Superabsorbent materials are
becoming increasingly important in a number of applications such as
horticulture. A bio-mass of coir fibre has been mixed and treated suitably
with a eco-friendly and water absorbing powder such that the absorbency of
the composition can be controlled between 300% and 1200% of the parent
weight of fibre mass. The developed process is very simple, does not involve
any effluent and is eco-friendly as well. Once absorbed the water is
retained very efficiently in the system for a very long time (weeks).

well as in Agriculture under arid climatic conditions.
