Managing Salts in Soil & Irrigation Water

On a recent trip to Arizona, I had an opportunity to meet with multiple superintendents that are currently using the SuperCal brands to manage high salts in the soil. Golf courses, particularly in the Southwest have started to use reclaimed water out of necessity to irrigate the turf. The global demand for fresh potable water is doubling every 20 years and due to this demand golf course superintendents must take an integrated approach to growing healthy turf.

One of the recurring issues we kept hearing about in Arizona was dealing with bicarbonates in the irrigation water. I have linked an excellent article regarding the management of salts in the soil and irrigation water. This article was written by Sowmya (Shoumo) Mitra, PhD. from the Golf Course Management magazine in January of 2001.
