Water-retaining Helper

Improving food production is the most effective way to end hunger. Most areas of Africa are suffering from a severe water shortage, with only 3% of arable land equipped with irrigation facilities, which seriously affecting the growth of crops. Considering the low mechanization degree of Agriculture in Africa, We design an environment friendly trolley for African farmers to mix water-retaining agent with soil while ploughing, in order to reduce the loss in farm caused by the shortage of water.
