The gel has the ability to absorb at least 350 times its weight of pure water at 50 degrees Celsius, and its use will help farmers achieve high productivity by using less water.
Agricultural scientists claim that its use will also improve the physical properties of the soil, such as pore rate, aggregate stability, and hydraulic conductivity.
NRDC and Reliance Industries Co. , Ltd. after successfully testing its potential (RIL)
An agreement was signed to bring this new type of high water absorptiongel technology.
Scientists have successfully demonstrated the potential to solve the problem of inefficient water use in agricultural crops.
An official statement from the Earth Science Department said that in addition to improving the efficiency of the use of nutrients, the use of this product has gained a range of other benefits.
It said NRDC would sign another agreement with a company based in Chennai to transfer the same technology.
The ministry shared the details of the technology, claiming no adverse effects on crops grown in fields treated with Hydro
