Why are soil amendment products needed?

Weather and environmental events are affecting the rate of water retention, erosion, runoff and surface crust, which impact agricultural crop yield. Earth Chem, a division of Henwil Corp., manufactures and distributes the SOILPAM® family of products to stabilize soil structure and Water Reserve™ polymer crystals to conserve soil moisture and water.

In what formulations is SOILPAM®?

SOILPAM®, the leading soil amendment product used in furrow and sprinkler irrigation systems, is formulated in dry granules, solid tablets, and emulsified liquids and with various delivery systems to stabilize and protect your precious topsoil.

What are the benefits of SOILPAM®?

SOILPAM® increases crop emergence, increases water infiltration, improves erosion control, decreases soil crusting, and increases crop yield. Learn more

How is SOILPAM® used?

SOILPAM® is the leading soil amendment product to fight erosion on furrow- and sprinkler-irrigated land. SOILPAM® products include SOILPAM® L in liquid form and SOILPAM® TABLETS, along with SOILPAM® TrackSack and TrackLogs to mitigate wheel track ruts. Learn more

Is SOILPAM® environmentally safe?

Yes, SOILPAM® is very safe for the environment. It breaks down into carbon dioxide, water, and ammonium nitrate under field conditions.

What is Water Reserve and why do I need it?

A moist root zone is critical to any plant. Water Reserve is a synthetic acrylic polymer that acts as a mini sponge, storing more than 100 times it weight in water. Polymers, when cross-linked, create polymeric chains. When exposed to water through osmosis this polymer network of chains becomes absorbed with water, creating a hydrogel that dispenses 95% of its stored water. The process is repeated when the plants are next watered. Water Reserve is non-toxic and safe to use in turf/sod, potting and transplanting applications. Learn more
