The only superabsorbent made specifically for agriculture

AquaVantage® works like millions of tiny water reservoirs in the soil, holding moisture that plant roots can readily extract.

 

Then, AquaVantage® granules recharge when new moisture is added to the soil. This cycle repeats for up to a year.

 

Benefits include: 

- More efficient use of irrigation

- Added efficacy of chemicals

- More days before wilt

- Proven crop quality increases

- Proven crop quantity increases
