Dosage and Applications
Open Field & Protective Cultivation
Casa De Amor Super Absorbent Polymer is mixed with soil around the root zones of common trees and plants, providing water and nutrients stably over a period of time. For common plants and trees, 1.5 - 3 kgs of Casa De Amor SAP per acre practice improves and promotes seedling growth. While depending on young to fully grown trees, Casa De Amor Super Absorbent Polymer amount differs from 20 – 100 gms mixed with the soil matrix per tree.
Terrace Farming, Home grown Gardens, Vertical Farming
Super Absorbent Polymer can be mixed with soil, for indoor and open air pots, growers, window boxes, verandah, porches, terraces, hanging, greenhouses and city scene. Using SAP proves beneficial to water usage, time, labour and lessening drought and wilting risks which come into light if the plant is not watered for long, enabling a greener and bloomer period.
Arboriculture incorporates social techniques such as selection, planting, preparing, bug and pathogen control, pruning, molding, and evacuation. It is principally centered on individual woody plants and trees kept up for landscape and amenity purposes, ordinarily in gardens, parks, etc. under the general umbrella of agriculture. Casa De Amor SAP reduces mortality rate due to transplantation shocks and enhances root development. A hole is dug about three times the volume of the root, at the plantation site, and 1 - 2 kgs of this product per m3 of soil is mixed. The plant is placed the bottom of the hole and is evenly filled with the treated soil. The top surface is covered with 5 cm of untreated soil so as to prevent UV degradation of the product.
Bare Root Dipping
To prevent desiccation of the roots of seedlings during transplanting or transportation, 1 kg of potassium polyacrylate is mixed in 150 - 200 liters of water with/ without an additional fungicide/ bactericide, and allowing it to stand for 15 minutes. It finds a great use in flower preservation during transportation; fresher flowers which in turn increase their market value.
Hydro seeding is a planting procedure that uses a mixture of seed and mulch, used as an erosion control system on construction destinations, and as another option to the conventional procedure of sowing dry seeds. Casa De Amor SAP mixed with cellulose mulch is used to stabilize newly graded soils, maintaining a minimum surface area, helping in sprouting of seedlings even in dry areas.
Casa De Amor Super Absorbent Polymer polymers can be dry mixed into fertilizer preparations. It is able to absorb large volumes of liquids that can be released over a long time reducing leaching of essential soil nutrients. Therefore, this substrate was used for the slow release of fertilizers alone or in combination with a water-holding gel, dosed at 1 to 5kg by weight.
Hydroponics/ Soil less media
Hydroponics is a technique of growing plants using only mineral supplement solutions, in water, without soil. Plants might be grown with their roots in the mineral solution only, or in a dormant/ inert medium. Casa De Amor Super Absorbent Polymer mixed with hydroponics media reduces the water stress. For fully permeable mixes like barks, wood fiber, etc., 2 - 3 kgs of Casa De Amor SAP per m3 of the substrate is mixed. For less permeable ones like peat or composts, 1 - 2 kgs of Casa De Amor SAP per m3 of the substrate is mixed.
