Aquatrols Releases Comprehensive Guide to Managing Turfgrass Salinity Issues

PAULSBORO, N.J. – Aquatrols Corporation of America, the world leader in soil surfactant technology, is pleased to announce the release of a new, comprehensive guide to managing turfgrass salinity issues in soils and irrigation water. The manual supplements a line of innovative soil and water quality management products released by the company earlier this year.

The purpose of this educational guide is to simplify the often confusing and sometimes contradictory information available today regarding water quality guidelines for turfgrass irrigation and salinity levels in turfgrass soils.

It is essential for turf managers to know the composition of their soils and water sources as slight variations in either can have profound effects on the appearance and health of turfgrass. “There are a number of different soil and water issues within the broad context of salinity. It is imperative that soil and water tests be conducted so that the specific issue you are facing can be identified,” stated Tom Boerth, Director of Research and Development at Aquatrols.

In addition to offering tips on how to properly interpret soil and water quality test results, the full-color guide also suggests remedies to problems with salinity, sodicity, and ion toxicity.
