Water Magnets
Reduce the overall watering requirements of plants, shrubs, trees, turf and agriculture with Ecologel Solutions’ Hydretain ES Plus Granular QD. A liquid blend of hygroscopic and humectant compounds, Hydretain acts like microscopic “water magnets,” drawing vapor molecules together to form plant useable droplets from moisture. The granular form is efficient for dry-spreader applications where liquid applications are impractical or labor intensive. At an application rate of 2.7 pounds per 1,000 square feet, each 40-pound bag will treat up to 14,800 square feet of turf. For more information, visit ecologel.com.
