Earthcare Liquid Wetter-Aid is an effective solution to water repellency which occurs in most soils as they dry out. Liquid Wetter-Aid’s unique formulation ensures quicker wetting and re wetting of hydrophobic soils as well as long term soil conditioning and improved water holding benefits. Earthcare has brought together the leading liquid wetter, soil conditioning and water extending technology to produce an exceptional soil amendment product. Liquid Wetter-Aid reduces water loss by allowing water to penetrate the soil surface, aids uniform water distribution throughout the root zone and increases water holding capacity. This gives plants a greater opportunity to utilise all applied water and gives increased watering efficiency. Liquid Wetter-Aid remains active for many months, and makes watering, rainfall and liquid feeding more effective... saving water, time and money. It has the ability to increase soil water holding capacity by up to 75%. Simple, traditional, single component wetting agents may wet soil quicker but do not provide long term soil conditioning benefits.

  • Reduces soil surface water run off

  • Increases the water holding capacity of all soils
