NanoClay Sandy Soil Enhancer


We have developed NanoClay, which allows us to cultivate sandy soil into fertile soil. This process normally takes 15-20 years, but we do it in 7 hours. NanoClay also reduces the water needed for irrigation by between 50%-66%. Many areas around the globe that are drought stricken today would be thriving farmland, if treated with NanoClay.
