Wetting Agents

Aquazone™

Uniquely Advanced Wetting Agent – Residual & Penetrant

Aquazone™ is a 100% active (no diluents as supplied) non-ionic wetting agent developed for use on sports turf to prevent localised dry patch (LDP) and give additional benefits in relation to the use and action of water.

Aquazone is a high quality product giving reliable performance at an exceptional price.

LDP can arise from hydrophobic soil conditions which may in turn arise from plant breakdown material, animal sources, fungi and critically low soil moisture content. Hydrophobic soils can inhibit even distribution of water in the soil profile, denying grass roots an adequate supply of water, water soluble nutrients and applied treatments.

Aquazone works by lowering the interfacial tension between water and other substrates (specifically soil constituents and grass roots) – this enables contact angles to be reduced and water to spread out laterally through the soil profile and flow into areas that were previously water repellent.

  • Treatment and preventative for localise dry patch
  • Non-phytotoxic at use concentrations
  • Non-scorch formula
  • Excellent tank mix compatibility
  • Potential to reduce water consumption where no turf wetter is currently used
  • Assists in maximising the effectiveness of a range of soil chemicals and fertilisers

Biodegradability (OECD 90 1 B test) Readily

Aquazone must be diluted in water prior to spray application. Aquazone should be added to water rather than water added to Aquazone – this avoids potential for gel phases to form.

Aquazone has widespread tank mix compatibility, however a jar test should be conducted first.

Monthly application – March/April until September/October:
