Application of the wetting agent ensures even distribution of moisture through the soil and maintains reserves of water for plants from irrigation or rainfall.

HydroPro-2 also improves the wetting consistency between treatments, resulting in firm, dry playing surfaces while also controlling and preventing Dry Patch, the company said.

Research and user experience have demonstrated that a programmed approach to the application of wetting agents is the the best method for keeping soil hydrated, and reduces the wet/dry cycle that promotes the build-up of hydrophobic soils.

HydroPro-2 – which contains block polymers based on ethylene oxide and propylene oxide - is supplied in 10-litre packs which will treat 5,000-7,500 m2.
