is also decisive for the quality of plant growth. The water and nutrient storage in particular of sandy and permeable soils is however extremely limited. Rain and spraying water seep and evaporate to a large extent not used by the plants. Nutrients are washed from the root range. The water supply of the plants is subject to strong fluctuations. In addition precipitation deficits and dry periods make the water content in the soil sink rapidly under the minimum needed for growth. In order to avoid drying damage and plant losses, an intensive irrigation is necessary. But irrigation is cost-intensive: Natural water resources are scarce water becomes even more expensive - watering is a lot of work. Reduce irrigation expenditure with AQUA SORB P AQUA SORB P is a water saver and a nutrient saver. Worked into natural soils, compost ground or culture substrates AQUA SORB P ensures optimal plant growth with minimum water and nutrient losses. Water and water-soluble nutrients are plant-availably stored within the root range. The result is convincing:
without with Aqua Aqua Sorb P Sorb P
AQUA SORB P increases durably the usable water capacity of soils and substrates reduces the irrigation frequency by at least 50 % secures an even water supply for the plants provides for faster and better root creation reduces the nutrient removal in the groundwater reduces the costs of irrigation and fertilization
Product specific characteristics secure greatest possible use AQUA SORB P products are acryl amide/acrylic acid copolymers on potassium salt basis, which are characterized as soil auxiliary materials by their enormous water reservoir ability. AQUA SORB P is suitable in particular to substantially improve the growth conditions for plants during dry periods. AQUA SORB P products are pH neutral and innocuous for plants, soil organisms and groundwater. Highest storage capacity AQUA SORB P soil auxiliary materials are mixed with the planting substrate. When in contact with water the individual granulates soak up the water and form gel particles and store the water and the plant nutrients, which are dissolved in it. Even with working in depths of 50 cm AQUA SORB P reaches its maximum source ability against the existing ground pressure. Maximum water delivery to the plant roots The stored water as well as the solved nutrients are at disposal to the plant. The roots extract from the gel particles by their suction forces the amount of water, which they need for the covering of their water requirement. AQUA SORB P granulates create hence a constant store of water exactly where the plant needs it within the root range. The plant is lastingly protected against drying stress. Long-term effect due to the high stability of the gel particles AQUA SORB P is functional in the soil over several years. The water absorption ability and the immediate rewettability remain the same also after repeated dry periods. The AQUA SORB P long-term effect is ensured by high mechanical and biological stability of the gel particles. 1g Aqua Sorb P stores 300 ml water in plant-available form Use of AQUA SORB P soil auxiliary materials - Mix AQUA SORB P granulates thoroughly with the substrate mix - Entry of AQUA SORB P into the root range - Surfaces treated with AQUA SORB P should be watered up to saturation after planting
Water delivery of the AQUA SORB P gel particles with different dynamic surface tensions
The water supply of the plant is determined by the intensity of the water connection (dynamic surface tension) in the soil. Under moderate climate conditions water, which is bound in the soil with a dynamic surface tension < pF 4.2, is available for the plants. Plants adapted to arid and/or semiarid climates can still use water with dynamic surface tensions to pF 4,4.
