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.
