This particular nut producer farms 20,000 acres and had a field where irrigation infiltration was poor and water runoff was high. High sodium levels have a negative effect on water infiltration. After a soil test, we determined the sodium base saturation levels were high at 4.5%. We recommended the grower inject one quart of IgniteS2® through his drip irrigation due to IgniteS2® sodium reducing capabilities. Within 24 hours of application water runoff had decreased substantially. Thirty days after application the grower said:
“The field is draining very well. Doesn’t look like the same field during irrigation.”
Two months from the original soil test, and after applying one quart of IgniteS2®through irrigation, another soil test was taken. IgniteS2® reduced sodium levels by 44% in two months.
