In every crop, occasionally a plant dies. If this is a tree, a shrub or a bush in a row that is being irrigated, then there is a problem. For instance, established plants need 1 liter (0.25 gallon) per day, and newly interplanted plants need 4 liters (1 gallon) per day. With drip irrigation, this difference in water requirements between established and interplanted plants cannot be managed. Often this means that interplanted plants often are watered individually by hand; twice a week the employees carry extra water to the interplanted plants.
By using the waterboxx, this extra work can be avoided. The interplanted plants are planted in the biopolymer (biodegradable) waterboxx; it immediately starts doing its job and corrects this problem. Initially, the box gives extra water to the plant; and after a year when the box has degraded, it functions as an additional source of nutrients to stimulate plant growth.
Therefore, interplanting with the Groasis waterboxx saves money, eases labor workload, and guarantees healthy growth of newly planted plants.
