Climate change and population growth is putting pressure on water availability. Water conservation practices in amenity turf and agricultural sectors are vital to ensure responsible usage. As every drop matters, we can contribute to sustainable water use through good water conservation practices and product selection.

HITAS is experienced in the practices of water conservation.  With a range of products on offer, HITAS is able to formulate a complete product offering relating to smart water use.

Agricultural Water Conservation Agents

Water conservation agents can reduce irrigation requirements by up to 50% by limiting water loss through evaporation and retaining moisture within the root zone.

Penetrant Wetting Agent

Penetrant wetting agents work by reducing the surface tension of water, this helps water move down from the surface through the soil profile to the root zone. Penetrant wetting agents can be used as a water conservation agent to maximize the effectiveness of irrigation on large amenity areas or to remove excess moisture away from the playing surface.

Fairway Wetting Agent 

Water conservation agent specifically designed to increase irrigation efficiency by reducing surface run off and evaporation.

Curative Wetting Agent

Curative wetting agents are designed to be applied in areas with existing hydrophobic soil. The addition of an organic acid removes the hydrophobic coatings with a mild ‘cleansing’ action. It works in combination with a surfactant blend consisting of both spreading, penetrating, and block co-polymer surfactants to ensure moisture can be distributed evenly throughout the soil profile.

Programme Application Wetting Agent

Programme application wetting agent are designed to create a thin interface of water attached to hydrophobic soil particles. It provides superior spreading and penetrating properties to ensure the turfgrass surface is dry. Any subsequent irrigation or rainfall naturally penetrates though the upper level into the rootzone which creates a firmer playing surface. The product works simultaneously through continuous irrigation cycles.

Dew Disperser

Dew Dispersers are used to reduce dew formation. The strong binding capacity of the disperser enables the product to adhere to the leaf surface whilst simultaneously reducing surface tension of the water molecules and preventing the formation of dew droplets.

Wetting Agent Granules

Wetting agent granules are easy to apply across wide or localised areas. They are used to improve water management and for the treatment of localised dry patch. The same chemistry is used in liquid water conservation agents.

Wetting Agent Hose End & Irrigation Tablets

A wetting agent for use through hose end pellet applicators. Wetting Agent Hose End & Irrigation Tablets are ideal for hand watering high spots or other areas prone to extreme stress.

The tablets are designed to improve hand watering for superior control of dry patch and to enhance the recovery of damaged, drought-stressed turf. The tablet dissolves evenly during application to ensure the wetting agent is applied consistently.

Adjuvants

Adjuvants ensure maximum leaf uptake of active ingredients along with liquid fertilizers, biostimulants and other turf management products. The product can be used in many situations where fast and efficient uptake of foliar products is critical.
