Soil moisture is a key factor in determining whether a crop will establish well. With very dry soil conditions in autumn and spring becoming more frequent it is essential to retain as much as possible for plant establishment and continued development. Similarly, for vegetable planting modules, soil moisture retention will ensure healthy, uniform plants and reduced need for water application.
Wetter by Agro-Vital is a blend of natural polymers, wetting agents and surfactants that will allow water to penetrate soil, disperse evenly throughout it and be retained for longer. It can be added to irrigation and sprinkler systems and is compatible with fertiliser solutions.
These properties of Wetter mean that seeds have steady access to moisture for uniform germination, capping will be prevented and Nitrogen leaching will be reduced. Wetter is a useful tool to keep crops healthy during times of drought stress.
