Stor-it opens passive pores in the soil and actively creates a flow of air in the soil. This way, excess moisture can drain perfectly. Stor-it also increases the buffering capacity of nutrients and provides an extremely strong, stable and porous framework in the soil.
The playability of a sports field or golf course is influenced by water logging of soils. Turf produces organic matter that swells when the moisture content in the soil gets too high. Consequently, the soil is compacted and air cannot circulate freely.
Regulation of moisture and air
The challenge is to drain excessive water while saving the water needed by the plant without compacting the soil or leaching nutrients.
Dry, freely draining soils
The micropores in Stor-it pull moisture from the surrounding macropores for later use. Stor-it, which takes the place of grains of sand, opens passive pores in the soil and actively creates a flow of air in the soil. This way, excess moisture can drain perfectly. Stor-it enhances the cation exchange capacity (CEC) of the soil, increases the buffering capacity of nutrients and thus reduces leaching. Stor-it provides an extremely strong, stable and porous framework in the soil.
Reduces leaching of nutrients
Decreases silvery moss
DOC field trials in 2012 demonstrate that drainage results in more vital and dense turf, supported by more active root mass.
Stor-It granular mineral soil improver is also available in:
25 kg bag on 1,000 kg pallet
