POTASSIUM SUPER ABSORBENT POLYMERS IN FARMING
LEARN HOW FARMING CAN BE DONE WITH 50% LESS WATER AND NUTRIENTS
FARMING IS POISED FOR A REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE. SAP IS THE TECHNOLOGY OF THE FUTURE - AVAILABLE TO YOU TODAY.
MANY DISTRICTS IN INDIA GET POOR RAIN FALL EVERY YEAR. FARMING SUFFERS DUE TO LOW, IRREGULAR AND UNRELIABLE RAINS. BUT NOW REVOLUTIONARY SUPER ABSORBENT HAS COME TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM EFFECTIVELY AND ONCE FOR ALL
"POTASSIUM SAP IS MINI WATER RESERVOIR FOR PLANTS"
Potassium Super Absorbent Polymer called KSAP absorbs and retains water few hundreds of times its own weight. SAP prevents evaporation losses and percolation losses of this water.
Evaporation losses are 10-15% of the water. Remaining water will start percolating down into earth. This process is continuous and more the water, faster will be the percolation rate.
Plant roots extend only up to 30-50 cms and fruit tree roots can go up to 1.5-2.5 meters. Therefore, they can absorb water within the reach of their roots only. In soil, water percolates down beyond their reach within 3 days for plants and 6-7 days for fruit trees. That means hardly 20%-25% can only be utilized by them before the water is lost due to percolation beyond the reach of their roots.
This rate of percolation depends on soil type. But SAP will be very useful in case of any soil. It holds water in the form of gel and all of it will be within the reach of roots so that 100% of water is made available to plants.
This way 60% or more water is saved. This means if SAP is used, one watering will be enough where three are needed without SAP
Another advantage is SAP can hold water along with the fertilizer dissolved in it so that all the fertilizer is available to the plants. This saves 50% fertilizer too.
#Absorption of water #Retention of excess water #Effectively blocking the movement of water #Non Toxic #Non-pollutant #Harmless in every aspect |
#Soil water retention agent #For seed-coating operations #For soil-less cultivation nbsp; #For setting up artificial turf
SAP is available in the form of white Granules of various mesh sizes. 5-20 mesh size granules suitable for trees, 20-80 mesh size granules suitable for crops and 30-100 mesh size granules are suitable for grass.
Because of these advantages KSAP finds wide usage in the agriculture, horticulture, social forestry and gardening.
