In 2015 we evaluated the efficacy of OARS PS in providing winter hydration to putting greens. Our focus was to provide research based facts that OARS PS could provide the following for turfgrass managers:
Moisture Management Solution
Advanced technology and research in the fields of soil science and agriculture have developed the most cost efficient wetting agent on the market today, Aqua-Aid 15 to 30 day penetrant.
Aqua-Aid is a unique water based formulation of the highest quality surfactants and wetting agents allowing applications any time of the year with no phytotoxicity.
Aqua-Aid provides superior infiltration of water into the soil profile by modifying the water surface tension. This can reduce the required amount of irrigation and rain water by as much as 30%. The end result is less hand watering, less maintenance expense, and a healthier plant.
Aqua-Aid is an environmentally safe premium wetting agent that is ideal for turf, agricultural, and horticultural applications and can be injected through irrigation systems and/or tank mixed for spray application.
• Cost effective
• Reduces water surface tension
• Increases water penetration
• Reduces water usage
• Increases nutrient uptake
• Low application rates
• Compatible with most tank sprays
• Money back guarantee
Golf, Lawns and Sports Turf
Apply two applications 15 days apart at 2 to 4 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (6 to 13 L/ha in 800 L). Reapply at 2 to 4 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (6 to 13 L/ha in 800 L) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Irrigate after each application to remove the surfactant from the plant surfaces.
Inject two applications 15 days apart at 1 to 4 quarts per acre (3 to 10 L/ha). Reapply at 1 to 2 quarts per acre (3 to 5 L/ha) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Apply two applications 30 days apart at 3 pounds per 1,000 ft² (150 kg/ha). Reapply at 1.5 to 3 pounds per 1,000 ft² (75 to 150 kg/ha) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Irrigation is necessary to release Aqua-Aid from the carrier. Irrigate before next mowing or leave baskets off.
Apply when hand watering.
