dc.description.abstract A set of renewable and biodegradable hydrogels based on acid whey and cellulose derivatives blended with poly (lactic acid) (PLA) were designed as eco-friendly biopolymeric material for sustainable agricultural applications. The physico-chemical properties of the hydrogel were evaluated using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), and rheological measurements. The effect of the whey/poly-saccharide/PLA hydrogel on soil quality improvement (water retention study, biodegradability, loading capacity and release of the fertilizers) and the growth pattern of Raphanus sativus and Phaseolus vulgaris has been also studied. The addition of PLA has been found to improve mechanical properties of the hydrogel. The introduction of 20% wt PLA extended decomposition time of hydrogels by 25% which makes the material more stable in the environment and maintaining the soil humidity for longer. The increasing the amount of PLA led to a rise in hydrogel viscosity brought about better entrapment efficiency of the fertilizers (86-92% for KNO3 and 87-96% for urea, resp.) compared to control (82% for KNO3 and 85% for urea, resp.). The novel hydrogels with swelling ratio of up to 500% showed potential as a sustainable water reservoir for plants improving water retention capacity of the soil by 30%. en
