Hydrogel for Improving Water Use Efficiency of Agricultural Crops

Published on by in Academic

We are experiencing the reduction in rainfall since last three years and also the soil moisture is reducung as a effect of less rainfall.

We want to adopt some new technology for improving the water efficiency. We would conduct a sample field project to see how different technology can help us.

Can we also use Hydrogel for improving water use efficiency for rice crop? Would it be a good option?

We use bed sowing method for growing the rice crops. Hydrogel technique is new to us, can you help us with literature, case studies, your experiences please?
