Absolute Acid 1-0-0 Poor Water and Salty Soil Conditioner | RMBA
Absolute Acid 1-0-0 is a complex of weak acids from the hydroxycarboxylic family. To enhance water penetration, these weak acids are complex. Unlike most other 'strong' acids on the market, Absolute Acid is not designed to treat every drop of water. Instead, Absolute Acid is used to prepare our soils to accept the marginal quality of the water that we experience today. Absolute Acid will react with soil calcium and convert it into a form that is five times more "available nutrient" than gypsum and also supports an "exchange reaction." When incorporated with Absolute Acid, salt management can be integrated with successful calcium programs and will provide bio-rational results (safe to living soil). By using low-frequency rates of Absolute Acid, salt management can be achieved. Chloride, sodium, carbonates, bicarbonates, and sulfates are the critical salts that are often found at near toxic or toxic levels. Many other nutrients are found to be imbalanced, such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, and other micro-nutrients. Absolute Acid helps to solubilize and remove excessive negative salts and promotes other ions' displacement and balance. As our soils dry, excess bicarbonates precipitate out as calcium, forming a white crusty layer at the soil interface. Absolute Acid prevents the loss of calcium from the soil and prevents excess salts, especially sodium, from accumulating. Absolute Acid can be combined with Ferticell Calcium 880 Plus or Perfect Blend 2-2-1 Plus 15% Ca applications to continuously improve solubility and convert to crop-accessible forms.
- Used to prevent mineral scaling and corrosion in irrigation systems
- Ideal for continuous injection at low economic rates
- Converts calcium to plant-available forms
- Solubilize risk salts for successful salt management programs
- Aid in water penetration with complexed weak acids
- Supports chelating activity
- Converts other nutrients to plant-available forms
- Safely degrades to minerals, CO2, and water
- Residual activity in soils will prevent salts from re-forming compounds such as calcium phosphate in western soils
Absolute Acid 1-0-0 is an extremely safe material for employees, irrigation systems, and components. It is a non-corrosive material derived from carbon-based acids and contains an amine. Great for converting calcium and other locked up nutrients in the soil to plant-available forms.
Absolute Acid can be applied in a myriad of application methods. It may be used indoors/outdoor with all hydroponic, NFT, drip, aeroponic, irrigation, and continuous liquid feeding systems.
Absolute Acid may be used with all soil and soilless media, including Coco Coir, and is compatible with all nutrient programs. Always check for pH and CF levels.
Shake well before using. Store in a cool, dry place. Do not store in direct sunlight.
