Alsta Hydrogel is a potassium polyacrylate based agriculture hydrogel polymer absorbing about 500 – 600 times water of its own weight, non-toxic and biodegradable, mandated to be beneficial for farmers in improving crop yield, especially in dry & drought conditions.
Alsta agriculture hydrogel acts as a soil conditioner, binding loose soil matter and accelerating seed germination and growth. Using Hydrogel polymer reduces drought stress on plants, mortality rate of saplings and rate of water loss by run off and evaporation.
- Super absorbent polymer absorb water to about 500 – 600 times of its own weight, forming water beads or crystals
- Acts as a mini water reservoir for plants, trapping irrigation run-off and rainfed water to release during prolonged dry conditions
- Absorbs soil nutrients which are then utilized by plants reducing overall fertilizer and pesticide usage by 30 – 35%
- Does not alter soil chemical composition. Highly effective in drought hit areas with efficient water usage
