Alsta Hydrogel

ALSTA HYDROGEL acts as water reservoir at plant roots providing consistent water supply for optimum growth.
Sri Akhilaanandam Reddy, a farmer from the Amadagur village in Anantapur District of modern day Andhra Pradesh is one of the many benefitting from a new technology in agricultural irrigation practices that can change the way water is used for crops in India.
Following the drought in the Khariff season of 2015, Anantapur, Nellore and Kurnool were some of the major districts affected by severe water scarcity. As they lie in the Rayalaseema region (rainshadow zone) and receive the least amount of rainfall, water scarcity has always been an issue for the farmers of the region.
But the modern superabsorbent polymer technology manufactured by Chemtex Speciality ltd. has provided Sri Reddy with resources to cultivate his 15acre farm and produce in both quantity and variety even in drought season.
ALSTA HYDROGEL is a Potassium Polyacrylate based Super Absorbent Polymer. It is a non-toxic biodegradable water locking agent that is directly innoculated in the growing media, in his case, the farm soil.
The polymer hydrogel then absorbs water, expands upto 400 times it’s original size and retains water at root level. The moisture is slowly released as per the needs of the plant and none of it is leached into the soil.
Sri Reddy in his latest disclosure to Chemtex Speciality in December 2016 acknowledged that using ALSTA Hydrogel for over a year has increased his annual sugarcane yield from 25ton/acre to 58ton/acre & an almost double yield in Corn production. He emphasized that initially he could cultivate only 8 acres of his farm but now he uses the same amount of water to cultivate almost 12 acres successfully.
The quantity of synthetic water soluble fertilizers used in his farm has also gone down indicating a shift towards sustainable low water-low fertilizer agriculture system. In addition Chemtex was happy to witness his very own flower nursery which could not have been possible without the use of ALSTA Hydrogel.
Sri Akhilaanandam Reddy and a significant number of modern farmers & horticulturists have already shifted to super absorbent polymer agriculture and recommend the same for every farmer who wishes to maximize farm yield with minimum water and fertilizer use.
Chemtex’s ALSTA Hydrogel is the ideal water conservation technology to curb the predominant problem of water scarcity in agriculture while limiting environmental losses like ground water contamination and soil degradation by moisture loss.
You are welcome for an in-depth experience at hydrogelagriculture.com

Hydrogel Polymer marketed by Chemtex Speciality Limited under the name Alsta Hydrogel is a water retaining agent with the capacity of holding up to 400 – 600 times water than its own weight. Hydrogel agriculture or the use of super absorbent polymer for agriculture refers to hydrogel polymer application in soils for the purpose of stably providing water to the plants irrespective of drought and dry seasons. The plants can absorb water from this nontoxic water absorbent polymer throughout. Hydrogel in Agriculture is a potassium based super absorbent polymer acting in drought prone areas and rain-fed agriculture as a water retaining agent.

Alsta Hydrogel - The best hydrogel polymer available in India
ALSTA HYDROGEL is a potassium polyacrylate based super absorbent polymer manufactured by Chemtex Speciality Ltd. for agricultural sector. The granular polymer has a capacity to absorb water 300-500 times its own weight and release it gradually directly to the plant roots over a period. It is effective at reducing irrigation frequency, maintaining soil texture and permeability while ensuring proper and healthy growth of the plants themselves. It can be used
Super Absorbent Polymer for Agriculture Farming Horticulture - Alsta Hydrogel
Super Absorbent Polymers, also known as SAP, hydrogel, absorbent polymers, absorbent gels, super soakers, super slurpers, water gel is a new type of macro molecular synthetic water absorbing polymer material that has a water uptake potential as high as 100,000% of its own weight in a short period of time by osmosis and form granules in soil to enhance soil properties. SAPs are generally white sugar-like hygroscopic materials that swell
