for growth of trees and plants
Evonik has developed STOCKOSORB, a granulate product for soil, to promote growth of trees and plants even in extremely dry locations. This is a hydrogel which absorbs water and fertilizer at the roots and releases these for the plants again in dry conditions. The gel particles store rainwater and water from irrigation systems, thus creating a constant water store exactly where the plant requires it at the roots. The water quantity available to the plants is thus significantly increased, resulting in an optimum water supply and ensuring quicker and better root growth. This gives the plants lasting protection against drought.
