Precision Laboratories Introduces Vivax™ for Easier Water Management Across a Variety of Soil and Turf Types

WAUKEGAN, Ill. (January 22, 2014) – Managing water across a wide range of soils and turf types is challenging.  Conditions change and weather is unpredictable.  To take the guess work out of selecting a soil surfactant, Precision Laboratories has introduced Vivax to their proven line of Precision Soil Surfactants.

Using a combination of new, innovative surfactant technologies, Vivax is formulated for optimal hydration and infiltration across a wide range of soil and turf types and is economical for use on golf course fairways, in addition to greens and tees.

 Vivax takes the guesswork out of selecting a soil surfactant,” says Don Spier, vice president of Professional Turf Business at Precision Laboratories. “It contains an infiltration surfactant to move water through thatch and into tight soils, in addition to a unique polymer system structured to resist microbial breakdown and produce uniform wetting and volumetric water content.”

Recent research data from the University of Arkansas, available at, proved that five ounces of Vivax applied every 28 days resulted in statistically significant differences in volumetric water content uniformity and less localized dry spot.

“Most golf courses strive to maintain a volumetric water content of 15 to 20% throughout the root zone,” explains Spier. “Vivax will help them achieve those levels to produce the best playing surfaces.”

Vivax joins a proven family of existing Precision Soil Surfactants from Precision Laboratories, which includes Cascade Plus™, Duplex™, Magnus™ and EZ Tabs™. For more information about Precision Laboratories and its products, visit
