. It may be applied alone or tank mixed with other products✝.
Corrective Application: Apply 13 oz. diluted in 2 gallons of water per 1,000 sq. ft. (4.3 gallons diluted in 80 gallons of water per acre) once per week for 3 consecutive weeks. Promptly water this application into the soil. Repeat every two months as needed.
Preventative Application: Apply 13 oz. per 1,000 sq. ft. diluted in 2 gallons of water (4.3 gallons diluted in 80 gallons of water per acre) every 4 to 6 weeks. Promptly water this application into the soil.
Fertility: Nutralyz may also be used a part of a regular nitrogen fertility program. Refer to the table below to determine the volume of Nutralyz to apply to achieve the desired amount of nitrogen.
