FoliMAX Bi-Pass counteracts excess bicarbonate and carbonate in recycled/ effluent irrigation water. The organic compounds in Bi-Pass which include polyphenolic compounds and lignosulphonic acid to offset the antagonistic effect of soil and water based bicarbonate.
Many recycled irrigation water sources and calcareous (limestone) soils contain high levels of bicarbonate and carbonate, both of which can adversely impact plant growth by raising soil and water pH, increasing soil salinity, and affecting the availability and uptake of nutrients and many critical micro-nutrients from the soil.
Bi-Pass can be used as a descaling agent to reduce Calcium scale deposits from irrigation lines. Normal use rates and intervals can prevent deposition and accumulation of lime scale. Higher rates may be required to clean out previously blocked lines.
