process eventually leads to soil degradation and decreased crop production. The International Water Management Institute had found bentonite clay as a solution to soil degradation. One major side effect of erosion and soil degradation is the inability for the land to retain water. They found that when bentonite clay is mixed with farming soil, it increases water-retention and thus the ability for crops to access water. Farmers benefit from its low cost and wide availability.
Application of Bentonite clay technology made a big contribution to rejuvenating the degraded soils and it has improved yields and farmers incomes. It is used as an ion exchange for improvement and conditioning of the soil. When thermally treated, it can be used as a porous ceramic carrier for various herbicides and pesticides. We offer Bentonite powder as well as granular Bentonite for agricultural uses.
The high CEC (Cation-Exchange-Capacity) makes Bentonite a highly effective additive for improvement and conditioning of the soil.
