Cultivable Lees-Foam / Organic potted plants

Cultivable Lees-Foam
Cultivable Lees-Foam

As extreme climate and floods destroy lands and farms in Southeast Asia, saltwater causes soil salinity rise and affects agricultural production. Salinization threatens crops and makes farming difficult. Therefore, we develop Cultivable lees Foam that can provide food and adjust the PH value of the saline soil. It contains waste wine dregs and starchadhesives that are nutritious and decomposable. Users can easily grow healthy vegetables with cultivable lees foam. After planting, the product's remaining can use as fertilizer and sources to neutralize the PH value.
