• Soil Penetrant
Stratum is a liquid surfactant that enhances wettability of soils and/or root substrates thereby improving penetration of water and other water soluble materials.
Improved water penetration leads to better water infiltration and minimization of water run-off and evaporation.
Stratum provides increased soil moisture levels helping promote a better growing environment for crops, turf and ornamental plants.
Stratum helps reduce soil crusting thereby making soil tillage easier.
Stratum can be applied by any conventional farm spraying or irrigation injection system including boom sprayer, flood irrigation, center pivot and hand-held sprayers.
Stratum is formulated for use on cultivated or no-till soil, pasture, bare soil and potting/media mixes.
Use Rates For Soil Applications For Agriculture
General Rate: 6 to 12 fl. oz. of Stratum diluted in 15 to 20 gallons of water per acre
Sandy Soils: 6 to 10 fl. oz. of Stratum diluted in 5 to 20 gallons of water per acre at least twice per year
Heavy Clay Soils: 8 to 12 fl. oz. of Stratum diluted in 15 to 20 gallons of water per acre
Use Rates For Soil Applications For Turf
General Rate: Apply Stratum to highly maintained turf areas at a rate of 2 to 6 fl. oz. diluted in 1 to 2 gallons of water per 1,000 square feet; dilution with 2 gallons per 1,000 square feet is preferred. Use the lower rate when frequent, weekly applications are being made. Use the higher rate with infrequent applications or when applying product to fine textured, clayey soils.
Irrigation Injection: Stratum can be injected into irrigation systems at a rate of 4 to 8 fl. oz. per acre initially, followed by 2 fl. oz. per acre during subsequent irrigations, if needed.
Soil Mixes or Soil-less Container Mixes: Apply 30 fl. oz. of Stratum diluted in 10 to 20 gallons of water per 10 cubic yards of mix.
