Soil & Water Technologies
UPL Zeba is a patented soil enhancement technology, the culmination of a research led by USDA. An excellent water management tool that also improves soil health, Zeba is environment-friendly and leaves no residue. With its wide range of applications across terrains, crops and climate zones, it is sure to change the face of agriculture.
Zeba increases a soil’s ability to aggregate and hold onto soil particles. It also improves aeration by providing compost that increases microbes. As plant roots survive and flourish, leaching is reduced and the soil matrix as a whole takes advantage of the conditioning benefits of Zeba.
Each Zeba granule is capable of holding 400 times its own weight in water. By releasing just the right amount of this moisture in response to plant root suction, it ensures its availability throughout the growing season.
As Zeba directly increases the soil’s ability to hold water, it also holds dissolved nutrients. These are released only on plant’s demand, effectively preventing nutrient leaching.
The positive impact of Zeba on the environment is one of the biggest differences between products in this class. Since Zeba is based on corn starch, when broken down, it reverts to a substance which is a source of food for microbes and leaves no residue.

Watch Narayan Raghunath Pangawane, a farmer from Nashik, India, speak highly of UPL's Zeba. He has been using Zeba for the last ten years and is more than happy with its performance. With Zeba on his side, his fruit cultivation no more depends on rainfall or irrigation and his orchards are laden with the most beautiful fruits even in drought conditions.
See how Zeba has lived up to the expectations of farmers from Manuka in Hanumangad, India, by making their plants healthy and disease-free and increasing the yield of round gourds, with minimum use of water. They have recommended Zeba to other farmers too.
UPL's Zeba has been a boon to the drought stricken region of Kothale in Pune, India. Rahul Sahebrao Bhosale had been struggling with the shortage of water and facing low fruit yields due to it for years before he came to know about Zeba. Now, with the moisture retaining Zeba to his rescue he has better and bigger fruits and that too in larger numbers per tree.
