Water Retaining Polymer for Soils and Substrates These medium-sized water absorbing crystals become a gel upon contact with water, increasing the water holding capacity of soils, enhancing plant growth, delaying the wilting point, and providing a buffer effect against climatic hazards. Total water holding capacity depends on the electrolyte concentration in water; in distilled water, the water retaining polymer can absorb up to 400 times its weight, while in substrates its capacity varies between 100-200 times its weight. In addition to its water retention benefits, the absorption/desorption cycle creates soil porosity, improving aeration balance. Water absorbing crystals are useful for forestry, horticulture, transplanting, and large scale farming. Suggested uses: Pre-hydrate and implemented directly in the field Incorporate into a substrate (dry or hydrated) and use for nurseries/potting mix Implement in the sowing coulter during crop sowing, using a pneumatic micro granular spreader Application guidelines: Turf and ornamentals: Trees: 1 oz./ 3 ft. of height Potted Plants: 0.25 oz. (1 Tbsp)/ 3 gallon pot Flower Beds: 1 lb./100 sq. ft. of soil Turf Soil Preparation: 5-10 lbs./1000 sq. ft. (250-450 lbs./acre) Bulk Soil Blending: 2-4 lbs./cubic yard Root Dip: 1-4 oz./gallon of wat...
