Water Saving & Correction
Water management is one of the most important requirements of longer term or perennial crops as irrigation plays a vital role in maintaining soil or growing substrate pH, nutrient availability and rootzone bioactivity. Engage’s in depth research work in water saving and correction has led to the development of several prominent technologies which brings innovation to this important sector.
The most important of these is Aqualatus (also known as Integrate). Regarded as the benchmark of quality for all water saving technologies, Aqualatus has over 10 years of trials across the world in dozens of crops, both protected and in the field. Its formulation, unique to Engage, is saving water across the planet and is now seen as essential for crop production in water stressed parts of the world as it will save up to 50% in irrigation, fertiliser and energy. Aqualatus is one of the most important water saving technologies of the 21st century and as agriculture uses over 70% of the worlds water, the difference Aqualatus can make as more of the world adopts its use will be highly significant in the future!
Aqualatus Granular a dry formulation of Integrate technology, specifically formulated for extensive open field crops where water retention is required however the use of intensive irrigation is not possible.
Applying Aqualatus Granular to soils will improve water and nutrient distribution and utilisation. It does this by delivering Integrate technology to the rootzone to increase moisture content therefore expanding the rhizosphere potential so larger, healthier root systems can develop to access greater levels of nutrients which result in quality/yield benefits.
A unique water conditioner, acidifier and softener which is low hazard and highly effective at reducing and stabilising the long-term pH of irrigation and spray tank water.
Reactor is a blend of multiple components, created specifically to be added to water solutions to aid nutrient availability and maximise the performance of foliar applied nutrients and agrochemicals in situations where aggressive acids are not suitable or desired.
Reactor contains a long chain polymer-based water softener, a sequestering agent to isolate cationic , buffering agents to improve tank mix compatibility and complexed acidifiers to reduce pH and guard against pesticide hydrolysis.
