The device helps to fight drought in planting forest stands. It is designed for very fast and efficient line planting of seedlings of not only forest trees, but also banana trees, coffee trees etc. in areas affected by water scarcity. It utilizes the classic principle of the creasing machine, adding to each seedling a set amount of a mixture based on a hydrophilic polymer (hydrogel). It demonstrably increases the taking of seedlings and at the same time significantly reduces water consumption for irrigation. The device is designed to be operated without major skill requirements, so it is also very suitable for the developing world. Planting efficiency is up to 1,000 seedlings per hour, which significantly exceeds the possibilities of manual planting.
