The green arrow / Plant nutrition replenish

The green arrow

Desertification control is very hard work, need a lot of labor for plant planting. In order to save labor cost, we designed "Green Arrow". It's the arrows that inject extra nutrients into the roots of the plant, and it is made of a decomposable material. Borrowing from ancient Chinese archery, it shoots plants from airplanes into the desert. The roots of the plants first absorb nutrients from the arrows, and as they adapt to the environment, the arrows break down. Compared with traditional planting methods, this method saves a lot of time and manpower, and improves the efficiency of land desertification control.
