none chemical fertilizer / fertilizer stick

none chemical fertilizer
none chemical fertilizer

None chemical fertilizer is aimed to a sustainable farming by stopping abusing chemical fertilizer.
In developing countries,Compaction,water eutrophication are due to abuse of fertilizer.We need a more substainable way of farming so we need fallow. To make fallow more effiency, we design Soli-tick to visualize the fertility of soil and help improvement of the soil.
Soil-tick will be decomposed by edaphon after plugging into the land. Bit by bit it disappears, little by little the soil recovers.
