Wetting Agents (Water Management Products)
In Ireland water is abundant. The problem is however, that it doesn’t fall in predictable uniform amounts. Regularly watering the turf ourselves should alleviate the problem, but it isn’t that simple. Due to the nature of both soil and water, water does not uniformly wet the soil.
Water penetrates the soil unevenly, runs off or lies on the surface due to the soil being water repellent. It behaves in an erratic manner causing defects in the grass growth resulting in poor grass coverage. (See fingered flow diagram below).
In order to get the best from turf playing surfaces we need to offer nature a little help by using the range of Aquatrols water management products: These products have differing specifications and varying degrees of sophistication, but all work to make Water Wetter!
This encourages the water to work its way to where it is needed – into the root zone of the grass. (See matrix flow diagram below).
For Consistent Firm, Fast Greens
Ensures consistent moisture and air levels throughout the rootzone. Reduces surface wetness, which results in firmer playing surfaces and increased turf quality.
This unique chemistry has been tested and proven by leading turf and soil scientists world-wide.
