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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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. Depending on the quantity of cross-linking, the polymer network is modified. This also gives rise to a trade-off between stability and absorption volume.
By using TRUE HYDROGEL, the substrate’s field capacity increases thereby causing a delay in the wilting point. 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.
Root dipping helps to stop the roots of the seedlings to get extremely dried while they are transplanted or transported over long distances. The TRUE HYDROGEL can be used as a mixture of this dipping activity..
It can be used throughout in the sod and lawns to endure faster development of the roots, good germination, and the overall growth of the lawns. The TRUE HYDROGEL is used to treat the grass in the parks and the garden and also in the golf courses.
Method to use:
TRUE HYDROGEL helps in decreasing the rate of mortality of the plant which can happen due to the shocks during transplanting and helps in root development thereby resulting in faster growth.
TRUE HYDROGEL in a gel form can be kept in taped up plastic pouches and left to freeze. The frozen gel can be used to transport the plant products which are heat-sensitive like the cut flowers as the true hydrogel has great resistance to high-temperature shock.
Hydroseeding used TRUE HYDROGEL as it helps in stabilizing the soils which are newly graded. It can be mixed with cellulose mulch or can be used alone to help uphold a minimum required level of the water on to the surface. If this is the case then even in the dry areas there will be a faster sprouting of the seedlings. It leads to the development of a faster and a uniform vegetation cover.
TRUE HYDROGEL products can also be used as an additive in drying feed litters used in breeding farms to replace the old generation of phosphate based-litters. This new generation of animal drying litter has many benefits:
