PAgriSap is applied at the root zone of the plant. It can be applied using conventional farm equipment commonly used for the application of fertilizers by tilling or subsoil injection techniques. Initial application of between 200 to 700 kg per hectare is recommended in the first year to establish a water retaining “reservoir”. In subsequent years it is recommended that approximately 10% of the first year application rate is employed to maintain the efficacy of the reservoir. It is recommended that fertiliser dosages be reduced by 70 to 50% as the PAgriSap retains soluble fertiliser at the root zone.
