Soil Tank

Due to the changes of universal climate, water runoff of soil has become a growing problem, so does farmland irrigation. And, it’s a hard thing that farmers pump out water from the deep earth.
Soil Tank, made by recycled plastic bottles, is a desirable device to solve water runoff of farmland by placing under the deep ground. During irrigating or raining, water can easily be stopped and stored in bottles of Soil Tank. Soil Tank not only saves the farmland moist, but also keeps the soil nutrient. Furthermore, by using the water provided by Soil Tank, there is a large number of manpower and material resources can be saved.
