The majority of freshwater consumption in the world is for agriculture and unfortunately many countries are not using water properly. That is why farmers are facing salinity, land degradation, water scarcity, low profit and other relevant problems. Due to unsustainable and insufficient irrigation methods, farmers waste a huge amount of water and already a lot of countries are facing water scarcity significantly.

Biodegradable mulching not only decreases water demand but also increases soil organic matter. This way, instead of wasting or burning crop residues farmers can reuse and get profit from it.
This short film shows that we don’t have to know sophisticated technical methods to practice proper farming. As MetaMeta says, “Sometimes you’re standing on a solution without even knowing it…”
