Ader presents Hungarian organic soil moisturiser on podcast

On his regular Blue Planet (Kek bolygo) podcast streamed on Monday, President Janos Ader presented a Hungarian organic product designed to preserve soil moisture and improve fertility.

Dubbed Water Retainer (Vizor), the liquid solution developed by Water&Soil in partnership with scientists of Budapest ELTE University and the University of Godollo helps plants absorb water while creating favourable environment for microbes in the soil, the company’s managing director said on the programme. It can be applied in organic farming as it is absorbed fully without residues in the soil in 100-105 days while increasing crop by 10-22 percent, Antal Vattay said.

After three years of testing, the product has been introduced in India, where it is now being tested in rice farming, he said. According to preliminary data, the product reduces water use by 50 percent, Vattay said.

Ader noted that the company will be a participant at the Planet Budapest 2021 sustainability expo held between Nov. 29 and Dec. 5.
