  • Adds essential organic material necessary for water retention in sandy soil and thus improving root growth and enhancing the sandy soil’s ability to retain and not leach out vital plant nutrients.
  • Mitigates the toxic effect on plants in high salinity and sodicity soils.
  • Enhances growth and proliferation of beneficial micro-organisms in soil.
  • Helps in balancing the soil pH.
