Listen: The Facts about Wetting Agent Chemistry (Part 2)

In a previous podcast on the Superintendent Radio Network, Agronomist Mica McMillan discussed the basic chemistry behind soil wetting agents.

In part two of the discussion, Mica delves further into the effects that different soil surfactant chemistries can have on things like root growth, the soil environment, and overall plant health.

“Not every surfactant works the same. Talk to your distributor, talk to researchers. They can be a great resource.”

McMillan asserts that not all surfactants are the same and explains that different chemistries come with their own sets of advantages and limitations.

She discusses factors that can determine the success or failure of a particular surfactant program and gives tips for choosing the right surfactant for your golf course.
