Product Description

MoisturAid is a granular wetting agent for turf, nurseries, potting mix, landscaping, forestry, councils, estate gardens, flowers and any situation where water repellent soils are not allowing water and nutrient to get into the root zone. This slow release granular formulation dramatically improves the wettability & water holding capacity of soils and potting mixes.

Features

  • MoisturAid is a granular wetting agent suitable for a broad range of horticultural applications
  • MoisturAid dramatically improves the wettability & water holding capacity of soils and potting mixes
  • MoisturAid overcomes hydrophobic (water repellent) and water logging problems, eliminates dry spots, improves drainage, optimises water and fertiliser availability, reduces stress and increases plant survival rates
  • MoisturAid is a slow release granular formulation with the active ingredient made available over an extended period of time, usually up to six months. This is not the case with liquid wetting agents which require frequent repeat application
  • Also unlike liquid wetting agents, there is no need for irrigation immediately after an application
  • MoisturAid is easily spread over the surface or incorporated into the soil or potting mix
  • MoisturAid saves time, water and plants

How It Works

MoisturAid undergoes a unique manufacturing process which impregnates a liquid wetting agent into the chosen carrier material (a fossilised sponge). This process makes the active ingredient available over a much longer period of time, usually up to six months. The wetting agent is released in the presence of irrigation or rainfall. MoisturAid works by decreasing the natural surface tension of applied water to ensure irrigation water or rainfall filters through to the root zone.
