BENEFITS: SOIL MOIST products are not multi-use polymers that were developed for other industries. SOIL MOIST products are potassium based and specifically designed for the horticultural and agricultural industry. • Reduces plant watering by 50% • Reduces transplanting shock • Reduces plant stress due to lack of available water • Increases soil aeration • Cost-effective – lasts 3-5 years in the soil
APPLICATIONS LANDSCAPE INDUSTRY: Bare Root/Seedlings Mix one pound of SOIL MOIST FINES with 20-40 gallons of water. Pour the Fines in slowly and agitate the water by mixing with a paddle or with the force of the water being added. Let the product stand for at least 15 minutes. The longer the gel is allowed to stand, the tackier it will become and the better it will adhere to the roots. Dip the plant/tree immediately before planting. Adjust the slurry to the thickness that best adheres to the roots. One pound will treat up to 12,000 seedlings. The Hydro can be used as a packing medium for transporting bare rootstock. Dip or spray material on the rootstock.
TRANSPLANTING: Mix two ounces of SOIL MOIST granular per one foot of rootball. Mix a majority of the polymer around the planting hole, mix balance with backfill. Do not amend the top two inches with a polymer. Water liberally. The rate should be increased to three ounces per foot of rootball in sandy soils. 1/2 oz. per 4″ rootball 1 oz. per 8″ rootball
