The Groasis system mimics mother nature in the way trees are planted. The seedling is placed carefully in the ground while protected by a box which supports its root using minimal water which is supplied through a simple drip mechanism. This means the root stays alive but is “starved” of waterby, and thereby naturally induced to seek humidity in the deep. This stands in sharp contrast to standard irrigation practices whereby the root stays close to the surface in order to receive “human” support.

With Groasis, trees are planted in a way that mimics nature, requiring minimal water usage and custodial management. Given proper preparations and knowledge how and what to plant, survival rates are yet extremely high (above 90 percent). Plantations are undertaken using a boxx, either Waterboxx or Growboxx according to the land requirements. A drip-mechanism channels water to the root slowly. Atmospheric humidity is attracted during night, resulting in natural refilling, without any use of drip irrigation and minimum other irrigation.
