Wetting agent application

I don't want to jinx us but so far this winter has been very mild and dry.  Looking back on our records, we have only had an inch and a half of precipitation since Thanksgiving.  Winter can often be the driest season of the year, especially if you don't get much snowfall.  Winter dessication, or drying out, is a common issue on bentgrass greens.  In order to keep our greens hydrated, our assistant superintendent, Michael, is applying a wetting agent to the greens today.  Wetting agents work to help the water penetrate the greens surface.  Once through the surface, the product helps the soil retain moisture longer, making it more available for the turf.
