What Are The Best Wetting Agents For Broad Acre Turf Situations? | Tips For Maintaining Lawns And Gardens

Broad-acre surfactant use is easy and effective through an injection unit, which injects Wetting Agent into the irrigation system, distributing it over the irrigated area. By placing a foot on the sprinkler head, it will foam up, giving final evidence that the Wetting Agent has injected into the irrigation system.

At a reasonable cost to the turf manager, Nuturf Pty Ltd sells a suitable multifertic unit co-jointly with Dispatch, a surfactant which has been specifically formulated for this purpose.

Dispatch is a cost effective penetrant used at the low rates of 2-4 L/Ha. Its primary function is to penetrate water quickly through the thatch layer and down to the root zone, limiting the amount of water loss through evaporation or run-off. This efficient use of water can save up to 50% in water and energy costs, and is backed by Aquatrols money back performance guarantee.

Studies undertaken in the United States show that Dispatch keeps water in the soil where it is needed, resulting in better turf quality and uniformity. Increased Nitrogen retention is a side benefit of its use. As Dispatch has widespread tank mix flexibility, soil applied fertilisers and chemicals will also be more uniformly distributed through the root zone, giving a more uniform response to fertilisers and other applied chemicals.

I would like to thank Alexandra McCorquodale (Nuturf Pty Ltd – National Business Manager Wetting Agents) for this information and you can contact Nuturf on 1800 631 008 for more information.
