What Is Plus?
Plus is an extra absorbent soil enhancer created to keep an on-going supply of moisture and minerals available to a germinating seed, seedlings, and plants from seed to sprout and beyond. Made from natural polymer, each Plus granule works like a sponge, absorbing in excess of 10 times its original weight in water, forming hydrogels that slowly release moisture back to plants as they need it.
Why It is Used
Plus 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, Plus 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.
