Best results are noted when Jal Nidhi Pusa Hydrogel is applied during sowing time. It helps in better germination and root establishment.
General Recommendation: 1.5 kg per Acre
Special Recommendation: For sandy soil, use up to 2.5kg per acre. Apply the Pusa Hydrogel at a depth of 6 to 8 inches of soil. For clay soil, apply at a depth of 4 inches from the soil surface, preferably at the root zone.
For Field Crops:
Prepare the field for sowing.
Add 1.5 kg of the Hydrogel to 10kg of fine dry soil and mix properly.
The 11.5 kg mixture (Hydrogel +Soil) should be applied along with seeds /fertilizer.
For best results, the Pusa Hydrogel should be applied close to seeds.
