Dr. Stan Kostka: Soil Surfactants and Improved Plant & Soil Health

In this 60-minute presentation,  Dr. Stanley Kostka of Aquatrols explores the effects that soil surfactants have on soil and foliar environments. He looks at surfactant-induced changes in the rhizosphere and examines the consequences for plant defenses against pathogens and abiotic stresses.

Two case studies highlight options that can improve water and chemical input efficiencies and lead to a more sustainable approach to turf management.
