Three-dimensional desert prevention net

Existing sand prevention and sand fixation devices mainly include physical sand fixation and biological sand fixation. This emerging 3D Desert Prevention Net can combine the advantages of the previous two methods. The framework made of straw in the early stage can quickly fix the sand, and the internal seeds germinate in the later stage. The straw framework is degraded at the same time, which provides organic fertilizer to drought-tolerant plants and is environmentally friendly.
