Retain Pro Wetter is a proprietary blend of surfactants that are designed for the effective management of soil moisture to maximise retention and infiltration.
Retain Pro is a leading-edge soil-wetting agent designed to break the surface tension of water and evenly distribute water throughout the root zone. Soil-wetting agents attract water to the soil surface and help it soak in. Retain Pro helps you use water more effectively and efficiently, particularly during the hot temperatures of summer.
Retain Pro interacts with soil molecules to reduce leaching and holds water in the root zone.
Retain Pro Wetter effectively manages hydrophobic soil. Hydrophobic soil repels water and causes it to collect on the soil surface rather than infiltrate into the ground. Hydrophobic soils can be created from dryness (drought), plant and other chemicals making them impervious to water. Soil also becomes hydrophobic when organic matter decomposes, leaving a waxy coating on the soil particles. Hydrophobic soils cause water to run off or pool at the surface rather than being absorbed, which can cause serious problems for your lawn. It is a common problem in sandy or older soils, and can also affect soils that haven’t been watered or fertilised regularly.
The soil is likely hydrophobic if water is poured onto the turf and pools or doesn’t soak up quickly. Wetting agents like Retain Pro Wetter can be used regularly on lawns to solve the problem of hydrophobic soil. The use of Retain Pro Wetter is an excellent way to prepare lawn/turf for the hot temperatures of summer, helping ensure that the water applied is used effectively by the soil.
Why choose Retain Pro Wetter:
- Retains moisture for better control and drought prevention.
- Promotes uniform moisture distribution.
- Amends hydrophobic soils.
- Combats wilt symptoms
