Application Rates

Liquid Formulation
Add 25-100ml of Horti-Wet per cubic metre of compost or growing substrate.

To achieve this, dilute Horti-Wet at an 80:1 dilution rate (100ml in 8 litres of water). This should then be sprayed into 1000 litres of compost during mixing to ensure even distribution. For all other volumes of compost (i.e. bale quantities) the rate of incorporation needs to be changed pro rata while still adhering to the same dilution rate.For use in fertigation

Many growers prefer to add wetting agent at the initial watering stage. Horti-Wet should be applied at the rate of 25-100ml per 1000 litres of compost, and may be applied by dilutor/injector at 250ml - 1 litre per 60 litres of stock solution and diluted at 1% (1:100). This rate can also be used when treating containerised stock over multiple seasons or on prepared beds where water management is important.Granular

Formulation
This formulation of Horti-Wet (Horti-Wet granular) has proven to be extremely popular as a compost incorporated wetter. Its dry formulation on mini vermiculite is very easily mixed into compost without the need for additional water, making it ideal for the smaller grower or where watering compost during mixing is not advised or difficult.It is also ideal for top dressing containerised stock in situ or field grown stock and on any open beds.For compost incorporation, mix 125g – 500g per cubic metre of compost or substrate and for top dressing containerised stock, apply at a rate of 0.12g – 0.5g per litre of pot. For top-dressing on the ground use at a rate of 12g – 25g per square metre.
