Soil surfactants: How to move water or retain water
Soil moisture management is key to healthy turf and plants. Soil surfactants provide the answer. Whether you need to hold water in dry times or need to move water when it’s too wet, the desired outcome is the same: even distribution of moisture throughout the root zone. Turfgrass maintenance professionals have the Geoponics line of soil surfactants available for any condition to best manage soil moisture.
