Hydration A-Plus® Provides uniform water movement and consistent Plant & soil moisture while reducing sodium and Bicarbonates! 

2021 Surfactant Research Trial | Hydration A-Plus® was tested head-to-head against well known surfactants. Hydration A-Plus® significantly improved soil moisture consistency and turfgrass quality throughout the trial. Click Here to learn more and see the full 2021 study.

Research-Based Results: 

  • Lower Application Rates
  • Enhanced Turfgrass Quality
  • More Consistent Soil Moisture
  • Dissolves bicarbonates and frees calcium; Available soil calcium will then displace soil sodium.
  • Prevents LDS due to its ability to hold moisture in soils that are water repellent.


Hydration A-Plus® utilizes ALPHA MAT Solution Technology

ALPHA MAT Solutions- These are exclusive Plant Food Company products which utilize our proprietary Mineral Acid Technology as the foundation to each formulation. This long-lasting acid based material performs for 21-28 days by releasing tied up nutrients, plus contains a soil penetrant for uniform water movement and salicylic acid that helps the plant manage the available moisture. 


Will ALPHA MAT Solutions benefit you? When you get a heavy rainfall, does your turf “green up” dramatically a day after?  If you are nodding your head YES, then ALPHA MAT Solutions will work wonders for you. This overnight green up is likely due to high bicarbonate soils. Why does this happen? Rain water pH is low and this acidic rain water solubilizes tied-up calcium bicarbonate. The available calcium can displace the sodium, and overnight, you will witness a greener, healthier turf.

When you have tied up soil nutrients, they cause no harm, but they are also not usable. So, what breaks the bonds and makes these nutrients available? The answer: ACIDS. When you can acidify the moisture around the bonded nutrients, the acidity of the water (high amounts of hydrogen) will weaken the bonds allowing the bonded nutrients to be released. In other words, ACID based products, such as ALPHA MAT Solutions, will solubilize nutrients and make them more available for plant up-take.
