  • We know that we need to; •Improve our irrigation scheduling •Manage high and low priority blocks •Look at slope and topography •Manage weeds •Manage surface evaporation
  • With water in short supply it is imperative to ensure that water is used optimally by my fruit trees.
  • Soil limitations can result in inefficient irrigation and there are no immediate management practices that can improve these limitations; 1) Compaction, Poor infiltration and Run-off 2) Poor distribution of water in the soil 3) Sandy hydrophobic soils
  • What if you could optimize water use by improving infiltration into the soil and the distribution of the water in the root zone and reduce surface evaporation?
  • What if the soil could give just 4 or 5 percent more water to the plant?
  • Thankfully these problems can now be addressed with the application of TRANSFORMER!
  • TRANSFORMER is a new soil conditioner designed to improve water management from the irrigation system to the root! This unique formulation containing a special blend of surfactants and cold-pressed orange oil, is the perfect treatment for stubborn soils
  • TRANSFORMER improves infiltration thereby limiting run-off and ensuring a high soil water content reaches the roots. In the soil TRANSFORMER coats the soil particles making them more wettable ensuring that water movement is less restricted and water can be distributed throughout the root zone. A larger volume of wet soil increased the reservoir for your tree. Water uptake is improved and the soil has a greater buffer capacity for those extra hot days.
  • Bottom line: A larger percentage of applied water is available in the root zone and less water is wasted, therefore water is used more efficiently. Apply TRANSFORMER now early in the season to make best use of the benefits. Only one or two applications are needed per season. CONTACT YOUR LOCAL AGENT TODAY!
