09 Jul POLYTER – AN INVENTION FOR GREENING DESERTS
A horticulturist, Philippe Di Ouaki Giomo, has developed a high capacity of water retention, the Polyter, based totally degradable cellulose polymers, able to recreate in sterile soil fertile underlayer in three years.
At first, they look like little translucent crystals. Water them and they will increase up to five hundred times their mass in water and keep it in their cellulose nets, under most climates and at all depths of soil.
A few grams of this product, scattered along the seed or the plant, will save you huge amounts of water, you understand, especially in arid areas. Combining this water-retaining-fertilizer to irrigation drip-drop, ultimately, we could not lose a single gram of H20! “Said Philippe Ouaki Di Giorno in the magazine” New Key “(No. 30 , summer 2001).
The Polyter enters in osmosis with the roots of the plants. Water, instead of seeping deeper and deeper into the soil, swells it, and it quickly forms with the roots that literally come to be grafted a layer of soil of exceptional fertility. The “hydric stress” of the plant disappears and with it many dramatic consequences due to the lack of water.
A non-polluting technique against drought
After ten years of experience in all latitudes, Burkina Faso, Japan, Egypt and Norway, Morocco in America and France, where the Polyter was implemented in the gardens of the Senate this invention has proven. “Our last operation on the cultivation of beans in Senegal increased production from nine to fifteen tons per hectare, and that, putting only two grams of water-retaining-fertilizer per package of green beans … In France, the most interesting research has been conducted in the sands of the Landes, in particular on the dune du Pilat, where we managed to reforest an area considered impossible, “says Philippe Ouaki Di Giorno. “We have the technical means to solve even the Kazakhstan water problems known as the cotton fields have pumped so much water that the Aral Sea dried up! In three years of root stimulation on acacia trees, we can create micro climates, stop the advance of sand curb the wind. The agricultural schools teach that below 100 millimeters of rain a year, nothing can grow. It’s wrong. If you store most of this water in the basement, through the water-retaining-fertilizer injections, it will be as if it had rained 300 millimeters to 500! I think in the long term, we could green the Sahara. ” nothing can grow. It’s wrong. If you store most of this water in the basement, through the water-retaining-fertilizer injections, it will be as if it had rained 300 millimeters to 500! I think in the long term, we could green the Sahara. ” nothing can grow. It’s wrong.

This technique is an excellent complement to the environmental technologies that should serve generous global economic harmonization projects. And at the same time, by greening the deserts of Africa, Australia, Mongolia and America, to give oxygen back to a planet in desperate need.
The economy against humanitarian
For now, the inventor of Polyter did not find the financial means to develop the industrial sector required for widespread commercialization of its product. Some large groups have tried to buy his patent, but seeing that they were more interested in profit than humanitarian and ecology Ouaki Philippe Di Giorno has refused to comply. “My refusal has repeatedly almost cost me my life. One year, I even had to take bodyguards … I have to say, unfortunately, that this scenario is the same in the South and West. Industrial espionage, arrogance, lies and company … I oppose this geo-industrial logic that makes the North continue to enrich and developing countries poorer. “He added. What to do, face this systematic barrier against environmental inventions necessary for the harmonious development of humanity on every continent? What can we do but regroup to require public authorities to implement a real eco-development policy?
For a human globalization
Many independent researchers are making major discoveries that are not commercialized because they do not want their invention to be taken over by multinational agri-food companies. About ten years ago, Philippe Desbrosses, in his book Le Krach alimentaire, recalled that a farmer is not free to use his own seeds for his crops. It must obtain hybrid seeds from the cooperative and acquire the corresponding fertilisers that will enable it to achieve the yields imposed by economic rules.
Nothing has been done to remedy this, because freeing the market’ for seeds and seeds, for example, would mean, for macro-economists and the leaders of multinational seed companies, renouncing the prodigious profits of patented seeds’.
On the contrary, politicians refuse to declare GMOs “potentially hazardous to health,” and it took the struggles of activists of organic farming and sustainable agriculture for they mean to Monsanto do not produce its GM fitted the gene “Terminator”, which was to make it impossible I self reproduction of the plant to make farmers and ranchers dependent of the manufacturing company. Ultimately, this invention was threatening the freedom of living of all beings on this planet, plants, animals and humans.
Clearly, the world is not ready to receive generous inventions and promote fair trade. Meanwhile, politicians are pretending to listen to “contestations” and big corporations are getting richer with outdated and polluting products while trying to catch up with these brilliant inventors, ready to give their invention away rather than see it bought and confiscated by world agri-food monopolies.
