Advantages

Hydraflo L effectively decreases water surface tension. This aids the rewetting of soils in dry summer periods, eliminates localised dry spots and increases the uniformity of wetting throughout the soil profile. 

By allowing better water penetration and absorption, Hydraflo L helps plants to grow deeper, stronger roots. It also encourages free-drainage from waterlogged soils in winter and during heavy rainfall. This inhibits surface moss, algae growth and soil borne pathogens. When waterlogged soils drain, air is allowed into the root zone which enables the turf to take-up valuable nutrients.

Product Advantages

  • Long term performance enables rewetting of dry soils
  • Better drainage promotes deeper, stronger roots
  • Safe to use on any turf and ornamentals
  • Uniform wetting to avoid summer dry patch
  • Readily available in 5L, 20L and 200L containers
Direction for use

Prepare sufficient solution of Hydraflo L with water (at the specified dilution rate) to treat the intended volume of growing media. Use this solution to thoroughly soak the soil media. 

No extra irrigation is required beyond initial drenching, other than normal irrigation practices. For more details, please see a full description in the pdf or contact your local ICL advisor.
