Absorbent Polymer (SAP) Usage in Agriculture, Horticulture &
Super Absorbent Polymer
(SAP) is a new type macro molecular synthetic material, which can
absorb water of hundreds times of its weight in a short time and
form granule formations in soil to enhance dank and ventilating
ability. It is one kind of functionality macro molecule polymer
which is non-toxic, non-irritating and non-corrosive. It can not
conflagrate and blast.
Super Absorbent Polymer is natural, biodegradable starch-based
formulation. It demonstrates greater water absorption potential and
the ability to freely release water under suction pressure by plant
The product can improve soil quality, preserve water and resist
drought, producing a better environment for seeds to sprout and
develop. It is harmless and non-polluting with super water absorbing
ability and water preserving ability while the absorbed water cannot
be squeezed out in simply physical ways and it can release and
absorb water repeatedly.
Used in agriculture and forestry, it can form a micro reservoir at
plants root. It can absorb natural water which quantity can reach
around 250-400 times by its self-weight. It also has better
SAP can release and absorb water repeatedly, the water which it
absorbs can be absorbed slowly by the seed and plant-root, so this
will increase soil moisture effectively and decrease the times of
Using this product can save water, labour, and increase the
livability for the transplant.
Applying SAP in the drought season, dry land, mountainous area &
sloping field, mine terra and desert, can improve virescence
effectively, and accelerate to restore the zoology environment.
SAP can be applied together with fertilizer, pesticide,
micro-element, radication powder, etc. It can make them release
slowly and increase the effects of the fertilization and pesticide,
decrease loss of soil nutrients and protect underground water
SAP has flocculation function to make fine dust of the soil to
become loosed big grains; this can prevent soil to be harden. During
repeatedly absorb-release water, it can make soil loosen thus to
promote soil edaphon development and increase crop quantity.
It is widely used in agriculture and forestry industry, municipal
gardening, drought resisting and water preserving, and sand
resisting and controlling aspects, and is playing an important role.
SAP will significantly reduce water depletion while dramatically
improving plant survival and growth. It will also reduce water
runoff and soil erosion, thus improving the quality of our lakes,
streams and rivers. Cost-efficient water management is of particular
importance for the agricultural and horticultural industry, e.g. for
tree nurseries growing high-value trees and shrubs. With severe
droughts occurring on a more frequent basis due to global warming,
SAP can help plants survive by reducing irrigation requirements up
