This behavior causes several agronomic and economic challenges: Eucarol AGEs can be highly effective at delivering water into the root zone of crops growing in difficult-to-wet plant growth media. (patent pending) 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. • Increased run-off • Increased leaching • Reduced resource efficiency • Reduced yield and profits *2g of coir (10% moisture content) was placed on the surface of surfactant solutions (50mL, 3000mgL-1 ). The time required to completely hydrate the media was recorded in seconds. Products were evaluated at equivalent active matter. Shorter wetting times are more favorable. 70 85 100 100 110 170 185 190 360 Time (s) to Saturate Air-Dried Coir DRY MEDIA WET MEDIA Irrigation water movement into air-dried coir (10% VWC).
