We went to a commercial testing lab and had several commonly sold turf fertilizers made with Potassium Chlorite (Muriate of Potash) tested for overall salt index. The result? An average of 99.6! Anything above 69.0 is considered injurious to plants! San Jacinto’s low-salt fertilizers had an average salt index of 14.4.
The use of high salt fertilizers, while cheap to buy initially, end up costing you lots of money, because of the regression of plant and soil health, which leads to poor plant performance, greater use of pesticides and greater use of water.
Only San Jacinto offers golf-course grade fertilizers at contractors prices.
Just as in the human body, your inputs determine your results. You must have healthy soils to have healthy plants.
Most synthetic fertilizers are sold on price only, with little regard to quality. The results are high salt, agronomically incorrect fertilizers that will increase the incidences of disease, insects, weeds, hurt soil health, and require more water.
It’s actually less expensive to use quality fertilizers because of the end results.
With San Jacinto’s Low-Salt, Slow Release Fertilizers you’ll save a ton of money on reduced water use, reduced pesticide applications and client aggravation because of better Fertilizer performance. Plus, you’ll have the prettiest, greenest turf in town.
At San Jacinto our synthetic fertilizers are blended to strict specifications to give you top performing fertilizers that are good for your soils and plants at an affordable price.
|Salt Index Comparison
Look at the different salt levels that different fertilizers have. Most synthetic fertilizers use lots of urea and Potassium Chloride because they are cheap to buy. But fertilizers high in salts kill soil life, burn plants, compact soils, tie up nutrients, negatively change pH, and weaken plants making them more prone to insects, disease, weeds, drought and frost.
