BIOWETT Premium

How it Works

BIOWETT Premium is a unique new formulation developed to fight the significant problems of hydrophobic soils in Western Australia, focusing on reducing the frequency of irrigation to combat the issues of water restrictions and lack of water resources.
BIOWETT Premium’s proprietary blend of unique surfactants and humectants maximise plant available moisture whilst optimising plant safety for use on premium fine turf.

Simply put, BIOWETT Premium reduces the water required to maintain premium turf by increasing water capture at the soil surface to then maximise & extend soil moisture retention evenly around the root zone for longer periods.

Key Features

  • Quality surfactant and humectant formulation.
  • Protects against localised dry spot.
  • Limits the periods of water stress.
  • Can be introduced prior to periods of extreme heat to minimize plant heat stress.
  • Improves root zone moisture retention over an extended period.
  • Exceptional turf safety characteristics.
  • Can safely mix & spray with other components.
  • Safe & easy to apply without the need for high water volumes.

Essential Data

  • Active Ingredient
    • Proprietary blend of polyethelyne glycol / ethoxylated alcohol mixture
  • Pack Sizes
    • 20L, 200L, 1000L
  • Situation
    • Greens, fine turf, sports turf, fairways, lawns and landscapes.

  • Critical Comments
    • Apply in at least 400L water per hectare. Apply prior to rainfall/irrigation to maximise moisture utilisation.
    • Irrigate immediately following application when temperatures are expected to exceed 30oC within 24 hours of application.
  • Application Timing
    • Apply in early spring to defend against evaporation as soil temperatures rise. Follow up with applications in early summer & autumn.
    • Mixing
    • Can safely mix & spray with other components.

    • Always read the product label before use.

WA Trials Prove Performance & Safety

BIOWETT Premium’s unique formulation of specialty surfactants and moisture retention agents has been proven over four years of WA turf trials to deliver superior greening and extended moisture retention. The WA trials also show that when applied correctly, the BIOWETT Premium formulation presents virtually no risk of grass burn.

Proven Safety

Alexander Park, WA 2016 - Mean Phytotoxicity Rating, 3 DAT.
BIOWETT Premium was tested against a number of other soil treatments on the market to assess its potential to cause plant burn (‘phytotoxicity’).

Notes: 0 = Nil, 1 = Slight, 2 = Moderate, 3 = Severe.

Proven Performance

Ryrie Reserve, WA 2016 - Soil Moisture % (0-50mm) 5 Weeks After Treatment.
BIOWETT Premium was tested against leading soil treatments to assess turf greening and extended (five weeks) soil moisture retention.
