Soil amendments and wetting agents improve soil moisture management by helping water penetrate the surface and promoting uniform moisture distribution. Moisture management systems can optimize water use. Hydrophobic soil (soil that repels water) significantly impacts plant growth and can negatively influence overall production. Treating hydrophobic soil with wetting agents and soil amendments can reverse the water repellency and promotes water absorption and uniform moisture distribution throughout the soil profiles.
Soil amendments increase the stability of water-soluable seed mats used to retain moisture and protect seeds from temperature extremes and wind or erosion.
Soil wetting agents, also known as soil surfactants, reduce the surface tension of water, allowing it to spread more evenly through the soil profile. Exacto offers both liquid and granular wetting agents.
