Abstract/Contents:"The application of soil surfactants (wetting agents) has become a valuable tool for turf managers in treating localized dry spots on golf courses and athletic fields. In a study conducted at Michigan State University the wetting agent Primer (2.5 ml/m2), water (control), and an experimental soil conditioner(5 and 10 ml/m2) were applied every two weeks to two different soil types (sand and loamy sand) in columns with no grass cover. Volumetric soil moisture in different depths (5 cm, 15 cm, and 25 cm) was measured continously over the four month research period, and soil physical properties of the different rootzones were determined at the end of the study. Primer increased water retention in sand significantly compared to the control and the soil conditioner treatments. No significant differences between treatments were found in the loamy sand. Of all the soil physical parameters measured (hydraulic conductivity, bulk density, particle density, total porosity, capillary porosity, and air filled porosity), Primer treated sand differed significantly in particle density and total porosity compared to sand treated with water and the soil conditioner."
