What is TRUE HYDROGEL?

One of the common things between human and plants is that they both require water and nutrients for their growth and development. But the following are some of the factors which can affect the growth and productivity of plants, fruits, and crops:

    • One of the major problems is drought.
    • Adverse physical and chemical properties of the soil also affect the plant productivity. Soils may develop macro-pore space which results in low soil aeration and further causes low infiltration rates and low water retention.

As a solution to the above problem TRUE HYDROGEL comes to the rescue which acts as a water retainer. Unlike some other products available which themselves become hydrated, TRUE HYDROGEL is known to have a property whereby when it is integrated into the soil it absorbs a large amount of water and nutrients as well as easily releases them too thereby providing the plant with the water and nutrients through its absorption – release cycles. Thus Truehydrogel works on three principles , absorb retain and release to enhance the growth of the plants.

What TRUE HYDROGEL composed of?

TRUE HYDROGEL is generally composed of a 3-dimensional polymer network structure which is a range of superabsorbent anionic polyacrylamide polymers. Co-polymers of potassium acrylate and acrylamide are cross-linked and are water soluble. These become gel on absorbing water and have a capacity of absorbing distilled water up to 500 times their weight.

How TRUE HYDROGEL works?

A network is formed by cross-linking wherein the polymeric chains in the TRUE HYDROGEL that are parallel to each other and regularly linked. Through osmosis, the water is drawn into the molecules as soon as it comes in contact with these chains from where it rapidly migrates to the inner of the polymer network and gets stored for later use. These polymers release as much as 95% of the absorbed water into the soil when the soil dries out.

Why TRUE HYDROGEL?

Our TRUE HYDROGEL sticks to the root of the plants to absorb water and nutrients during the availability of water and retain it.

On dry condition when there is a scarcity of water our TRUE HYDROGEL releases the water and nutrient through its Absorb, Retain and Release cycles.Thus TRUE HYDROGEL increases the water holding capacity of soils for several years.

Benefits

Amazing absorption capacity

The TRUE HYDROGEL has the ability to absorb and release the water continuously over a period of several years. It has a special feature of rewetting itself quickly even when it has been dehydrated completely.

In aqueous medium

The water holding and absorption capacity of TRUE HYDROGEL decrease in an aqueous medium due to the presence of electrolytes. This influence of salts is the reason for the fact that its water holding capacity in a substrate varies around 100-150 times its weight.

Reduces the effect of leaching

Prevents water and nutrient loss due to leaching. Fertilizers can be stored in the network for a longer duration thereby providing the buffering effect on the availability of the fertilizers.

Delay in the wilting point

The holding capacity of the soil increases and the wilting point is delayed, thereby reducing the irrigation frequency to as low as 50%. 2 grams of TRUE HYDROGEL added to 1 kg of sandy soil increases the water holding capacity of the soil to twice as compared to the untreated soil.

Reduction in labor cost

As the watering frequency is reduced by 30% to 50% due to an increases water holding capacity of the soil, it reduces the labor cost and also the amount of water required.

Biodegradation

Protecting the environment by eliminating the problem of drought and groundwater pollution. Also helps in saving water as now less amount of water is needed. It is also biodegradable as it is sensitive to the action of ultraviolet rays. The UV rays can break the bond and degrade the polymer into oligomers (molecules of much smaller size) making it much more sensitive to the aerobic and anaerobic processes of microbiological degradation. Therefore, the TRUE HYDROGEL can degrade naturally in soils (up to 10% – 15% per year).

Uses

Application

How to use?

Dry Application

Depending on whether the quantity of soil to be mixed in is a large or a small amount. For large amounts like for the backfill around trees and the shrubs use 2-5 kg of TRUE HYDROGEL/m3 or 1 litre of soil. For smaller quantities of soil, use 5 grams of TRUE HYDROGEL for 1 litre of soil. The soil needs to be thoroughly watered after treating with TRUE HYDROGEL. Around 50-150 grams of the TRUE HYDROGEL can also be used on new or seeded turf by using sower machines.

Wet Application

Certain small plants’ roots and seedlings can be directly dipped into the already prepared TRUE HYDROGEL before the plants are actually planted. For this purpose, use 5 grams of TRUE HYDROGEL for 1 litre of soil. But make sure that enough space should be left for planting the plant in the pot or hole as obviously the dry granules when added into water swell up to a size much more than their original size, therefore, keeping a margin of 15% to 20% is a must.

Broadcast Application

For broadcast application, the TRUE HYDROGEL is properly mixed and incorporated in the soil at a recommended depth of 4 to 6 inches i.e. 10 to 15 cm before sowing or planting the seed or during fertilizer application. It can be blended with organic fertilizer with a manure spreader or with dry bulk fertilizer with a fertilizer spreader.

Banded Application

Using a starter fertilizer row bander TRUE HYDROGEL is applied in the crop or plant furrows alone or blended with dry bulk fertilizer or seed by using side-dress application equipment. It can also be blended with liquid starter fertilizer. Grain drill can also be used in place of row bander but only in low relative humidity environment. Apart from using single operation machines, the TRUE HYDROGEL can also be applied using combined planters and tillage equipment.

Greenhouse Application

Mix the TRUE HYDROGEL into the plant media at a concentration of 1 to 3 g/l or 1 to 3 kg/m3 of the substrate before planting. Irrigation is required immediately after the planting is done in the container till the soil gets saturated.

Application at Transplant

In this, the TRUE HYDROGEL is mixed with the soil extract or plant substrate. Depending on the root volume, climatic conditions, transplant height, species the application rate varies from 3 to 40 grams dry granules per tree or shrub transplant.
If it is to be done at an individual level, contacting an agronomic technical representative is advised.
Method of use:

  • It is applied in phases and is recommended to apply 1/3 of the dosage directly into the planting hole and the remaining 2/3 is mixed with the fill material.
  • Some part of the soil is left untreated for the final coverage of the soil.
  • The fills material is packed tightly.
  • The transplants are irrigated until the soil saturates.

Using pre-hydrated TRUE HYDROGEL

It is made by adding TRUE HYDROGEL to water followed by continuous and slow stirring. It can also be added to a stream of water while filling the nurse tank. It is left to swell for about 30 minutes time when the gel is made and ready to u

Penetrates the hard soils with the help of a jackhammer mechanism specifically at depths ranging from 6 to 48 inches (15 – 120 cm) without damaging the roots. Then the air is pressurized into the soil using the injector pulse which helps to create cracks and free space. And then finally, the TRUE HYDROGEL is injected into these newly created spaces.

Soil Mixes

soil_mixes

When mixed with substrate it helps in reducing the stress of water. It ensures a faster growth of seedlings and a better binding of transplants and cuttings with the root. The frequency of irrigation reduces. It is ideal for hanging plants, houseplants, and containers with the substrate. It has to be mixed evenly into the substrate and the amount to be added depends on the type of the substrate, water requirements, weather conditions, and the characteristics of the plants and cultivation. It basically depends on the how preamble the substrate is: More preamble, more is the TRUE HYDROGEL required.
Method to use:

  • Check as to how preamble the substrate is.
  • If the substrate is more preamble in nature, made of wood fibre, bark or coconut-residue, then the recommended amount of TRUE HYDROGEL to be added is 2 – 3 kg/m3.
  • If the substrate is less permeable, such as peat or composts, the recommended amount of TRUE HYDROGEL to be added ranges from 1 to 2 kg/m3.

Mixing with Fertilizers

If mixed dry during the fertilizer preparation and in fact when the fertilizers are manufactured, it helps in reducing the leaching and therefore protecting the environment. As a result of this, the plants become more capable of maintaining or even increasing the yield and also lead to better development of the roots of the plants. Not only this, even the quantity of fertilizers required is reduced by 15% to 30%.
