Dry regions can stabilize or increase crop yields
SNF provides a solution to a major challenge, Feeding 9 billion people by 2050
SNF has created polyacrylamides that optimize water management and reduce soil erosion. They are already used in the ornamental sector, in forestry, landscaping and golf courses and are now developed in agriculture.
Increase the water and nutrient retention capacity of soil. Polyacrylamide superabsorbents can absorb up to 400 times their weight in water. They are used for many applications such as reforestation, horticulture, landscaping and ornamentals. These products, increase the water holding capacity of soils for several years, while reducing irrigation time, water usage, and water and nutrients losses linked to leaching.
Reduce erosion and crusting. Prevent the runoff of certain mineral fertilisers and of pesticide residues. FLOBOND soluble polyacrylamide polymers are used to flocculate the irrigated soil thus improving water penetration and soil aeration and diminuishing soil erosion.
