Abstract: Hydrogels (polyacrylamide compounds) are recommended in agriculture and forestry as soil conditioners because they are able to absorb water and increase its stocks in the soil. The aim of this study was to determine the most suitable dose of hydrogel to establish seedlings of Enterolobium contortisilliquum (Vell.) Morong under two levels of luminosity. Seedlings of Enterolobium contortisilliquum (Vell.) Morong were planted in pots, following a design of subdivided plots, consisting of two levels of luminosity … Show more

“…Results similar to these were also observed as in the studies of Pontes Filho et al (2018), who during the analysis of the establishment of seedlings in Tamboril in two light levels and ten hydrogel dosages (ranging from 0.0 and 6.0 g L -1 ) found the above-ground dry weight to increase from the 2,0 g L -1 dosages under the sunlight and it was concluded that even though there was a response from the species to the hydrogel dosages, the benefits of polymers did not get so clear in the conditions that the study was carried out.…”

“…A commercial potassium acrylate-based polymer (PONTES FILHO et al, 2018) was used. Dry granules of this polymer were diluted in 1 L of water, according to the doses of each treatment (4, 5, and 6 g L −1 ) and applied to the respective pits (20×20×20 cm).…”

“…It is a superabsorbent polymer consisting of a slightly reticulate, three-dimensional polymeric network generally composed of ionic monomers with swelling capacity in the presence of water (SAHA et al, 2020). Some studies have reported the potential use of this polymer in agriculture and forestry (SAHA et al, 2020;PONTES FILHO et al, 2018).…”

“…Polymers composed of polyacrylamide, called hydrogels, are available on the market [ 1 ] and are used as substrates to cultivate plants. This type of hydrogel is already widely used in planting and cultivation in agriculture and forestry [ 2 ], with the main objective of supplying water slowly to the roots of plants when water is scarce in the soil [ 3 , 4 ], thus meeting the water needs of plants in critical periods. According to Cock et al [ 5 ], hydrogels developed with biodegradable polymers such as starch, chitosan, and modified natural fibers, cross-linked with potassium acrylate and acrylamide, are an interesting novelty for plant development.…”
