Hottest Season on Record: Turf Tips
Water Management Tips for the Heat Wave
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that July 2019 was the hottest month on record with average global temperatures the hottest since records began in 1880.
July is typically the hottest month of the year, but this hottest month keeps getting hotter.
Retain water or move water?
Retain water with ProfaSorb and Humawet.
- Humawet assists with loss of water due to winds, run off and drought. It helps build organic matter in sandy soil and retains water in the plant’s root zone. Humawet is the best of the soil surfactants for soil with low organic matter, including new golf greens. Humawet is designed to decrease the surface tension between water, soil and plant while improving the growth and activity of micro-organisms necessary for a healthy soil environment.
- ProfaSorb is designed for fertigation or drip line irrigation to decrease the tension between water, soil and plant while also improving the growth and activity of micro-organisms necessary for a healthy soil environment. It is easy to use and its beneficial secondary effects of localized dry spots (LDS) are noticed rapidly. Not only are you improving the soil, but you are adding a long term effect to the turf to make it healthier and increase its disease and insect tolerance.
Move water with Penterra and HydraHawk.
- Penterra is the fastest acting of the soil surfactants on the market with long term added benefits. Penterra helps reduce crusting, loosen hard clay soils and aggregate sandy soil. Penterra allows water and oxygen to better reach plant roots by reducing the surface tension between the water and soil.
- HydraHawk helps water penetrate compacted or arid soils and aids plant life in the uptake of water and nutrients. HydraHawk is a natural performance-enhancing wetting and protective agent derived from fruit and vegetable extracts. HydraHawk contains unique natural surfactants that help the plants utilize water and survive in extreme heat, drought and soil salinity even in the severe climate conditions.
