SUPER WATER GEL has also shown its effectiveness in large-scale farming, especially at the time of germination and development of the root network due to good aeration of the soil. The storage of rainwater or irrigation water by SUPER WATER GEL delays the wilting point and thus makes it possible for certain plants to begin to be well established while waiting for the water regime to become adequate. SUPER WATER GEL ensures a good population and an even growth of plants even in very permeable soils
For example, in the farming of rain-fed sugar cane, significant increases in yield of approx. 25% are observed.
When replanting a field, put SUPER WATER GEL in the furrows where the cane shoots are placed. SUPER WATER GEL may be applied at the same time as a fertilizer.
Cover the shoots with soil by earthing up

WATER GEL INFORMATION ON USE
Choice of particle size:
This is an important factor to consider based on the soil type.
In general, the finer the particle size of the polymer, the greater its capacity and speed of absorption and vice-versa.
When applying SUPER WATER GEL to very porous soils (e.g.:sand, compost) use a small particle size for more rapid water absorption.
In heavy soils (for example, clay), granules are preferable. They improve the porosity of the soil due to their great expansion capacity.
In the preparation of dressings, use a very fine product to achieve adequate protection of the root hairs.
Very fine products:
Because of their volatility, wearing a dust mast is recommended.
If the product is hydrated before use, slowly pour the product into the water. Stirring lightly will prevent the fine particles from clumping.
The higher the water temperature, the faster the absorption of water by SUPER WATER GEL.
All the products in the SUPER WATER GE Line have a high absorption capacity. If the product is spilled, be sure not to rinse it with water. The ground would become extremely slippery. Shovel or vacuum it up.
To clean equipment, blow off the powder traces with compressed air.
Avoid contact with eyes and skin (use of gloves and goggles is recommended.)
The polymer is sensitive to the action of ultraviolet rays that, by breaking bonds, degrade the polyner into oligomers (molecules of much smaller size). It thus becomes much more sensitive to the aerobic and anaerobic processes of microbiological degradation.
SUPER WATER GEL therefore degrades naturally into soils (up to 10% - 15% per year) in CO2, H2O and nitrogen compounds.
The polymer is much too voluminous to be absorbed int the tissues and cells of plants. Its potential to bioaccumulate lis there fore nil. (SCPA study no 97 -78).
The period of effectiveness of SUPER WATER GEL in the field ranges fron one to five years depending on particle size and agro-climatic conditions.
SUPER WATER GEL products demonstrate no systemic toxicity (oral LD50/rats 5000mg/kg).
SUPER WATER GEL is approved by the French Ministry of Agriculture (APV No 8410030). Our US distributors’ trade names are also approved by the Departament of Agriculture (USDA).
