This innovation comes in our mind after reviewing baby products like diaper in market. Hydrogel are used in diaper like baby care product. Hydrogel in diaper have tendency to absorb 400 times then its actual weight. At one time, we have one idea, why these technologies are not used in agriculture? Then We have started to work on hydrogel and have made successful hydrogelling system that can be used in agriculture. Effective use of hydrogel can reduce water requirement and fertilizer requirements in to the soil.
