As I am sure we have heard so many times, sharing is living. In this sense, social networks are a very useful tool for getting your ideas across to as many people as possible. This is exactly what we are going to see in the video we share below, in which a farmer shows the trick he uses to water his plants only twice a year.

This is a more sustainable and efficient way of doing it. It is an innovative, homemade method of delivering water directly to the roots, in this case, of a cherry tree. In this way, it makes it possible to waste less water and thus carry out more effective irrigation.

Specifically, the video has been disseminated through TikTok. It shows a plastic tube that the farmer places up to the trunk of the fruit tree. This allows the water to reach the roots of the plant directly, without the need to water it from the surface.

It consists of a system that prevents evaporation and allows water to be absorbed more effectively. However, the protagonist of this film goes even further. The tube is covered with tiles to protect it from exposure to the sun.

In this sense, it should be taken into account that plastic tends to deteriorate over time as a result of solar radiation. This protection allows for a longer durability of this particular irrigation system.

Once the contraption is ready, the farmer uses a small carafe to pour the water into the pipe while he tells how he has only watered the cherry tree twice this year. In addition to this, he also shows how he places a protection on the opening of the pipe so that insects or any unwanted material does not obstruct the water flow.
