Super Absorbent Polymer
Stockosorb® is a highly cross-linked and water insoluble superabsorbent polymer (sap) specially designed for water absorption and water retention in soils located in regions subject to drought. Upon contact with water, these synthetic crystals swell quickly, creating a sap-hydrogel by absorbing and retaining a big volume of water and soluble plant nutrients dissolved in it, which will be released to the plant during the soil drying process.
A wide range of trials has been undertaken word-wide in order to prove and demonstrate the benefits of stockosorbÂ® application for plant germination and growth, crop yield and quality, transplanted seedling survival and development as well as for water and fertilizer use efficiency in food, fruit and wood production. Superabsorbent polymers are more and more also used in many other technical field like e. g. The cable industry, food industry and the green industry including agriculture, horticulture, landscaping and forestry activities.
