Seeds Hopper is an anti-desertification plant appliance, which can collect condense water and rain to ensure the growth of plants in a desert. It is also convenient to transport.
In order to control sand storms, the desertification situation needs to be controlled first. However, this is a problem that is difficult to solve because of the lack of water. The water capacity in or near the desert is simply not enough for plants to grow or even survive. As such, the Seeds Hopper is designed as a solution.
Seed Hopper has a cone-shaped design that can be stuck into the ground like a spear. The appliance has two parts – the lower part for seed storage contains seeds, soil, and fertilizer; the upper part is an umbrella-shaped water-harvest device, which can collect raindrops and harvest condensed water using a special fabric. Seeds Hopper is made of recycle-paper that can be degraded naturally.
