WHAT IS IT
Zeoplant is a very effective water retaining soil additive, consisting of fully natural mineral material. In times of increasing water scarcity all around the globe, water has to be used wisely and not wasted through uncontrolled landscaping or agriculture. Zeoplant improves the soil structure and increases the water holding capacity of the soils to the extent that infiltration speed of irrigation water will be reduced by up to 85%. Plant roots have more time to absorb the water and loss of water through percolation is reduced drastically.
Zeoplant reduces the necessary quantity of irrigation water by 50%.
WHERE CAN IT BE USED
As soil amendment/additive in landscaping and agriculture, sports turfs, Golf Courses etc. to increase the water holding capacity of soils.
WHY IS IT GREEN
