Season-Long Protection Against Water Repellency

Combat Water Repellency

Primer Select reduces soil water repellency that commonly occurs in the thatch and upper 1-2 inches of the soil profile of highly managed turf, particularly putting greens.

By managing soil hydrophobicity, Primer Select enhances the penetration and infiltration of water into the rootzone throughout the growing season.
