Water and nutrients are essential for plant growth and development. Drought stress is one of the major
limiting factors that affect crop and fruit growth and productivity.
Additionally, under heavy rainfall conditions, low water infiltration causes high surface runoff and amplified soil erosion. The water and nutrient holding capacity of sandy and permeable soils, in particular, are extremely limited. These soil types are characterized by excessive drainage of rain and irrigation water, as well as plant nutrients leaching below the root zone. This leads to inefficient water and fertilizer use by crops. These conditions are intensified in shallow-rooted crops or when irrigation water or irrigation systems are missing.
Newsorb® GT1 is a soil conditioner specially designed and developed for water and nutrient retention and release in substrates and soils. Upon contact with water, Newsorb® GT1 swells quickly, creating a hydrogel by absorbing and retaining large quantities of plant available water. Fertilizer leaching can thus be reduced. During the soil drying process, both water and water-soluble nutrients are released to the plant in a uniform manner.
More Details & Benefits
Newsorb® GT1 is a soil water retention agent (super absorbent resin)excellent in water retention and does not inhibit plant growth. It is a biodegradable absorbent Polymers that absorbs and retains large amount of water by forming a gel then gradually release water to supply moisture.
Conventional soil water retention agent, when blended in soil, inhibits root growth.
· Absorbs and holds a lot of water, so it can greatly improve the water retention of soil.
· Once absorbed water gradually releases as the soil dries, it is effectively used for plants.
· Because it absorbs certain kinds of fertilizer components and gradually releases it, the outflow of fertilizer components due to precipitation It helps to improve plant utilization of fertilizer and increase growth of plants.
· Creates gaps in the soil as water is absorbed and released, and has the function to improve the supply of air to the roots.
Newsorb® GT1 increases the plant available water holding capacity, aeration balance and structure of soils, substrates and potting mixes. Consequently, water and nutrients are available to the plant for a longer period of time, resulting in stronger and healthier plant growth even under hot and dry climatic conditions.
As Newsorb® GT1 stores water in the root zone, water deep percolation as well as fertilizer leaching can be prevented. This allows for a reduction in irrigation frequency and thus irrigation costs. Furthermore, Newsorb® GT1 increases soil porosity and enhances the water infiltration rate of soil to an extent that surface water run-off and soil erosion can be significantly reduced.
Newsorb® GT1 is a technology for lasting improvement in the efficiency of water and soil management in agriculture and horticulture.
Ingredients & How It Works
Newsorb® GT1 is a Acrylic acid polymer partial cross-linked product. It does not contain any acrylamide. These soil conditioners are available as white, dry and solid granulate with different particle sizes and with excellent water absorption power. Different particle sizes are used for application to different soil textures.
How GT-1 works
After swelling to a hydrogel GT1 acts as a reservoir of water that is available to plants on demand.
The higher water availability helps to avoid water stress during longer periods of drought. During the water release phase of the hydrogel, free pore volume will be created within the soil, offering additional space for root growth and air and water infiltration and storage. GT1 also strongly resists soil pressure at high
soil depth without losing its swelling capacity.
