Water sorption capacity is an important characteristic for nano clay composite (NCC) super absorbents especially when used under rainfed condition. The Zn coated nano clay composite cross-linked polyacrylamides polymers were synthesized by polymerization reaction with 10% acrylic acid, acrylamide, 0.9% ammonium persulphate as initiator, 0.12% N, N/ methyl biscrylate as cross linker loaded with 8% benitonite clay and 10 % Zn citrate at 650C reaction temperature. The water absorbency of product had 165.7 g/g in tap water, 183.0 g/g in distilled water and 74.3 g/g in 1% NaCl solution. Water-holding capacity of the soil with NCC was 8.5% more as compared to original soil.
