Increase production and reduce cost
Farms, residential and commercial landscapers benefit by using Moisture Mizer™

Farms, turf farms, and residential and commercial landscapers use Moisture Mizer™ for: The industrial benefits of Moisture Mizer™ are:
  • increase crop yields
  • decrease growing time
  • turf



Mining reclamation

Side by side comaprison Mining inevitably disturbs land. With Moisture Mizer™, reclamation is more effective, faster, less expensive. If there is any question Moisture Mizer™ works, take a look at this strip mine showing the substantial difference in germination.

For construction of new fairways:

1. Apply small or medium grain Moisture Mizer™ to the bare soil at a rate of 150 pounds to 225 pounds per acre.
(3.5 to 5 lbs. per 1000 square feet).

2. work / till the polymer into the top 2 to 3 inches of the soil.

3. Then seed in the usual manner.

4. Reduce the application of fertilizer by 10 - 12 %, due to the polymer's ability to store and slow release the fertilizer.

For a lusher, faster established fairway, increase the Moisture Mizer™ to 275 to 325 pounds per acre (approximately 6375 lbs. per 1000 square feet) worked - in / tilled - in to the top 3 to 5 inches of soil. Reduce fertilizer application by 10 - 12 percent.

For easier application: mix the Moisture Mizer™ with an equal amount of DRY sand, then apply by fertilizer spreader. The dry sand lets the applicator see where he has been, reduces the pour through speed making for more even application, and it gives the light weight so it isn't as likely to blow away in the wind. Wet sand will hydrate the polymer, and cause it to clog the spreader.

For construction of new greens:

1. Apply Moisture Mizer™ to the bare soil at a rate of 1 to 1.5 per pounds per 100 square feet.
Some rules of thumb:
10 - foot diameter circular green covers 78 square feet
20 - foot diameter green covers 314 square feet
30 - foot diameter green 707 square feet, and
40 - foot diameter green covers 1257 square feet

2. Work or till the Moisture Mizer™ into the top 3 to 4 inches of the soil.

3. Reduce the amount of fertilizer used application by 10 / 12 %.

For application to existing fairways and green:

When Moisture Mizer™ is applied to existing grass areas, a reduction in water usage by as much as 35% can be realized. You will also see significant improvement in both appearance and heartiness. Should you wish to treat established grass areas please contact our office for specific instructions tailored to your application.

Note: For economy reasons you can reduce the suggested application amounts given above, but the optimum savings in water usage reduction, and optimal growth / appearance will not be achieved. Each pound of Moisture Mizer™ added to the soil will increase the water holding capacity of the turf by 20 to 35 gallons, so even reduced application rates will result in significant water savings and better grass growth. The roots of the treated grass can increase their mass by up to 50% over untreated soils; thereby, gaining strength and drought resistance. The treated soil is more resilient, and resists compression damage from foot traffic better.



turf and sod production

Turf and sod treated with Moisture Mizer™ is healthier, and costs less to produce
How to use

1. Measure the area to be treated.

square foot dimensions
square feet

If your planting a bed or garden row 1 to 3 inches deep, calculate the square feet of your planting area by multiplying the (w) width x (l) length of your garden and then dividing by 12 then refer to application chart for bedding plants, garden row, hills for melons, squash, etc.

For example 12 in (w) x 12 in (l) / 12 in = 1 square foot.
Then refer to the appropriate chart and multiply the number of square feet times the product measurement indicated.

 

cubic measurements
cubic measurement

If the area you are planting is deeper than 3 inches or your are planting large root masses calculating cubic feet may be more beneficial. To calculate cubic feet measure and multiply the area's
(w) width x (l) length x (d) depth.

For example 1 ft (w) x 1 ft (l) x 1 ft = 1 cubic foot where as 1.5 ft (w) x 1.5 ft (l) x 2 ft = 4.5 cubic feet.

Then refer to the appropriate chart and multiply the number of cubic feet times the product measurement indicated.


For turf production: for sod

2. Determine the amount of Moisture Mizer™ recommended.
For turf a rate of 200-250 pounds per acre or 4.75 to 6 lbs. per 1000 square feet.

3. Apply Moisture Mizer™ to bare soil of the area to be used for turf establishment.

4. Work or till into the top 3 to five inches of soil.

5. Seed or sprig in the usual manner.

Note: It is recommended you reduce the application of fertilizer by 10 -12 %, due to the ability of Moisture Mizer™ to store fertilizer, slowy-releasing over time and reducing loss due to leaching.

A alternative application mix with an equal amount of dry sand and then apply by fertilizer spreader. The dry sand lets the applicator see where he has been, reduces the pour through speed making for more even application, and it gives the light weight polymer some throw weight so it isn't as likely to blow away in the wind.

Caution: Do not use wet sand. Wet sand will hydrate the polymer, and cause it to clog the spreader.

For sodding:

2. Determine the amount of Moisture Mizer™ recommended.
For sod a rate of 200-250 pounds per acre or 4.75 to 6 lbs. per 1000 square feet.
If the sod to be laid has been treated with Moisture Mizer™ when it was started, reduce the amount of polymer to 150-200 pounds per acre (3.5 to 4.5 lbs. per 1000 square feet),

3. Till or work medium or small grain Moisture Mizer™ into the top 3 to 5 inches of bare soil.
Visible lines where the individual pieces of sod abut can detract from the appearance of a sodding application. The lines will disappear or be greatly reduced if a mixture of 1/3 dry dirt, 1/3 Moisture Mizer™, and 1/3 dry sand is poured into the cracks where the pieces about. Be careful to allow for the expansion of the polymer - do NOT fill the cracks more than 1/3 full, or the mixture will expand out of the cracks!

4. Water thoroughly to hydrate the polymer.

Shipping

If the sod has to travel some distance to the application site, or there will be some delay between harvesting it and applying it, the damage done to the roots can be reduced by dipping the underneath side of the sod into a slurry made hydrated with small or fine grain Moisture Mizer™ at a rate of one pound per 20 to 30 gallons of water. This treatment will double the time the sod can be handled with minimal damage.

Note: In very sandy soils increase the amount of recommended polymer by 10-15%.

For construction of new fairways:

1. Apply small or medium grain Moisture Mizer™ to the bare soil at a rate of 150 pounds to 225 pounds per acre.

The dry sand lets the applicator see where he has been, reduces the pour through speed making for more even application, and it gives the light weight so it isn't as likely to blow away in the wind. Wet sand will hydrate the polymer, and cause it to clog the spreader.
