Zeba is a patented, starch-based, superabsorbent soil enhancement designed to keep a constant supply of moisture available to germinating seed, seedlings, and plants throughout the growing season. Made from natural cornstarch, each Zeba granule works like a sponge, absorbing in excess of 400 times its original weight in water, forming hydrogels that slowly release moisture back to pants as they need it. Zeba also binds and releases water-soluble nutrients, keeping more fertilizer in the root zone where it can be used by plants. Overtime, Zeba is broken down and consumed by naturally occurring microorganisms in the soil, leaving no residue behind.
