Water is a vital element for the growth and development of all plants, including turfgrass. However, too much or too little water can have negative impacts on turf quality, including disease susceptibility, poor root development, and reduced stress tolerance. Therefore, effective water management is critical to ensure the production of premium quality turf.
At ICL, we understand the importance of water management in turfgrass production. That’s why we have developed a unique and flexible range of wetting agents and dew dispersants designed to optimize water and moisture management.
Our water management products include:
Our wetting agents and dew dispersants are specifically designed to improve soil and turf moisture retention, ensuring that water is distributed evenly throughout the root zone. This helps to reduce water stress and increase turf quality, while also minimising water usage and runoff. Our surfactants also have the ability to reduce surface tension, allowing water to penetrate deeper into the soil profile, promoting deeper and stronger root growth.
Our range of surfactants includes products such as H2Pro DewSmart, which is designed to effectively manage dew formation and reduce the risk of disease development.
By utilizing our range of wetting agents and dew dispersants, turf managers can optimize their water management strategy and ensure the production of premium quality turf. With our versatile and effective surfactant technologies, you can improve soil and turf moisture retention, reduce water stress, and promote deeper root growth, ultimately resulting in healthier and more resilient turfgrass.

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 DewSmart is a dew dispersant for turf grass areas. It’s designed to prevent or reduce dew on the grass leaf. The product is ideal for use as part of an integrated disease management approach to help minimize the risk of disease outbreaks and improve turf health and quality. Our trials have shown that H2Pro DewSmart can significantly contribute to disease suppression as part of autumn integrated disease management programmes.
H2Pro FlowSmart reduces surface tension on all types of turf to provide excellent water infiltration and penetration. Combining new surfactant technology as a carefully blended combination of polymer and penetrants, FlowSmart is retained around the root, ensuring continued re-wetting and effective and efficient water penetration. It also helps water move into and down through the rootzone, flushing carbonates and salts away from rootzones.
H2Pro SaltSmart is a penetrant surfactant plus Calcium macro-polymer. Designed to move water and exchange cations thus reducing impact of salt on turf. Allows water to penetrate, dissolve salts and flush salts below the rooting level or out into the drainage system.
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.
