Sodium accumulations in soil replace calcium, destroying soil structure by dispersing soil colloids. As a result, water infiltration, percolation and soil aeration are reduced. Seed germination is inhibited by high sodium levels and root growth is generally reduced. Salt Remedy provides high levels of exchangeable calcium ions which displace sodium ions that are absorbed on cation exchange sites of soil colloids. The outcome is the restoration of soil structure and the prevention of sodium build up resulting in vigorous plant growth.
