TourTurf® Respond® Penetrator
Penetrant for the removal of excess surface water
A highly effective soil penetrating wetting agent. Respond® Penetrator increases water infiltration into the soil profile, allowing water to percolate through the whole of the soil profile in all turf areas.
The product works throughout the rootzone profile not just in the surface layer, ensuring uniform distribution of water throughout the whole soil profile.
Ideal for application to waterlogged areas, with regular use of the product reducing the surface moisture by up to 30%.
Feedback (February 2020) from the Danish Course Manager Kristoffer Harreby Vedel from Vejle Golfclub has taught us that the combined use of TourTurf® Dew Control, TourTurf® Penetrator and TourTurf® Autumn Zero in the wet, humid and mild Danish autumn/winter climate has helped to prevent disease very effectively (100 % disease-free without fungicides).
“As part of an integrated approach, aiming to achieve zero fungicide applications, we can confidently say that also this product combination will help a course manager to achieve becoming chemical-free.”
TourTurf® Respond® Penetrator contains a propriety blend of dicotyl sulphosuccinate surfactants and penetrants (a substance that lowers the surface tension of water).
5 – 10 litres per ha in a minimum of 700 litres of water.
TourTurf® Respond® Penetrator may be applied as a single application in extremely water logged conditions to aid the penetration of excessive water from the surface.
TourTurf® Respond® Penetrator may be applied as part of a managed application programme in areas of poor drainage,or naturally wet areas, apply at monthly intervals at the programme rate; no watering in is required.
