Precision Laboratories, a leading provider of specialized chemistries for plants, seeds, soil and water, released its newest soil infiltration surfactant, Alypso. The product is designed help golf course superintendents and sports turf managers overcome the challenge of moving water into aggressive turf types.

Alypso is a naturally derived surfactant that speeds up the infiltration of irrigation through thatch and into hard-to-wet soils. This results in a decrease of run-off and standing water, allowing for firmer playing surfaces. It also improves uniformity of water in the root zone and increases the uptake of soluble plant nutrients.

Field trials conducted on bermudagrass fairways in Florida show that Alypso, applied at one pint per acre, reduced localized dry spot and improved turf quality 21 days after the initial application.

“We’re thoroughly impressed with the performance of Alypso, right out of the gate. It performs at low use rates, it is easy to pour, mix and store, and it can be injected or sprayed,” said Don Spier, vice president of turf and ornamentals at Precision Laboratories. “The fact that Alypso is naturally derived is an added benefit.”
