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
Humi Acid with Soil Wetting Agents
Aqua-Root is a combination of Aqua-Aid penetrant and the proven nutrient chelator, Humate. Humate, the humic and fulvic acid formulated in Aqua-Root, is the most active humic and fulvic acid on the market today. The cation exchange capacity (CEC) for Aqua-Root is 500 – 600 MEQ / 100g. This high cation exchange capacity makes Aqua-Root three to four times more effective, ounce for ounce, than any similar product. Aqua-Root has significantly higher carboxyl content than is generally found for other humic acid substances.
The effectiveness of Aqua-Root is directly related to the ability to chelate and translocate the nutrients required by the plant and to promote a more stable soil/moisture relationship.
Aqua-Root offers widespread uses with all crops grown today – turfgrass, citrus, vegetables, ornamentals, etc. Through research, the Humate formulated in Aqua-Root has clearly demonstrated a significant positive effect on the growth and health of all crops. Research has also proven that Aqua-Root significantly increases the effectiveness of herbicides, fungicides and fertilizers.
• Increases the cation exchange capacity in the growing media
• Increases nutrient uptake
• Decreases leaching of nutrients
• Provides a uniform soil moisture profile
• Increases plant vigor and survivability
• Encourages deeper root growth
• Promotes faster and more complete root development
• Helps leach harmful salts
• Increases stress tolerance

Golf, Lawns and Sports Turf
Apply two applications 15 days apart at 1 to 2 ounces per 1,000 ft² in 2 gallons of water (3 to 6 L/ha in 800 L). Reapply at 1 to 2 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 2 quarts per acre (3 to 5 L/ha). Reapply at 1 to 2 quarts per acre (3 to 5 L/ha) at 30 day intervals or as needed.
Apply 5 to 7 pounds per 1000 ft2 (240 to 340 kg/ha) in the spring and fall.
Apply when hand watering.
