Soil Moist Water Absorbing Polymer Crystal - 8 Oz.

Soil Moisturizing Polymer Medium-Sized Crystals

This product, when incorporated into a soil or a substrate, absorbs and retains large quantities of water and nutrients, becoming a gel. It then easily releases the absorbed water and nutrients, enhancing plant growth by allowing the plant to have water and nutrients available at will.

Water absorbing crystals are useful for forestry, horticulture, transplanting, and large scale farming. They can be:
  • Pre-hydrated and implemented directly in the field
  • Incorporated into a substrate (dry or hydrated) and used for nurseries/potting mix
  • Implemented in the sowing coulter during crop sowing, using a pneumatic micro granular spreader

Water holding capacity is dependent on the electrolyte concentration in the water; this capacity varies between 100-200 times the polymer's weight in substrate. A sandy soil treated with 3 grams of water absorbing crystals per kilogram of soil holds water twice as long as untreated soil.
