Basic Questions

What is "Fasal Amrit"?


Fasal Amrit is a naturally processed super absorbent polymer made using organic wastes such as orange peel, banana peel, and other vegetable and fruit wastes.




How does it work?


  • In general, when water comes to the soil, it absorbs as per its water absorption capacity and the remaining water floats on the upper side of it or went down in the soil.
  • Most of the crops we grow in farms have their roots around 12-18 inches hence water below 18-24 inches is not directly taken by a plant.
  • When someone uses the Fasal Amrit by mixing it into the soil, the water absorption capacity of soil increases by 20-30 times that help the soil absorb a huge amount of water.
  • This absorbed water will be released back to the plant as per the requirements from the plant.




What is the mechanism behind the working of Fasal Amrit?


  1. Fasal Amrit is a naturally processed super absorbent polymer (SAPs).
  2. SAPs have a multi-dimensions complex structure of molecules.
  3. There is a void space between these molecules.
  4. When water comes into contact with SAPs, the void spaces fill with water and stored it.
  5. It works on the theory of osmatic pressure where water flows from the low water stress side to the high water stress side.
  6. When there is excess water in the soil, water stress in the soil falls and water flows into SAPs.
  7. When soil starting dry with time and water consumption from a plant, the stress started increasing.
  8. Hence water flows from SAPs to the soil which is consumed by a plant.
  9. As Fasal Amrit is made from organic matter, it always has low water stress which means all the water available in Fasal Amrit will be utilized by a plant.




What is the lifespan of Fasal Amrit?


Fasal Amrit's lifespan is 3 years if not opened. If the bag is opened make sure to pack it again to avoid any moisture going inside. Once opened we can't take responsibility for the lifespan of 3 years.




What kind of components Fasal Amrit gets when decomposes?


Fasal Amrit is a 100% biodegradable product and it decomposes in organic matter, organic carbon, and other components like Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Calcium, Potash, Iron, Copper, etc.




What is happens to Fasal Amrit after it gets mixed into soil?


Once it gets mixed in the soil, it starts absorbing the water and release it back to plant's root as per the requirement. This water absorbation and release process occur nearly 19-20 times in 5-6 months of the application of Fasal Amrit. After 5-6 months of application, Fasal Amrit doesn't absorb the water and it starts degrading in the soil like compost gets degrade in the soil.




Does Fasal Amrit have any negative impact on soil or crop or climate?


Fasal Amrit is made from organic waste such as fruit peels and vegetable trims without adding harmful chemicals. Hence, it is totally safe for the soil or crop, or climate.

Application of Fasal Amrit

Agriculture/Farming


  • Agriculture/FarmingFasal Amrit is highly effective in agriculture in drought-affected regions or low water regions.
  • It helps soil to enhance water absorption and hence maintain the soil moisture for a longer period of time.
  • It can increase the irrigation interval by 5-15 days.
  • The use of Fasal Amrit has helped farmers to save 1-2 irrigations in crops like Wheat.
  • It has helped many farmers to get 10-30% more yield with less water.




Horticulture


  • In horticulture, plants needed to be watered almost every day and in some cases of summer, need to water twice or thrice a day.
  • The use of Fasal Amrit will make sure to maintain the soil moisture for a few more extra hours.
  • It will not only helpful in reducing the water requirements but it will also help reduction in labor costs by reducing the number of irrigations.
  • As plants will always have adequate soil moisture hence flowering and fruiting will be at best.




Fruits/Vegetables


  • Most Fruits and Vegetables are highly water-intensive and sensitive which means they need a constant water supply.
  • Any moisture stress in Fruits and Vegetables may cause uneven growth of plants, fewer flowerings, less fruiting, uneven fruiting, and low-quality fruits.
  • The use of Fasal Amrit will make sure to provide that constant moisture to the plant hence plant will always have water to grow better, flowering better, and fruiting better.
  • Some of our customers have stated that "the use of Fasal Amrit has helped their plant for better flowering and more than that maintain flowering for fruiting in hot summer days of April-June."




Gardening/Home Plants


  • Gardening and Home plants are hobbies for many people but the availability of water has been always an issue.
  • Though people like to spare time to irrigate their plants at home or garden on hot summer days, plants need water multiple times a day.
  • Or if someone is going outside their home for a couple of days, they are risking their plants with no water until they return.
  • The use of Fasal Amrit can solve the above problem as it will maintain the required moisture for few more extra days.
  • After the application of Fasal Amrit, no need to water your plant everyday. It can save plant for 3-5 extra days without water.
