Hydretain® is made from a proprietary blend of hygroscopic humectant compounds that act like tiny water magnets to attract moisture vapor from the air between soil particle. This vapor would otherwise be unusable by plants and eventually lost to evaporation. Available in both liquid and granular forms, Hydretain’s revolutionary chemistry converts soil moisture back into a liquid form, efficiently transferring it to plant roots. Through this simple mechanism, Hydretain not only helps keep plants clear of daily wilt cycles and drought, but also contributes to more complete usage of water applied by rainfall and irrigation. This all translates into water conservation, reduced costs and labor, and healthier, more vigorous greenery.
Additionally, by managing soil moisture between watering cycles and/or rainfall, Hydretain reduces drought stress, and provides many other benefits such as, increased seed germination, enhanced nutrient efficiency, sod establishment, extended flower life and maximized crop production. Hydretain is produced using primarily organic based hygroscopic and humectant ingredients. It is safe to use on commercially grown food as well as residential vegetable and herb gardens, school, sports and playing fields, and golf courses. Each application of Hydretain lasts for up to three months.
