With the plans to use bio degradable cornstarch to help to cut down the weeding on the fields, it has been necessary to invent a mechanic aid to laying down the cornstarch. This is to save the time of growers, work shares and volunteers who are needed to ensure that there are adequate crops to plant out. And to plant them out.
