  • 1. Water Retainer for Soil
  • 2. Composition Superabsorbent anionic polyacrylamide polymerCross-linked co-polymer of acrylamide & potassium acrylate
  • 3. Action PolySorb™ consists of set of chains parallel to each other, linked to each other forming a network When water comes in contact, it is drawn into the molecule by osmosis As soil dries out, PolySorb™ releases upto 95% of absorbed water into the

  • 11. PerformanceFromNursery 1 week after transplantation to field
  • 12. Application Nurseries Planting Recommended Dose Recommended Dose 1 to 3 kg of dry PolySorb™ / m3 ≈ 3g dry PolySorb™ / tree Not more than 3kg / m3 ≈ 2250 trees planted / hectare Preferably mix hydrated with ≈ 6.8 kg / ha of dry PolySorb™ the growing media Advantages Advantages1. Savings of water through limited percolation 1. Reduced mortality and spills and less evaporation 2. Application of hydrated PolySorb™2. Soils remains irrigated for a longer time. waters the tree at planting3. Interval between 2 irrigations is spread out 3. Possibility to plant during the dry season 4. Cost savings: saplings, labor, etc
  • 13. AdvantagesIncreases water holding capacity of soils & at the same time reduces water evaporation from soil Increases soil aeration Reduces irrigation frequency by 30-50% Reduces water & nutrient losses due to leaching by 20-30% Enhances plant growth by making water & nutrients available in the root zone consistently for optimum absorption
  • 14. Advantages Delays ReducesWilting Point Plant Mortality rate
  • 15. Toxicity• PolySorb™ demonstrates no systemic toxicity (oral LD50/rats > 5000mg/kg)• PolySorb™ is sensitive to uv rays and undergoes degradation to oligomers and subsequently undergoes microbial degradation by aerobic and anaerobic process• PolySorb™ degrades naturally in soil into CO2, H2O & Nitrogen compounds which are essential plant nutrients
