Excess sodium can be damaging to soil and plants.
Na-X™ Soil Salt Flush is a solution of calcium and urea nitrogen that is designed to rapidly reduce sodium salt levels and improve soil structure.
What Does Na-X Do?
- Quickly reduces sodium levels
- Improves soil structure and water penetration
- Reduces standing water and runoff
- Provides a source of calcium for turf
How Does Na-X Work?
Na-X contains high levels of calcium ions that quickly displace excess sodium ions in the soil. The calcium in Na-X also brings the soil particles together to form the structure that allows water and air to flow unimpeded through the soil profile. This allows the sodium to be carried away by flush water. Both the calcium and nitrogen contained in Na-X are available for uptake by plant roots, improving stem strength and leaf structures.
Storm surge, ocean spray, coastal flooding, and salt water intrusion can cause sodium salt to build up in the soil. In addition to being toxic to plants in high quantities, sodium breaks down soil structure, limiting root growth and causing a decline in turf and plant health. Use Na-X once the storm has passed to quickly flush salts out of the root zone. Na-X will not prevent surface salt from burning foliage; however, flushing soil salt will reduce long term damage and prepare the site for better recovery, seed germination, and establishment of new plantings.
