Use Water More Effectively
UpTake PROTM is a unique DDAC quaternary ammonium formulation and new class of surfactant for the greenhouse, indoor growing, nursery, farm, vineyard, orchard, and turf markets. The triple-action of UpTake PRO as a penetrant, spreader sticker, and wetting agent, enhances the performance of water when applied to soils or the foliage/bloom* of crops.
Applied through spray, sub or overhead irrigation systems, UpTake PRO can be safely used on crops like tomatoes, leafy greens, hemp, berries, flowers, shrubs and trees. When mixed together in a solution, it improves the performance of some companion products such as fertilizers.
Uptake PRO increases the permeability of biological membranes which facilitates penetration, thus increasing the performance of the companion chemistry. Improved penetration results in less water used for effective irrigation.
In solution with compatible chemistries, Uptake PRO helps hold chemicals onto the soil and/or leaf surface even during irrigation watering or rainfall. Being a positively charged chemical, it enables a bonding effect when the solution meets negatively charged chemicals, soil, plants, and pests.
Uptake PRO reduces the surface tension of water, enabling even coverage throughout hydrophobic soils and on foliage, thus lowering the amount of water needed to adequately hydrate the crop Amending irrigation water with UpTake eliminates puddling at the crown and channeling in the root zone, thus reducing an excessively wet environment for algae and diseases to flourish.
*Registered in California as a soil wetting agent only. Refer to the California Uptake label for use directions.
