OARS PS Granular

OARS PS Granular is a 3D Penetrating surfactant utilizing a unique multi-branched surfactant molecular structure to address the source of performance loss – biodegradation of the surfactant molecule by soil microbes. OARS PS Granular aids in controlling soil water repellency and helps provide uniform soil moisture. OARS PS Granular can be applied throughout the year to avoid the detrimental impact of water repellency stress and localized dry spots on turf and to increase the vigorous appearance of turfgrass. The increased performance can reduce hydrophobic conditions on a sustainable basis for up to 60 days. When used in accordance with product directions, OARS PS Granular is easy to use, not harmful to plants and can be applied at any time of the year to avoid the detrimental impact of water repellency stress and localized dry spots. OARS PS Granular is safe to plants when used as recommended.

Product Details

  • Increases water penetration
  • Provides firm, fast surfaces
  • Controls water repellency
  • Provides uniformity in soil moisture
  • Reduces localized dry spots

Product Details

Application rate: Apply OARS PS Granular at 160 – 240 KG/ Ha at 4 – 6 weeks interval. Wash in at 3 MM irrigation for best result. Function and longevity depending on profile conditions and climatically influences. Monitor moisture level to check on product activity before reapplication. OARS PS Granular can be used all year round even in autumn and winter where it can help to reduce moisture levels in top soils. 

OARS PS Granular can also be used in horticulture to reduce water consumption and improve plant conditions. It increases nutrient exchange due to better moisture control. Weight to volume equivalents for OARS PS Granular formulation: 160 KG = 10 L of OARS PS Liquid.

Aqua Aid Europe offers an extensive range of surfactant products for the professional turf industry. These surfactants can be split up into two major categories, state-of-the-art 3-D surfactants and conventional surfactants. The 3-D surfactants are the most advanced surfactants in the market. These surfactants are backed up with various independent research and have field-proven results for numerous of years by the end users. 

The multi-branch regenerating technology is completely different to other technologies currently used in the professional turf market. The difference between the traditional linear co-polymer molecules is that they are much higher in molecular weight and have multiple interactive sites (6 or 8 sites), therefore each branch is a wetting agent by itself. This branching will increase the interaction between the surfactant and the soil, causing very consistent moisture levels within the treated surface. The combination of the higher molecule weight and branching will positively affect the biodegradation of the product. As one branch is removed via biodegradation, a new lower molecular surface active species is regenerated, which will continue to manage the water in the soil.

This technology is incorporated in all of our 3-D surfactants reducing hydrophobic conditions on a sustainable basis.
Independent research has shown the surfactants are able to reduce water use of over 30 % while keeping a consistent turf quality.
