SuperCal SO4 on Golf Courses

On Thursday I spent the day with one of our turf distributors. Scott Goes, owner of Nebraska Landscape Solutions, in Lincoln Nebraska. Scott services golf courses, sports turf fields, and lawn care professionals in southeastern Nebraska. Scott took me to see a couple of golf courses. The first was Beatrice Country Club. We meet with the golf course superintendent Andy Hamilton. Andy has many challenges to deal with, watering with effluent water, low lying greens that don’t dry properly, and recent new hole construction. BCC has utilized SuperCal SO4 for a number of years to fix the problems of watering with effluent water. I had not been to this course but Andy is doing a great job.

Treating pet burns with SuperCal SO4

In a past blog on burn problems on turf I told you how SuperCal SO4 can help eliminate pet burn spots. I wanted to show you how well it works. I have a 2 year old Great Dane. Since our road is very busy, we let him out on a lead to do his business. I thought I had him trained to go around to the side yard near the field. I guess with the cold windy winter he wanted to do it out of the wind, right in front of the house. Since I do not farm, my yard is my crop and I take pride in making it look nice. A spotted dog is fine but a spotted lawn is not. To take care of the spots, I spread SuperCal SO4 at 40#/1000 sq ft on April 1st. There has been significant improvement.    SuperCal SO4 applied April 1    Yard…

Solve common lawn problems with SuperCal SO4

For much of the Midwest the winter was very long with lots of snow and ice. To keep sidewalks clear lots of salt was used. Excess salt creates growth problems along the edges of sidewalks and streets. SuperCal SO4 is the best product to reduce the harmful effects of salt.    Severe de-icer burn, image credit: www.ag.utah.gov Have pets?

Fall Update

It's been a busy summer for us at Calcium Products. The website got a face lift, the SO4 plant has been expanded, and new products have been developed and tested. The building for the expansion has been completed. We are now waiting for the last of the production line equipment. We are hoping for the installation of the equipment to be finished before the end of the year. There has been incredible demand for SuperCal SO4 this past year and we are currently sold out for the rest of the year. The plant expansion will allow us to increase production of SuperCal SO4 by 50%. We have been testing a number of new products over the summer. While most are still in the development stage, and I cannot talk much about them, I can talk about HydraSave. HydraSave is our Ultra Premium Greens Grade Gypsum. HydraSave is an ultra small…
