For agriculture

Soil structure

Seed and water are undeniably vital in agriculture. But let's not overlook the critical importance of soil—the often underestimated cornerstone of farming success. Every farmer must prioritize the health of their soil. Sadly, soil degradation poses a formidable challenge in numerous regions, making the transition to fertile ground a daunting task.

Soil Damage

Erosion and Compaction

Erosion and compaction cause much damage in agriculture and are sources of substantial yearly yield decreases. The soil loses its silk and nutrients as water flows through it, while the wind carries soil particles, potentially harming young plants post-germination.

Our range of products, known for more than 40 years for their agronomic efficiency, are now available with their new easy-to-use version.

FLOBOND™ range works on soil structure, decreasing erosion, leaching, crusting, and slaking. It is available in dry or liquid form and is easy to dilute, apply, and clean. This range will help you fight erosion and improve soil structure.

Save your soil: Ways to Stop Erosion

Non-cover crops and exposed soil are the culprits behind erosion. Additionally, erosion can be triggered by excessive water flow and wind. When irrigation water or rainfall lands on bare soil, it can penetrate deeply, causing the soil aggregates to break down—a process known as slaking. This results in the transportation of fine soil particles by the water, ultimately depositing them into nearby rivers or canals.

Slaking marks the initial stage of erosion, breaking down soil aggregates into delicate particles. As water infiltrates the aggregates, it compresses the air within, which then forcefully escapes, dismantling the soil structure. These particles are then carried away by water flow.

FLOBOND™ intervenes by flocculating soil particles before their disintegration. This preserves the soil’s original structure, preventing erosion. Erosion issues exist in all civil engineering places. One solution is to use hydroseeders with polymers.

Crusting Fighter

Maintain your soil softness: reducing crusting and keeping the soil

When exposed to water, soil particles undergo slaking, causing them to become fragile and compacted, restricting air and water passage.

Consequently, the soil hardens, losing its natural softness. Depending on its composition, the soil may form crusts as it dries. These crusts inhibit water infiltration, hamper germination, and elevate temperatures.

FLOBOND™ counteracts this by flocculating soil particles, thereby maintaining soil structure and preventing the formation of crusts.

The soil, which is non-crust, will have better infiltration and will allow for better germination.


Better soil structure means softer soil

Keep soil light and fresh, and optimize your fertilizer

SNF solutions preserve soil structure, preventing erosion and crust formation while ensuring the soil remains light and soft on the surface and within. This preservation enhances water retention through capillary action, as soil aggregates remain intact. Consequently, water efficiency is maximized. Moreover, these solutions facilitate the optimal placement of fertilizers near the root zone, enhancing their effectiveness in promoting plant growth.
