Yucca Extract- Organic wetting Agent and surfactant 8oz
GS Plant Foods Yucca Extract provides several benefits for your plants. It is a natural way to greatly increase your plant’s water intake abilities, thus providing much greater drought tolerance. It also is terrific for improving your dry soils ability to retain moisture, preventing the ‘channels’ that sometimes develop in soils and cause the majority of water to run off or through your soils.
GS Plant Foods Yucca Extract is derived from Yucca Schidigera , a natural wetting agent and surfactant. This allows for plants and soils to uptake and retain water and nutrients, penetrating deeper into the plant’s root zone. Definitely helps to fix hydrophobic soils. Water and nutrients can be efficiently absorbed by leaves, and Yucca Extract greatly improves this efficiency. Leaves have a natural coating of cuticle cells that help plants retain water and form a barrier against pests and disease. This wax-like covering also causes water droplets to bead on the surface of leaves. Yucca Extract is a natural surfactant that breaks up the water droplets and allows the water to spread out on the leaf surface in a thin film. The film allows the water and nutrients to be absorbed more evenly by the plant and doesn’t leave spots behind on the leaves. This makes Yucca Extract a great additive to all of your regular foliar applications.
Yucca Extract also contain organic molecules that directly protect plants against damage from environmental stress. Yucca plants are great at sequestering and using water. Yucca is high in natural wetting agents called saponins. Saponins are steroidal-based natural chemicals that actually make water wetter, breaking the polarity of the water molecule. This allows for much higher rates of absorption. $34.95
