Aquastore 25kg

Premier Aquastore Water Storing Granules 2kg & 25kg

Aquastore is especially useful in sandy soils, where the natural water retention at field capacity is low. Addition of small amounts of Aquastore to sandy soils significantly increases the water available at low moisture levels.

This also improves plant survival rates, permitting a more efficient use of water resources, as water otherwise percolates too quickly through sand to support healthy plant growth. A further benefit of Aquastore is that it can help decrease erosion by the formation of a light crust on the soil surface. The soil stability is further enhanced as Aquastore stimulates root growth which will consolidate against erosion as they grow.

Another important use of Aquastore is an additive to a growing medium such as peat. Incorporation of small amounts of Aquastore into growing medium can result in one or more of the following benefits:

Application rate 1 gram per litre (1kg per 1m3) compost or backfill soil.

(a) Reduced water consumption and watering frequency.

(b) Lower failure rate of plants.

(c) Reduced labour costs associated with (a).

(d) Reduced losses due to transplant shock.

Aquastore can absorb approximately 350 times its weight of water.
