Product Overview

Hydretain ES Plus is a specialized product in root zone moisture management that converts soil moisture vapor into plant-usable water droplets. It cuts down watering requirements by 50% or more. It also reduces irrigation demands and localized dry spots. This product also serves as an adjuvant which increases nutrient uptake of plants. It also delays wilting of flowers and improves plant establishment. It is excellent for use in turfs, ornamental plants, trees, shrubs, and agriculture. It is designed for large-scale applications. Biodegradable and can be reapplied every three months. Available in a 2.5-gallon container.

If Hydretain ES Plus is applied to open flower blooms, rinse with water to reduce the possibility of Hydretain pulling moisture from sensitive flower petals.


Dilute with water before applying. Minimum dilution rate 15:1 (water to Hydretain). Hydretain ES Plus may be tank-mixed or applied through injectors and fertigation systems.

For turfs, apply 9 oz. of Hydretain ES Plus per 1,000 sq. ft. (3 gallons per acre) by spray or drench. Water in with at least 1/10 inch of water within the first couple of hours to ensure Hydretain has washed off foliage and into the soil. Within 24 hours, follow with enough additional water to carry Hydretain down to and throughout the root zone. (The amount of additional water required to carry Hydretain throughout the root zone is dependent on the depth of the root zone of the treated area.) Reapply once every 3 months or maintain monthly at 1/3 rate after initial full-rate application.

For best results, water thoroughly when re-watering Hydretain ES Plus treated plants. Hydretain ES Plus is biodegradable. For maximum effectiveness reapply every three months or when required watering becomes more frequent. Reapply if a reduction in watering is not apparent within the first two weeks.

    The mother of all Wetting agents

    By Paul on 09/24/2023

    Verified Purchase

    I use Hydretain primarily in summertime to cut down on the amount of watering that I have to do in my lawn. Since I have started using this product my water bill has decreased considerably although I make sure it's not high by using manual sprinklers which I control. I have no problem moving them around whenever I need to. This season so far I have only had to used it once due to the amount of rain we have been getting in Westchester County NY where I live.
