Wetting Agents

Aqua-Aid - Liquid Wetter and Spreader
back  Back

Aqua-Aid liquid is a non-toxic, non-ionic biodegradable water based formulation of wetting agents and surfactants.  Aqua-Aid reduces water surface tension, provides a uniform moisture profile, reduces water usage, increases nutrient uptake, increases water penetration and helps leach harmful salts.  Its water based formulation allows application at any time of the year and it is used both as a wetting agent for soils and composts and also as a spreader when, say, foliar feeds are used.  Many growers use domestic washing-up liquids as spreaders but this is not advisable as some of these materials can damage the natural waxy surface layers of leaves. Aqua–Aid has no detrimental effect on plant life.

Aqua-Root
back  Back

Wetting Agent Plus Humate Aqua-Root is a mixture of Aqua-Aid wetter and Humate,both at double strength. When combined with Aqua-Aid, Humate and water become more available to the root zone, improving the benefits of Humate and the effectiveness of water. Aqua-Root increases the cation exchange capacity in the soil and saves water by modifying its surface tension and releasing trapped micronutrients.It improves germination of seed and stimulates root length and density at reduced levels of fertiliser use. It also improves soil structure and moisture retention.

Aqua-Root plus Iron is effective both in rootzone uptake and as a foliar spray. The benefits of Humate, the effectiveness of water and the take-up of iron are improved. Aqua-Root plus Iron increases the cation exchange capacity (CEC) in the soil and saves water by modifying water surface tension and releasing trapped micro-nutrients. It increases root length and density at lower levels of fertiliser use as well as improving soil structure and moisture retention.

Aquifer - Liquid Wetter
back  Back

This product is widely used, both in the UK and in the USA, as a wetting agent on golf greens.  It is designed for turf and should be used by the amateur gardener on lawns.  It is described as an omni-directional soil surfactant which means it produces both a downward and a lateral movement of applied irrigation and rain water in soils.  This provides a uniform moisture profile throughout the soil for up to 45 days.  This allows not only water but also chemicals and nutrients to be distributed throughout the root zone resulting in less summer stress, reduced wilt, fewer localised dry spots and improved wetting capability.  It is ideal for use on domestic lawns which suffer from thatch and dry areas as well as on flower borders and vegetable plots where it will "even out" the water that is contained in the soil.  The 500ml bottle will treat 400 square metres of turf.
