What is the superabsorbent polymer (SAP)?
It is a functional polymer with good water absorption and water holding capacity.
We can use it to absorb, retaining, or block liquid–it can absorb water up to several hundred times of its own weight and turn into the natural gel from within seconds.
Another side, it is Non-toxic, Harmless, and Nonpolluting!
What can super absorbent polymer do for agriculture?
Our product can be widely used in agriculture, forestry, and gardening, such as soil water retention agents, seed coating, soil-less cultivation, artificial turf, etc.
-Improve seed germination and emergence to give plants an early, healthy start.
-Save the irrigation, increase crops and fruit yield.
-It contains Potassium, Phosphorus Nitrogen and releases the fertilizer efficiency slowly.
How does it work?
It consists of a set of polymeric chains that are parallel to each other and regularly linked to each other by cross-linking agents, thus forming a network.
When water comes into contact with one of these chains, it is drawn into the molecule by osmosis. Water rapidly migrates into the interior of the polymer network where it is stored. As the soil dries out, the polymer releases up to 95% of the absorbed water into the soil.

Common plants and crops
15 to 30 kg per acre dosage, along with seeds hole application or ditch application to the soil around the seed, the seed germination rate can effectively improve and promote seedling growth. Gets success planting corn in the U.S, pasture in the arid area of Inner Mongolia, potatoes are grown in Cape Verde Africa, and potato yield increase more than 2 times.
Seed coating use potassium polyacrylate should be fine particle size of 0.3 mm or less, after SAP coating the seed emergence quickly, strong and good disease resistance, this is the easily available way use SAP to plants in the drought area, which also with a small quantity, low cost and good performance.
Gardening, Horticulture, and landscape
Potassium polyacrylate is ideal for mixing soil matrix, for indoor and outdoor pots, planters, window boxes, balconies, terraces, roofs, hanging, gardens, and city landscape. Planting shrub, flower, grass, vegetables are available. Using SAP can bring water-saving, labor-saving, time-saving benefits and reduce the drought or wilting risk caused by a long time no watering the plants, longer the green time and the blossom period.
Lawn and Golf course
Application in golf and lawn can save about 50%-70% water, Reduce the cost of maintenance, Save about 30%-50% fertilizer. The lawn grows faster, healthier, and the green lasts longer, with less pollution caused by the loss of fertilizer.
SAP has an important role like fertilizers, pesticides, it is because of the development of planting saplings and fruit, a continuous supply of water is very important. Using 10-20g SAP can double the survival rate of young trees when planting tree seedlings (bare root).
For adult deciduous fruit trees, put SAP with organic fertilizer, taken with a ring groove or furrow in the root area. The dosage is upon the soil condition, tree size and the ditching situation should generally be 0.3% of the backfill soil and fertilizer. Liaoning planting apple in Liaoning and Shandong, lychee, and pineapple in Guangxi, bananas, and peaches in Yunnan, get a very good result after using SAP.
