Title
(EN) Systems for producing superabsorbent polymers for use in agricultural applications
Abstract
(EN)

Systems for producing superabsorbent polymer particles for use in agricultural applications are disclosed. A monomer is graft polymerized onto a starch to form a starch graft copolymer. The moisture content of the starch graft copolymer is reduced through use of an extruder.
