Suppressing earthworms in the desert

Grass Clippings - Rail City Garden Centre NevadaCastClear is an unique non-pesticidal nutrient that increases turf health and deters lawn soil casts.  It suppresses and deters earthworms from being in the upper reaches of the soil where their casts cause so many problems on the lawns surface.  CastClear contains more than 5% amino nitrogen with more than 15% bio-organic sulphur.

A supply of CastClear was recently sent to a new garden retail stockist in Nevada, USA to assist local lawn owners with their worm cast problems. Locally owned and operated since 1996, Rail City Garden Center has the most unique nursery experience in Northern Nevada.

Their experience serves a wide variety of residential clients, many of the leading commercial and property management companies, real estate developers, contractors, and golf courses, serving over 40 locations in the Reno/Sparks/Carson City area.

CastClear is a unique combination of nutrient materials that have been clearly shown to reduce worm-cast levels on sports Close scientific evaluation has shown that this new product does not kill worms or reduce populations, but does deter worms from travelling through treated soils.

It is unique in using an environmentally friendly surfactant system that moves the nutrient into the upper soil structure and fixes it there; providing good persistence of deterrent effect until breaking down to natural nutrients absorbed by plant roots.

It can be used with absolute safety from first tiller formed on new seeds at low rates of application, and year round on established swards.

So long as correctly applied, you will notice a reduction of casting in about 7 days.  The casts that are present on the lawn at the time of application will not disappear but new ones will be deterred from appearing. 

Repeat application at 10 to 20 day intervals or sooner if lawn worm population is high, soil texture heavy or we have had lots of rain over the autumn/winter months.
