Title: LOW-FOAMING SURFACTANT CONCENTRATES FOR USE IN THE AREA OF PROMOTING PLANT GROWTH
Abstract:
The invention relates to a low-foaming wetting aid provided in the form of a highly concentrated, nevertheless, flowable and pourable aqueous concentrate based on surfactants for intensifying the penetration and spreading of water in the area where plants root when watering the same. The low-foaming wetting aid contains, as ecologically compatible surfactant constituents, alkyl(poly)glycoside compounds of the oil-in-water type (APG compounds) and low water-soluble alcohols which serve as viscosity controllers, and contains ecologically compatible anionic cotensides.
