General application rates of Water Crystals for farming.


This table shows recommended application rates of polymer crystals for crops grown in typical soils. Amounts should be increased for dry climates and porous soils.

These rates are in pounds per acre by type of crop for the first year. You will be able to decrease the application rate by as much as 85% for each subsequent annual treatment to maintain the same water-saving benefits achieved in your first year. Loss is due from working the soil and natural aspiration or hydrated crystals expose to sunlight.
