Where to use

  • icon Long Description

    FourPlay is a unique blend of 4 proven technologies that maximize water efficiency within the soil profile, improving water penetration and increasing nutrient availability while controlling and eliminating LDS (localized dry spots):

    Made with:
    Hydretain Root Zone Moisture Manager –
    Hydretain is the only water management technology that converts soil moisture vapor into plant usable water droplets. A blend of hygroscopic humectants, Hydretain attracts and condenses water molecules from the soil airspace to form droplets within the root zone. By making use of moisture that would be lost to evaporation, Hydretain reduces watering requirements by up to 50% or more.

    SeaXtra™ Proprietary Seaweed Extract-
    Sourced from high quality Ascophyllum nodosum, SeaXtra contains synergistic bioactive components and organic content that improve nutrient availability and increase stress tolerance and optimize the conditions for natural root development. Seaweed extract also provides a food source for soil microbes and will help stimulate microbial activity.

    Renewable Resource Non-ionic Surfactant –
    Designed specifically to allow FOURPlay to penetrate through thatch layers and hydrophobic soils, down to and throughout the root zone where Hydretain is designed to function.

    Potassium Humate Soil Conditioner –
    Source of carbon that encourages beneficial soil biology, improves soil structure, increases soil water holding capacity and cation exchange capacity (CEC).

  • icon Problems Addressed

    • Extreme drought stress
    • Persistent localized dry spots
    • Hydrophobic soils
    • Soil conditions that inhibit root development

  • icon Application Instructions

    FourPlay is a concentrated formula and must be diluted prior to application. Minimum dilution rate 15:1 (water to FourPlay). FourPlay may be applied through fertigation, soil drench or conventional spray. It may be applied alone or tank mixed with other products.✝

    Established Turf:
    Initial application – Apply 9 oz. of FourPlay diluted in a minimum of one gallon of water per 1,000 sq. ft of turf (3 gallons of FourPlay per acre). Water in with at least 1/10 inch of water within the first hour to ensure FourPlay is washed off foliage and into the soil. Within 24 hours, follow with enough additional water to carry FourPlay down to and throughout the root zone. (The amount of additional water required to carry FourPlay throughout the root zone is dependent on the depth of the root zone of the treated area. Usually 1/4 to 1/2 inch of water is required.)

    Repeat monthly at 3 oz. of FourPlay diluted in one gallon or more of water per 1,000 sq. ft of turf (1 gallon of FourPlay per acre). Additional FourPlay may be applied if necessary to correct extremely difficult localized dry spots.

    Turf Establishment Including Sodding, Seeding and Sprigging:
    Apply FourPlay at the same rates as established turf. For hydroseeding, mix in the tank at a rate of 9 oz per 1,000 sq ft of hydroseeding area.

    Trees, Shrubs & Individual Plants:
    Dilute FourPlay at a rate of 2 oz. per gallon of water and apply by drench thoroughly saturating the root zone. For maximum effectiveness on trees apply 4 to 8 ounces of concentrate for each inch of trunk diameter. Dilution rate is variable from 50:1 to 300:1.

    Potted or Containerized Plants:
    Dilute FourPlay at a rate of 2 oz. per gallon of water and apply by drench, thoroughly saturating the planting media. Media should be dry enough to hold as much diluted FourPlay as possible. FourPlay may be applied through existing injectors at rates between 50:1 and 100:1. Higher dilution rates may require multiple applications to achieve desired results.

    Large Planters & Gardens:
    Dilute FourPlay at a rate of 2 oz. per gallon of water or through injectors at a rate of 50:1 to 100:1 and apply at a rate of 2 ounces of concentrate per 60 sq. ft of area. One gallon treats 4,000 square feet.

    For Best Results:
    Apply to damp soil. Water thoroughly when re-watering FourPlay treated plants. FourPlay is biodegradable. For maximum effectiveness reapply monthly at a 1/3 rate or when required watering becomes more frequent. Reapply if a reduction in watering is not apparent within the first two weeks.
