So Many BENEFITS

  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals significantly reduce water usage by extending the time between irrigations or by extending the benefits of rainfall.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals dramatically increase crop yields and provide for faster plant establishment.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals are highly resistant to electrolytes yielding numerous hydration cycles.
  • A single installation of water absorbent polymer TeraGel® (T-200) remains actively effective for up to five years.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) polymer crystals retain fertilizers and other water soluble additives.
  • TeraGel® (T-200)  water retaining polymers remain effective in the presence of fertilizers, salts and other chemicals that adversely effect the absorption rates of all other soil polymers.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals promote root growth resulting in larger, healthier plants and increases crop yields due to greater root mass created by added moisture availability and presence of slow release fertilizer.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) polymer crystals decompact soils which allows roots access to lower soil depths. This greatly improves availability of the applied irrigation, provides infiltration throughout the root zone and allows drainage due to the aeration provided by the shrink-swell cycles.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water absorbing crystals provides for uniform moisture conditions in soil, irrigation mats, geo-textiles and other agricultural media.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals will not float through the soil matrix to the surface or create water rivlets when subjected to heavy rains or watering schedules. 
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water absorbing crystals are completely non toxic, environmentally safe.

TeraGel® (T-200)  water crystals absorb and hold hundreds of times their weight in water and then upon demand release the moisture to the plant. Of all plant polymers now available,


  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals have the greatest absorption under soil pressure and perform more effectively in the presence of fertilizers and other water soluble soil additives.
  • These crystals are completely non-toxic and due to their high resistance to electrolytes remain actively effective for three to five years with a single installation
  • Affordable costs together with reduced irrigation requirements, fertilizer savings and significant increases in crop yields, result in the most cost effective soil polymer product on the market.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) is the ideal solution as a soil polymer for landscaping as well as a soil polymer for horticulture and as a soil polymer for golf courses in providing moisture to plants or turf. 




What is TeraGel® (T-200) ?  


  • Engineered specifically for moisture retention with the ability to release moisture to the plant upon demand. 
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water absorbing polymer crystal are non-toxic and has about five years of performance duration of a single installation, depending upon conditions of soil and irrigation water among other variables.
  • TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals are potassium based, organic cross-linked co-polymers with water binding groups.
  • In dry form they are white, crystalline granules with a neutral pH and when hydrated become a gel which retains fluids even under soil pressure and in the presence of fertilizers and other soil additives. 
  •  TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals are characterized by high volume absorption and fluid retention and are available in a variety of crystal sizes for various soil requirements. 
  •  TeraGel® (T-200) water crystals extend the time between irrigations thus providing for more efficient use of available water contributing to water conservation. 


        How TeraGel® (T-200) works 

  • When water or fluids come into contact with TeraGel® (T-200)  water crystals, an electrical force pushes the inward structure of the particle away from the center via electrical repulsion. 
  •  Small voids are created inside the particle drawing the water inward which results in rapid swelling of the crystal. 
  • When the water evaporates or is taken up by the plant the particle shrinks and is ready for the process to repeat. 
  • These reservoirs of water crystals (hydrogels) are evenly dispersed throughout the plant’s root zone. 
  • When the soil dries out and reaches 50% of field capacity the crystals are engineered to release their moisture to compensate for the outside soil pressure on the gel wall. 
  •  This promotes the roots to grow to the new found moisture source provided by the presence of the hydrogels, or commonly known as water absorbing polymers or water crystals.
  •  In many cases the roots grow right through the hydrated water crystals, extracting the moisture before moving on to the next closest one.
  • This process promotes increased root mass resulting in larger plants and increased crop yield.
  •  It has universal use as a soil polymer for landscaping, as a soil polymer for nurseries, as a soil polymer for horticultural use as well as a soil polymer for agriculture.
