New Everiss product claims to prevent dew formation

Everris has announced an addition to its H2Pro range with the launch of a new product called DewSmart, designed to prevent or reduce the formation of dew on grass.

Dew on grass blades can be problematic for turf managers because it can create ideal conditions for fungal diseases to thrive in. The moisture coating the leaf allows easy spread of fungal spores and the water droplets then combine with guttation water to provide food for the fungal pathogens.

H2Pro DewSmart is a newly formulated dew dispersant product for turf grass areas. The formulation contains specifically selected sticking and spreading surfactants that bond to the leaf surface and prevent moisture droplets from forming.

A statement from Everiss said the product is ideal for use on fine turf, will not scorch, and will ensure that playing surfaces are dew-free for early morning players. The product can be applied with a standard boom sprayer.

"Just a single application of H2Pro DewSmart will prevent dew forming for an extended time period, which reduces the need to switch or brush the greens on a daily basis - saving staff time. It will also provide protection over the weekend when switching might not take place. Furthermore, a cleaner cut will be possible because the surface will be drier."

The company said under "optimum conditions" dew could be controlled for up to four weeks.
