TourTurf® Respond® Extreme Curative is a wetting agent which will help to solve problems associated with Dry Patch and Fairy Rings in sports turf.
The wetting agent contains a proprietary blend of soil surfactants and organic acids. It works by breaking down hydrophobic coatings of sand and soil particles found in turf root zones.
TourTurf® Respond® Extreme Curative contains a specific blend of surfactants and organic acids designed to remove the cause for water repellent soils, and to remove the waxy mycelium deposits from fairy rings and dry patch on the sand in the root zone. Water repellency is caused by the waxy lipids that coat sand and soil particles making them hydrophobic.
The microorganisms responsible for making soils water repellent are the Basidiomycetes fungi which live and feed on organic matter (Thatch) in the rootzone.
