How to increase oxygen in soils?

Agriox is an innovative solution that is designed to improve soil conditions while promoting ecological sustainability. This groundbreaking time-released aerobic aeration conditioning product targets both soil and moisture content, providing essential oxygen to microorganisms residing within the soil. By doing so, Agriox boosts overall soil health and fosters a more sustainable environment for agricultural growth.

Slow-release oxygenation of soil

Unlike conventional aerobic conditioning products that release oxygen rapidly into the soil, Agriox’s SoilOxygen.com time-release process ensures a steady and continuous supply of oxygen over an extended period of time. This is incredibly beneficial for the soil’s resident microorganisms as it allows them to utilize the oxygen more efficiently, thus promoting their overall health and well-being.

The benefits of Agriox’s slow-release oxygen extend far beyond the soil’s microorganisms, as it contributes directly to the overall health of the soil. Healthy, oxygen-rich soil fosters improved root development and nutrient uptake. It is also less prone to compaction and erosion, making it more resilient and able to support a diverse range of plant life. This promotes a healthier and more sustainable agricultural ecosystem, which has numerous advantages for both farmers and the environment alike.

In an era where the use of harmful chemicals in agricultural practices is becoming increasingly concerning, Agriox provides a greener and cost-effective alternative. By improving soil health and promoting a diverse range of microorganisms, Agriox can help reduce the amount of chemical fertilizers, fungicides, and pesticides required in crop cultivation. This not only minimizes the environmental impact of farming but also reduces the financial strain on farmers.

Another crucial aspect of Agriox’s role in an environmentally sustainable future is its ability to remediate soil that has experienced oxygen depletion over time. When soil becomes depleted of oxygen, it is unable to properly support plant life, resulting in lower crop yields and decreased agricultural productivity. Agriox’s introduction of oxygen into the soil helps to reverse this process, reinvigorating and restoring the soil’s ability to sustain life.

In conclusion, Agriox is an environmentally proactive solution that revolutionizes the way we approach soil health and agricultural sustainability. Through its unique time-release delivery of oxygen, it cultivates an ecological balance between plants, microorganisms, and soil to provide an efficient and cost-effective alternative to traditional chemical-based farming methods. By embracing Agriox, we can embark on a brighter and more sustainable future for both agriculture and our environment.

Soil Penetrants: Demystifying How They Work

Have you ever heard of soil penetrants? You may have heard of soil penetrants, but you may not be sure what they do or how they work. In this blog post, we’ll explain why SoilPenetrant.com are important and how they work.

What is a Soil Penetrant?

A soil penetrant is a product used to improve the quality of soil by increasing its ability to absorb water and nutrients from the environment. It works by breaking down the surface tension of the soil and allowing it to more easily absorb water and other essential nutrients. This helps improve drainage, aeration, and nutrient uptake for healthier plants and better yields.

How Does a Soil Penetrant Work?

Soil penetrants like Penterra (SoilPenetrant.com) are usually formulated with surfactants that help break down the surface tension of the soil particles so that water can more easily penetrate into it. The surfactants also increase the number of air pockets in the soil, which helps enhance drainage and aeration for healthier plants. Additionally, certain types of surfactants can help bind together particles in the soil which can create larger air pockets that allow for better oxygenation and water retention. This improved structure helps increase root growth and ultimately leads to healthier plants with higher yields.

The Benefits of Using Soil Penetrants

Using a Penterra will help improve your plants’ health by increasing their access to water, oxygen, and nutrients. Plants need all three elements in order to grow properly; without them, they will be unhealthy or even die off completely! Additionally, using a soil penetrant can save you time and money because it improves drainage which reduces the need for frequent watering or additional fertilizers. Finally, using a soil penetrant can reduce environmental damage as well since it decreases run-off which pollutes nearby waterways with potentially hazardous chemicals from fertilizers.

Soil penetrants are an essential tool for any gardener looking to get the most out of their plants’ growth potential. Not only do they improve drainage and aeration which allows roots to grow deeper into the ground where they can access more resources; they also help bind together particles which creates larger air pockets that allow for better oxygenation as well as increase access to water and nutrients that are key for healthy plants with higher yields! With all these benefits combined, there’s no doubt that using a soil penetrant is an excellent way to ensure your garden is performing at its best!

Superintendent’s Heat Stressed Grass Grows Back with Carbotein for Plant Nutrition

We all know that feeling when our plants, gardens or lawns start looking wilted and stressed. This spring and summer, Matt Lantrip, a golf course superintendent at Montclair Country Club in Montclair, Virginia, had some new greens that were struggling to thrive. The heat stressed grass needed to make a come back. Plant nutrition and soil oxygen became the solutions.

“I started seeing the stress and the wilt. Although I was trying to get the greens to bounce back, it was tough. So, I started using the Carbotein and it worked really well,” says Lantrip.

Watering the lawn. How long, how often and how deep

Lawn Watering Tips

One of the most important aspects of turf maintenance, if not the most important is proper water and/or irrigation techniques. Here we will give you some good ideas for managing soil moisture for your lawn.  

In the golf industry most superintendents will periodically take a soil probe and carefully pull a sample of the soil profile in order to observe different aspects of the soil.  One of those many variables is roots.  

Watering the Lawn for Healthy Roots

Healthy roots are the key to healthy turf.  Grass roots grow in soils that are moist and well aerated or aerobic. This means they have plenty of oxygen.

 For the most part, root growth does not move from dry soil to wet soil looking for water.  If you water your lawn deeply then the roots grow deeper. HydraHawk will help the water penetrate deeper into the soil for deeper root growth.

Keep in mind, most turf grass roots are concentrated in the first 6 to 8 inches of soil. However, some grass species, such as paspalum may grow much deeper.  As these roots grow deeper, the areas by which they can pull water from increase. This is because of the greater surface area to volume of soil reached.  

Water Warning: Too Much Water

However, if you water too much and soil becomes saturated with water and void of oxygen, the roots will not grow deep. Rather, they will stay close to the soil surface.  However, if you irrigate with just enough water to wet the first few inches of soil, then that is where the roots will stay.  Unfortunately, shallow roots usually end up with localized dry spots (LDS) and send turf into stress.

A Little Help From the HydraHawk Wetting Agent for Watering the Lawn

Using a soil wetting agent like HydraHawk can help keep water moving through the soil and allowing for some (but not too much) retention of water.  This combination will assist with keeping the soil and root zone aerobic (with oxygen) and assist with deeper penetrating roots.


 Watering Tips for Your Lawn

  • Water to the right depth.  Water should penetrate to the about 6 to 8 inches in the soil’s profile. Watering to a shallow depth may result a shallow rooted lawn that can dry out quickly, however watering too much is wasteful as the roots will only grow to a certain length in general. You can check the to penetration of the water with a stiff metal rod or something similar to a long screwdriver.  The rod will usually move easily through the moist soil and then it will stop or become difficult as your probe reaches dry soil.  If you so choose, you can buy a professional soil probe.  Soil probes remove small cores of soil so that you can feel and observe how moist they are. They are also beneficial for looking at root color and health among other variables.
  • Let you lawn dry some between irrigations.  Letting your lawn dry out some between irrigations creates a sustainable water-air relationship that is critical for healthy roots. The lawn, like other plants, will let you know when it is thirsty.
  • Avoid water runoff.  Because of various factors in the soil, such as compaction and soil make up, you can water faster than your lawn can absorb it.  Products like HydraHawk can really be a benefit here. On top of using some type of surface active agent, try and water in intervals of about 10 – 15 mins, turn off the water and let it soak into the soil.  Afterward turn on the water again for another 10-15 mins so that you are achieving the goal of getting the water down to about 6 to 8 inches deep.
  • Consider morning irrigation.   The early morning is the ideal time to water your turf because the weather is usually cooler, there is less wind and the humidity is higher hence the water is less likely to evaporate.  However, early morning does not mean midnight.  Wet grass at night can be a recipe for a disease disaster.
  • Monitor irrigation water amounts in summer.   Try to irrigate only one or two inches of water per week during the growing season.  You could irrigate the whole amount of water at one time, however most folks have better results splitting the amount into two separate applications.  Please note however in sandy soils where the water percolates more rapidly it may benefit you to split the applications into three separate irrigation cycles.  You do not want to irrigate more than three times a week because you would be applying so little water the outcome would be shallow roots.
  • Observe your lawn. This is pretty simple really.  Watch your lawn.  It will tell you when it is wanting water.  If the grass does not dry out between watering, stretch the intervals between waterings.  If it seems like the water is not getting deep enough into the soil profile just apply a little more water each watering, but do water less often.  Now if the lawn looks healthy and everything seems fine, try cutting back and conserving water.  You can always make adjustments as you go.
