AgPro™ RECLAIM is a soil-conditioning product. It is a proprietary blend of surfactant and organic polymers, fermentation products, and chelated copper.
RECLAIM promotes more uniform distribution of soil moisture due to its polymer content and consequently improves moisture supply in the root zone. Promotion of better drainage in compacted or hydrophobic soils is another effect of RECLAIM application. Improved nutrient absorption and improved plant vigor often result.
The formulation also promotes removal and biodegradation of pesticide residues from clays and organic matter in soils where pesticide residue persistence has been a problem.
Levels of alkaline salts of sodium and magnesium have been shown to decrease with RECLAIM applications, especially when also spreading gypsum or sulfur and when drainage has been facilitated by ditching or drainage tile.
Applications to alkaline sugar beet and potato soils have resulted in sizeable yield increases when applied at 32 oz/A pre-plant, incorporated plus 16-32 oz/A banded, pre-emerge in beets and when applied at 16 oz/A in-furrow plus 32 oz/A banded 21 days later in potatoes.
Options are simply limited when sub-lethal carryover chemical damage appears in a field. RECLAIM can be a very powerful cost effective tool that can be used to deal with this problem. RECLAIM can be applied foliar or through a pivot. Results vary according to the soil nutrient balance, soil function, and chemical strength. We have over 14 years of successful experience fixing this challenging problem, but early timing or preplant prevention spray can be critical.
Sodium Issues: Stimulate beneficial bacteria, fungi and micro organisms which will unlock nutrients that have been tied up in your soil. RECLAIM is a soil detoxifier that will dramatically remediate sodium levels, and make potassium (90%) more available and phosphorus (48%) more available. Increase nitrogen efficiency by up to 1/3. Increase biological activity, help break up compacted layers, increase the development of the plant above and below the surface. Do all this and much more with RECLAIM!
In potato and onion production, RECLAIM aids in the bulking process in two ways.
1. At this late stage in the plant's growth, the root system is starting to diminish. RECLAIM stimulates root growth which is vital for nutrient uptake.
2. RECLAIM stimulates microorganisms that are directly responsible for phosphorus and potassium release in the soil. More available nutrients enter the plant through a better root system.
