Super Absorbent Polymer Advantages

TryEcoTM products with Drought Defender Technology are 3rd generation starch-based superabsorbent polymers. TryEco’s patented technology offers the agriculture industry an innovative combination of absorbency and biodegradability. TryEco’s granular and seed coating products allow for a variety of applications, including agricultural crops, horticulture, turf, trees and nurseries. 


Reduce Watering

TryEco products act like a sponge absorbing water on contact, creating “miniature water reservoirs” in the soil. Because water is being held in a localized zone, the plant can take advantage of an “on demand” water supply. Irrigation efficiency is increased, creating longer intervals between irrigation cycles. With “On Demand” water the plant can obtain a greater yield with less water used and maintenance.


Increases Yield

Roots will be exposed to far less stress due to the proximity of the “on demand” water supply held in a localized zone. This will allow the plant to lessen stress and conserve energy for the production of “fruit” by reducing their need to search for water. This allows you to grow more food, more efficiently on the same amount of land.



Increase Fertilizer Efficiency

Super Absorbent Polymer’s controlled release system for water and fertilizer works by favoring the uptake of some nutrient elements, holding them in a localized zone, and delaying their dissolution. Consequently, the plant can still access some fertilizers, resulting in improved growth, performance rates and decreased fertilizer leaching.



Improved Survival Rate

Through more consistent access to water during seeding and initial growth, plant survival rates and stand establishment are increased. When transplanting, Super Absorbent Polymers can also help to reduce plant mortality.



Promotes Faster Growth

Super Absorbent Polymers can shorten a growth cycle by holding moisture close, softening the seed tissue promoting rapid germination and accelerated sprouting.



Increased Microbial Activity

Increased biodegradable composition provides food for the plant and soil microorganisms as it degrades, which in turn grows healthier plants. The natural cornstarch base allows SAPs to decompose over time without leaving adverse residue in the soil.



Reduces Erosion

SAP’s help seedlings to grow where soil crusting and other compaction tendencies have occurred by expanding in real time when they come into contact with moisture. This helps to stop water run off, which reduces erosion while also aiding in soil aeration.



Versatile Usage

SAP’s in the form of seed coating, root dip and granular products offer water management solutions for applications with agricultural crops, horticulture, turf, trees and nurseries.
