Hydretrain isn’t your typical soil wetting agent. It was designed to enhance the way plant roots access soil moisture. It is most effective when used in very porous or sandy soils where moisture loss is a constant battle such as golf greens, playing fields, lawn, potted plants, and seedling plugs. Hydretrain is suited to plant establishment and has been proven to outperform water (crystals) storage granules.

Hydretrain works by absorbing and storing water as microscopic droplets on the root hairs, root tips and soil particles. This reduces soil moisture evaporation and significantly improves how water is used at the root zone, which reduces moisture stress and the number of watering cycles needed. It also reduces water repellency of non-wetting soils which maximises the effectiveness of any precipitation or applied irrigation.

Hydretain should be watered into moist soil to be effective as it shows no benefit when applied to the foliage of plants.
