Abstract/Contents:Discusses wetting agents. States that "wetting agents have become invaluable tools in...turf management where fast and firm is a mandate and conservation of water is becoming a major issue." Discusses three possible factors to consider when purchasing a wetting agent including; "1)what is the application interval? 2) How much will it cost? 3) What is the potential for phytotoxicity? [and] 4) Are the claims backed by independent field trials?"
