Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "evaluate three different wetting agents on their effectiveness in retaining moisture in the soil profile and their interaction with two different water sources" at the Center for Turf Irrigation and Landscape Technology (C-TILT) at the California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. Results show that "overall the surfactant treatments helped retain higher levels of soil moisture between irrigation cycles at 150mm from the soil surface compared to the untreated plots." Concludes that "Irrigaid and ACA 1897 treated plots had significantly higher amounts of soil moisture compared to the untreated plots but there was no statistical difference between the two treatments."
