Water Holding

Each Zeba granule is am anionic structure capable of holding in excess of 400 times its own weight in water. As seen in this time-lapse film, 0.75 grams of Zeba absorbs 400 mL of water. The Zeba granules slowly release just the right amount of encapsulated moisture in response to plant root suction. The granules easily rehydrate and store more water as moisture enters the soil. This process is repeated hundreds of times over a growing season.

Zeba maximizes plant growth by not only storing water, but also slowing water movement through the soil, and adding anionic attraction to the area around the roots. This helps reduce the movement of many crop inputs through the system and creates a healthy microenvironment in the plant root zone. The result is faster germination, quicker emergence, consistent growth and higher, better quality plants and yields.
