Soil moisture optimising surfactants for turf are products that are designed to improve water infiltration, distribution and water retention within soils and rootzones, thereby helping turf to maintain optimal moisture levels for growth and performance. These products typically contain a combination of surfactants and humectants that work together to improve the water management capabilities of a soil.
Soil acting surfactants also help reduce the development of localised dry spot. Localised dry spot occurs when localised areas of a soil become water-repellent as a result of being dried out. can This can result in turf stress, turf dieback and result in inconsistent playing surfaces. High quality surfactants help to reduce or prevent the development of localised dry patch.
Soil moisture optimisers can be especially useful in arid or semi-arid regions where water is scarce and/or irrigation systems are limited. By improving the soil’s ability to retain water, turf can better withstand drought and other environmental stresses, while also requiring less frequent watering.
In addition to their water-saving benefits, soil moisture optimisers can also help improve nutrient uptake.

H2Pro AquaSmart is an outfield wetting agent for a low rate application to provide a cost-effective programme. The agent for low rate application provides a greater water-use efficiency by slowing drying and then allowing quick rewetting of the soil, so maintaining a healthy plant and a quality surface.
H2Pro TriSmart is formulated with three water management surfactant technologies to provide great water penetration, even water spread through the rootzone and to improve the water holding capacity of sandy rootzones. Researched, formulated and produced in-house by ICL.
Qualibra is a premier wetting agent and water conservation agent that combines a unique and dynamic penetrant with a powerful polymer to optimise water penetration and conservation within the rootzone.
