Hydrosource CLP

Hydrosource CLP looks like rock salt when dry and captures up to 400 times its weight in rainwater. Used in agriculture, CLP makes water and nutrients available to plants at all times, producing outstanding crop yields. CLP-raised plants mature faster, are more disease resistant, and can be reliably grown in areas of the world that are too low in annual rainfall to support cost-effective traditional farming. The use of CLP in complete systems including special UV-stabilized landscape fabric and drip irrigation are the main focus of our current research efforts.

Important Grind Size Selection Note: For soil that contains a significant amount of clay and passes water slowly, we recommend our standard grind (2-4 mm) which makes gel chunks the size of your thumb. Standard grind is the best at retaining stored water because it makes the largest gel chunks that lose water from evaporation the slowest due to its relatively small surface area. However, Standard grind absorbs water the slowest, taking over an hour to come to full hydration.

For highly modified bedding and potting soils or sandy soils that pass water quickly, we recommend the Medium grind (1-2 mm) which makes gel chunks the size of the end of your little finger - pea-gravel size. Medium grind absorbs water quickly, coming to full hydration in about ten minutes, able to catch water as it rapidly passes by. We don't recommend using Fine grind (.3-1mm) which makes tiny gel chunks the size of a pinhead, and which give up their stored water through evaporation VERY quickly due to their relatively large surface area. Fine grind is also used for a variety of industrial and commercial applications that fall significantly outside the boundaries of gardening.
