This project compares three products from the Aqua-Aid family of soil surfactants and soil enhancers. These products will be compared with an industry standard wetting agent, Revolution, from Aquatrols as a positive control in the study. There will also be an untreated control included in the study. The projects will be conducted on two newly established putting greens. Project A) was conducted on a putting green constructed from calcareous USGA sand at the new Guelph Turfgrass Institute site. Project B) was completed on a putting green constructed from siliceous sand conforming to the United States Golf Association (USGA) construction method. 2021 results will provide a look at the function/efficacy of soil surfactants, with the goal of examining their long-term effects on rootzone and turfgrass properties as well as their effect on thatch accumulation and soil organic matter over subsequent seasons. Current and future results may also be used by the sponsor for marketing of these products in the Canadian market.
