As Dankohzee pointed out to me recently, water saving grains are great if it hardly rains where you grow. I knew about synthetic polymers which "are said" to give a bad taste (some say it changes nothing), so I discarded them to be sure. But some newer kinds are 100% organic and break down into food for the micro herd and plant so it's all good. This is outstanding news for all guerilla growers who face scorching hot weather in the Summer. Thank you Dankohzee! You just saved my sorry ass several harsh trips and probably a lot of yield (heat stress)! This is the perfect weapon for grass to survive on its own longer, and not turn into a crisp because a few days of watering were missed. Oh yeaaaah! +rep Dank!
