Zeba is a patented, starch-based, superabsorbent soil enhancement designed to keep a constant supply of moisture available to germinating seed, seedlings, and plants throughout the growing season. Made from natural cornstarch, each Zeba granule works like a sponge, absorbing in excess of 400 times its original weight in water, forming hydrogels that slowly release moisture back to plants as they need it. Zeba also binds and releases water-soluble nutrients, keeping more fertilizer in the root zone where it can be used by plants, thus creating a healthy microenvironment. Over time, Zeba is broken down and consumed by naturally-occurring microorganisms in the soil, leaving no residue behind.
With a steady supply of water and nutrients, plants grow healthier, crops are more uniform, and yields are increased.
