ThermX-70 is an organic wetting and sticking agent containing a concentrated plant extract called saponin. This natural compound is found in certain desert plants like Yucca and helps these plants overcome the adverse growing conditions of the desert. When placed in the root zone, ThermX-70 helps crop plants in much the same manner. ThermX-70 is a natural wetting agent that reduces surface tension. This action enhances better: Water penetration into the soil, Subbing of beds, Drainage of excess water from the root zone. Under stress conditions, steroid saponin increases the plant's ability to utilize water more efficiently, resulting in: Improved seed germination and stand establishment, Increased water uptake, and Improved fertilizer uptake. Water and nutrients are wasted if they aren't used by the plants. The root systems are often denied the water and nutrients needed because of soil compaction, poor water penetration and subbing, and by the action of excess salinity and alkali. ThermX-70 relieves these stresses, increasing crop yields.
