Gel seeds for poor / A new sowing method

Gel seeds for poor
Gel seeds for poor

How to improve food production in Africa is a hot topic in the world. Research shows that an important factor for the low overall agricultural output is that African farmers generally lack basic education, have little planting experience, and do not know how to match the nutrients required by crops. This directly leads to the effective germination rate and growth rate of seeds far lower than the general standard of agricultural rate.Then we come with an idea of gel seeds to combine seeds and nutrients in gel form, and provide farmers with the best sowing depth for different varieties of seeds.
