    • ADJUVANTS FOR AGROCHEMICALS Eucarol AGEs Wetting Agents for Plant Growth Media Mineral soils, peat moss, wood-based substrates, coir fibers, and other forms of soilless media DRY WET MEDIA MEDIA naturally resist uniform hydration at low moisture contents. This behavior causes several agronomic and economic challenges: Irrigation water movement into air-dried coir (10% VWC). Note sections of wet and dry media. • Increased run-off • Reduced resource efficiency • Increased leaching • Reduced yield and profits Surfactants are commonly applied to ornamental potting mixes to improve hydration and maintain the proper air- to-water balance to support plant growth and development. Eucarol AGEs Time (s) to Saturate Air-Dried Coir can be highly effective at 360 delivering water 170 185 190 into the root 70 85 100 100 110 zone of crops growing in difficult-to-wet plant growth media. (patent pending)*2g of coir (10% moisture content) was placed on the surface of surfactant solutions (50mL, 3000mgL-1). Thetime required to completely hydrate the media was recorded in seconds. Products were evaluated at equivalentactive matter. Shorter wetting times are more favorable.
