SUPER WATER GEL is commonly used in hydro seeding to stabilize newly graded soils.
Mixed with or without cellulose mulch, it makes it possible to maintain a minimum of surface water, which permits rapid sprouting of seedlings even in dry areas.
The vegetation cover develops uniformly and rapidly over the whole treated surface. There are no dry spots without grass.
The other advantage of SUPER WATER GEL is that it prevents cellulose mulch from becoming hardpan during a dry spell. The mulch remains aerated and allows the seeds to sprout quickly. SUPER WATER GEL also makes it possible to reduce the amount of mulch.
SUPER WATER GEL must be added last to the hydro seeder tank, after the other components: seeds, fertilizers, mulch, etc.
Stir at least 15 minutes before spreading.
The following components will normally be required to treat one hectare:
Amounts are to be adjusted based on soil type, slope of the terrain, plant needs, weather conditions, etc
BARE ROOT DIPPING
SUPER WATER GEL can be used for root dipping in order to prevent the desiccation of the roots of seedlings during transplanting or transport over a long distance.
The dressing is prepared as follows:
Mix 1kg of SUPER WATER GEL in 150-200 liters of water. Amounts vary depending on the salinity of the water.
Slowly pour in the product while stirring the water to obtain a dressing without dumping of particles.
Let the dressing stand for 15 minutes, the time needed for SUPER WATER GEL to reach its maximum absorption. It is important to obtain a dressing that will adhere completely to the roots. The longer the maturation time, the thicker the dressing will be and the better it will adhere to the roots.
A water-soluble nematocide and/or fungicide may also be added to the preparation to protect plants against nematode and fungal attacks.

SUPER WATER GEL BEST FOR BARE ROOT DIPPING
SUPER WATER GEL Water retainers for Soils and Substrates
Mixed into a substrate, SUPER WATER GEL provides a reduction in water stress. It ensures that cuttings and transplants take root better and that seedlings grow faster. Irrigation frequencies are spread out. It is an ideal solution in substrates for containers, hanging plants, and houseplants.
Watering frequencies are commonly reduced by 30% to 50, which likewise reduces labor costs and the amount of water used.
Evenly mix SUPER WATER GEL into the substrate. The amount must be adapted to each type of substrate based on water requirements and characteristics pf the plants and cultivation and weather conditions. As a general rule, the more permeable the substrate, the greater the need for WATER GEL.
In permeable substrates made of bark, wood fiber or coconut-residue, tje recommended amount ranges from 1 to kg/m3
Recommended SUPER WATER GEL product:
SUPER WATER GEL 3005KM
Dosage: 1 to 3 kg/m3
MIXING WITH FERTILIZERS
To reduce leaching of nutrients in the soil, SUPER WATER GEL may be mixed dary into fertilizer preparations. The behavior of plants fertilized with this mixture makes it possible to maintain or even increase yield while at the same time protecting the environment from leaching. Manufactures* test results also show better root development of the plants.
Savings on the order of 15% to 30% are observed in the amount of fertilizers are manufactured
Recommended SUPER WATER GEL product:.
SUPER WATER GEL 3005 KM
Dosage: 1% to 5% by weight
SUPER WATER GEL products can also be used as an additive in drying feed litters used in breeding farms to replace tahe old generation of phosphate based-litters.
This new generation of animal drying litter has many benefits such as being a better comfort for the animals due to a dryer bedding environment. It also leads to a reduction of odors.
An Improvement of the fertilizing value of manure due to a better fixation of ammonia.
A better respect of the environment as it is a phosphate-free product.
SUPER WATER GEL IS PHOSPHATE FREE
SUPER WATER GEL is commonly used for coloring the water in glass containers. SUPER WATER GEL in granules is allowed to expand in colored solutions. The hydrogel is placed in glass containers in which cut flowers may be placed.
SUPER WATER GEL in the form of hydrogel may be placed in sealed plastic pouches. Once frozen, the pouches are often used in the transport of heat-sensitive plant products such as cut flowers. The hydrogel has excellent resistance to heat shock and does not leak after thawing.
