Improved Water Retention with Organic Acid Redistribution System
- Increases number of hydrating sites
- Multi-branched hydrating soil surfactant
- Increased length of activity in soil
- Loosens and redistributes humic coatings from hydrophobic soil particles
OARS HS , Soil Hydrating Surfactant, is a combination of the university researched, field proven, and patented organic acid redistribution system, OARS, and multi-branched hydrating chemistry. OARS HS controls soil water repellency while providing uniform soil moisture and increased soil moisture retention.
Apply 4 to 5 ounces in 2 US gallons of water per 1000 ft² (130 to 160 ml in 8 L per 100 m²) at 30 day intervals. After an initial 5 ounce (160 ml) application, drought conditions can be best managed by applying 2 to 2.5 ounces in 2 US gallons of water per 1,000 ft² (60 to 80 ml in 8 L per 100 m²) at 15 day intervals.
For extreme drought conditions with high temperatures and/or increased soil water repellency, apply 6 to 8 ounces in 2 US gallons of water per 1,000 ft² (200 to 250 ml in 8 L per 100 m²) at 30 day intervals.
Irrigate with sufficient water to deliver OARS HS to the soil profile – 1/8 inch (3 mm) or more is recommended.
