Effective moisture management has always been a critical part of any turfgrass maintenance professional’s success. Whether you want to hold water in dry times or need to move it when it’s wet, the desired result is always the same: even distribution of moisture throughout the root zone. Achieving this balanced state is an ongoing challenge, but without the proper tools it is a practical impossibility. Geoponics believes that the price of the surfactants used in this pursuit should not preclude anyone from being able to use them, which is why our cost per acre is so far below the industry average. Our customers’ savings are often used for treating more area than ever before, making our products like Penterra, HydraHawk, Humawet and Profasorb found at SoilSurfactant.com value-adding tools no chemical room should be without.

MOVE WATER THROUGH A PROFILE

Penterra (Penterra.net)

Penterra is a high grade soil penetrant designed to move irrigation and rain water off the surface and deep into the ground. As with any wetting agent, Penterra decreases the surface tension between water, soil and plant to overcome hydrophobic soil conditions. Where this proprietary formula sets itself apart from the other surfactants on the market today is in its extraordinarily high activity (Anionic vs. Non-Ionic). By surrounding soil particles with a strong negative charge, Penterra literally pulls water down and through the profile with unrivaled speed and effectiveness. This allows the turfgrass manager to prevent an excess of accumulation from heavy or long lasting rain events, as well as to quickly and easily wet areas like slopes and mounds which often develop LDS and require a disproportionately large amount of water.

Penterra’s beneficial effects are noticed rapidly, in many cases after a single application. It helps reduce crusting, loosens up hard clay soils, aggregates sandy soil, and allows water and oxygen to better reach plant roots. Regular treatments improve the activity of microbes necessary for a healthy soil environment for the improvement of the turf, making it healthier and increasing its disease and insect tolerance.

Reported Uses of Penterra

• Affordably treat entire course
• Dew reduction for earlier starts
• Treat slow draining bunkers
• Enhances speed of glyphosate
• Protect against frost damage
• Prepare greens for heavy rain
• Dry out problem wet areas
• Open sealed-off soils

 

All Natural Moisture Management

HydraHawk

 

HydraHawk (HydraHawk.com)

All Natural is key when one considers how products influence the environment and using HydraHawk as a tool for moisture management in soils is taking the industry by storm. HydraHawk is made from all natural materials being derived from fruits, vegetables and essential oils. Secondary to its formulation, HydraHawk is mositly used for penetration into areas are challenged by hydrophobic variables, yet subtle enough to add some holding capacity with the root zone. It is widely considered “nature’s powerhouse moisture management product” amongst the Geoponics surfactant line being that it keeps water penetrating into the soil while holding viable water in the root zone for sustainability. When challenged with moisture issues and the environment is top of your priority list of things to consider and moisture management performance is key, HydraHawk is the product for the job.

Reported Uses HydraHawk

• Economical for use in Tees, Greens, Fairways and Roughs
• All Natural
• Treat slow draining bunkers
• Enhances speed of glyphosate and foliar fertilizer applications
• Prepare greens for heavy rain
• Dry out problem wet areas
• Open sealed-off soils

• Provides a natural food source for soil microorganisms

 

 

Humawet (Humawet.com)
Humawet is a unique soil surfactant with incorporated high-grade humates designed to enhance water holding capacity. By prolonging the retention of moisture within the root zone, this formulation allows turfgrass managers to reduce irrigation volume and hand watering when faced with hot, dry or excessively windy situations. Its beneficial effects when used to combat LDS are noticed rapidly, and when used as a preventative measure it can keep such unsightly issues from developing in the first place. Especially helpful when used on sandy soils or those low in organic content, Humawet is both easy to use and economical.

Reported Uses of Humawet

• Affordably treat entire course
• Holds moisture in the root zone
• Assist with drought conditions
• Will not burn
• Contains high grade humate
• Open sealed-off soils

ProfaSorb (Profasorb.com)

Profasorb is a unique soil surfactant designed specifically to enhance water holding capacity when used through irrigation systems. By prolonging the retention of moisture within the root zone, this formulation allows turfgrass managers to reduce irrigation volume and hand watering when faced with hot, dry or excessively windy situations. Its beneficial effects when used to combat LDS are noticed rapidly, and when used as a preventative measure it can keep such unsightly issues from developing in the first place. Especially helpful when used on sandy soils or those low in organic content, Profasorb is both easy to use and economical.

Reported Uses of ProfaSorb

• Affordably treat entire course
• Holds moisture in the root zone
• Assist with drought conditions
