Understanding Water Repellency in Soils

In this one-hour presentation, Aquatrols Territory Manager Ken Mauser takes a look at the science behind water repellency in soils. Mr. Mauser explains that water repellency is a natural part of the growing process that cannot be “cured,” but instead must be treated over time.

After looking at the chemistry behind water repellency, Mr. Mauser discusses methods for treatment, including cultural practices and the use of soil wetting agents.
