Some arid regions have a surprisingly high amount of precipitation, but it all falls in a short period of time. The challenge is collecting this water and delivering it to plants over a longer time period. AquaPro’s Groasis is one solution.
The Groasis is basically an evaporation-proof container with a fan-shaped lid to catch and condense any rain or even dew.
A wick provides water from the container to the seedling over time, providing much-needed moisture during otherwise stressful times.
AquaPro’s Groasis is being used in reforestation efforts in arid regions and has also been used in California’s Napa Valley.
The video from Nourishing the Planet shows the process.
