From seed nurturing and crop/plant establishment to ongoing maintenance and even plant transportation, an available water supply is of huge importance in the agriculture and horticultural industries.

Due to its fibrous nature, SAF allows for the development of absorbent media (nonwovens, yarns and tapes) that offer advanced water management features, even in areas of low water availability.

Such media are designed to achieve highly controlled delivery of water and nutrients to root systems, whilst significantly reducing evaporative loss and water seepage. They can be designed for use under the ground, on the soils surface, as liners, root wraps, roof and vertical gardens and many other diverse applications where water absorption, retention and/or release is required.

Technical Absorbents has a range of products available for such applications, but is also happy to hear from anyone with an interest in its technology and can offer advice on its suitability for development projects/potential applications.
