Primer Select is a high-performance soil surfactant that is the foundation of an effective rootzone management programme. It enhances turfgrass uniformity by establishing matrix flow in the rootzone, thus increasing water use efficiency in treated areas of highly managed turf. By combating water repellency throughout the entire rootzone and moving water deeper into the profile where established root systems are, the utilization of water will be more effective and the turf’s resistance to stress and disease will be greater.

Primer Select allows you to adjust the application rate and frequency to more closely match your soil type and spray program needs. Primer Select is safe throughout the entire growing season for all turf species and in all climates.

Water naturally follows the path of least resistance, leading to channeling or “fingered flow.” If water does not move uniformly through the soil profile it becomes more prone to developing water repellency. Primer Select establishes “matrix flow” — the uniform downward and lateral movement of water and/or solutes in soil profiles — which creates a uniform wetting front to prevent the development of water repellent conditions. The overall result of Primer Select use is effective rootzone management, the foundation for healthy, attractive, uniform turf and a manageable maintenance budget.

Benefits

  • Establishes Matrix Flow through the rootzone
  • Penetrates water more deeply through the rootzone
  • Enhances turfgrass uniformity
  • Increases water efficiency
  • Safe to use throughout the entire growing season
  • Control the application rate and frequency to more closely match your soil type and spray system needs
  • When used in conjunction with a fungicide, Primer Select increases water infiltration and percolation through hydrophobic mycelia, allowing the fungicide to penetrate deeper into the soil profile where it can work more effectively
