SOYL-GELEndüstriyel Tasarım Teknolojileri
SOYL-GEL is a multifunctional hydrogel applied under the soil, near plant roots, to retain and release water, and to continually supply essential soil nutrients and pesticides in adequate amounts. Owed to its nanocomposite structure, when swollen, SOYL-GEL is mechanically more robust than regular hydrogels and can retain its shape better under the soil. Nano additives substantially extend water release durations, up to ten times longer compared to commercial hydrogels. Moreover, nano additives in SOYL-GEL improve reswelling ability.
