Wetting Agents

Ground Force Leisure supply their own competitively priced range of wetting agents for sports turf, golf greens and golf courses..

As all turf managers know, moisture flow through the soil profile is one of the most important characteristics of a soil. Beneath the surface in affected areas the soil is extremely dry and will not easily re-wet. Research in the UK has shown that the build-up of waxes and lipids around the sand/soil particles that cause dry patch are concentrated at the soil thatch interface and this area is referred to as the hydrophobic zone.

Wetting agents act as penetrants, breaking the surface tension and allowing soil moisture to flow through the soil profile or by stripping off the waxy layer created by dry patch and thatch fungus or by retaining soil moisture next to the soil particle.
