Introducing New Hydro-Pak Wetting Agents
We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with Precision Laboratories to produce five co-branded wetting agents under the Hydro-Pak brand. The five products contain technology powered by Precision Laboratories.
Hydro-Pak Percolate is a combination surfactant with multiple ingredients that provides hydration and infiltration across a wide range of soil types. It prevents runoff and wasted water by reducing tension. Percolate helps prevent localized dry spot, while providing uniform soil moisture and a firm playing surface.
Hydro-Pak Kastella is a flexible rate product that can be applied at various rates for longer residual. Kastella is a blend of surfactants that provides hydration and infiltration, improving volumetric water content across all soil types. It also aids in the prevention of localized dry spot consistently over long periods of time.
Hydro-Pak Infiltrip is a combination of surfactants designed to increase the movement of irrigation and rainwater into and throughout the rootzone of natural playing surfaces. It increases available water in the root zone for three to four weeks depending on rate. Infiltrip moves more water and holds less, which can be a good in tight native soils.
Hydro-Pak Aqueous is an infiltration surfactant and water conditioner that reduces the surface tension of water to increase penetration and water quality. It may be used in conjunction with other soil surfactants, plant protectants, or plant nutrients. The newer penetration technology is stronger than older chemistries.
Hydro-Pak Diversion is an infiltration surfactant that moves water, plant protectants, and nutrients into the soil solution. It may also be used to move soil-active fungicides, insecticides, herbicides, and plant growth regulators into the soil. Diversion is a good choice when spraying or injecting and more penetration is desired.
These five products are all available now. The new line of wetting agents will help turf professionals make more efficient use of rainfall and irrigation on golf courses, athletic fields, and even commercial and residential lawns.
