“More Crops – Less Water”
Aquagrain is a unique, organic-based, biodegradable soil improver which can absorb up to 30 times its mass in water, enabling crops to grow in arid lands and free-draining substrates, using a fraction of the water normally required.
Our global population is forecast to exceed 9 billion by 2035, increasing the demand for food, water, land and energy.
According to the United Nations, 41.3% of the earth’s land surface are “drylands” nearly 61 billion hectares of land mass. Climate change and population growth are creating severe water stress, and currently 24% of the land is degrading. Eventually this land will become desert. In addition 12 million hectares of land a year are lost to creeping desertification around the world.
Aquagrain can make a difference by helping farmers grow more crops on arid, dry, sandy soils using less water.
