Topdressing
Often applied on the heels of aeration, topdressing serves to amend the soil profile or simply fill in low spots that develop on fields during normal use. Straight sand is the most common topdressing material, though sand can be blended with organic peat (for added nutrients) or calcined clay (for improved drainage). Because aeration, and particularly core aeration, enhances topdressing's effectiveness, the entire two-pronged process should be scheduled to coincide with a field's substantial down time - perhaps in April or, more likely, November.

In English we will often add the word "straight" to something to mean that it is only that item and nothing else.
For example, if I said I like my drinks "straight" it would mean that if I like whiskey, I would not want it mixed with something else such as water or soda.
If I were to say I like my chocolate bar "straight", that would mean I don't want a chocolate bar that had something else in it such as fruit or nuts.
The word "straight" can be taken to mean "pure", but if one meant "pure", we would probably not say the word "straight".
If I were to give a definition for this type of usage, I would say "straight" means "unmixed with another item or items".
So in this case, "straight sand" has no other material mixed in with it, such as gravel, moss, compost, fertilizer, etc.
Perhaps there is an equivalent word in Chinese that has this meaning usage.

Very good and clear explanation.  净 may be a close Chinese equivalent.
