Desert Elf / Desertification control

Desert Elf

Afforestation in the desert is a very difficult thing.The survival rate of early stage saplings directly affects the success of afforestation.The existing saplings are maintained by frequent watering,which consumes a lot of manpower and resources.The survival rate is still only about 24%.Desert elf provide saplings with a relatively closed environment with water and nutrients to minimize water loss. After the saplings’ most vulnerable period of time,the product shell will degrade as time gose on and the strong root system breaks out,giving the saplings the ability to survive.Desert elf can greatly improve the survival rate of the saplings.
