It probably sounds too obvious to say it – when rainfall in a region drops, crops won't grow, animals that are fed by the crops will suffer, and the economy of a region or an entire country will suffer as well. Everyone knows that plants need water to grow – as well as nutrients, sun, and air.
SOCO Polymer is a Non-toxic, Harmless, and Nonpolluting (biodegradable) Polymer that can absorb hundreds of times its weight and then turn to water gel. Water gel will not release water unless plants need water. So people also call it a "Mini-Reservoir".
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.
