What does it do?
Aquagrain incorporates organic waste from the food industry into a biodegradable, carbon chain polymer which absorbs up to 30 times its mass in liquid, providing your crops with food and drink for when irrigated - in a sustainable way.
Its organic content, with enhanced micronutrients, not only supplies your crops with valuable nutrients, cutting the requirement for inorganic fertilisers, it also significantly stimulates microbial activity in the soil and is ideal for regenerative farming practices.
Aquagrain biodegrades over 12 months to leave just water, CO₂ and organic matter in your soil.
