Traditionally, super-absorbent polymers have been used most as a bare root treatment, with the majority of focus being in forestry and landscaping businesses. Of course, as a bare root treatment, super absorbent polymers are an ideal defense against desiccation, as well as being a proactive measure to ensure the health of tree and plant roots.
Broadcast Horta-Sorb® MD at the rate of 1 lb. per 100 sq. ft. and work into the earth 4-6 inches deep. Plant as usual.
Soil amendment: Broadcast Horta-Sorb® MD at the rate of 3 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. With sprigging and seeding, work into the first 1″ of soil with a till or by chain drag, dressing at this rate for every 2 inches of soil depth, i.e., you could apply 3X the normal rate with 9 lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft., incorporated in six inches. With sod, simply lay sod on top of treated area, without the need for tilling, at the 3 lb. per 1,000 sq. ft. rate.
Spraying Roots: Remove screens in equipment. Prepare mixture the same as Dipping Roots.
