TourTurf® Respond® Extreme L.L. (Long Lasting) is a unique wetting agent formulation designed to work consistently and with increased longevity within any turf rootzone.
With typically 20-35% longer wetting agent chain lengths than industry standard wetting agents, this long chain molecule in Respond® Extreme LL also has a high molecular mass which makes it resistant to being flushed out of the rootzone by irrigation water.
TourTurf® Respond® Extreme L.L. is resistant to microbial degradation in adverse climatic conditions where the temperatures are typically over 20 C.
The unique formulation of TourTurf® Respond® Extreme L.L. ensures that both irrigation water and hydrophobic soil particles can more easily interact with each other in the soil profile, thereby making a water repellent soil completely non-water repellent within a few hours.

Respond® Extreme L.L. is formulated to perform 3 tasks all in one product; firstly, as a wetting agent, secondly as a penetrant and thirdly as a water conservation agent.
This formulation makes the product highly effective in a range of situations where there could be issues from ‘Dry Patch’, to irrigation irregularities, hydrophobic soils or poor water penetration due to denser thatch layers.
The product will be effective when used either curatively or in a preventative manner, resulting in better water and fertiliser uptake by the plant.
The specific formulation gives quick penetration through the turf surface, avoiding degradation by ultraviolet light and is more resistant to microbial breakdown in hot soil temperatures during the summer.
The outcome of these factors means an increased firmness of the greens, with a more resistant surface to pitch marks and footprints.
The application rates for the product is flexible and is related to temperature and on-site individual experience.
