    The farmer shown in the picture spraying water to the plants is WASTING lot of water. Not only is he WASTING a scarce resource in view of the approaching dry season, but he is also irrigating and helping the growth of weeds that would deplete the soil nutrients in direct competition with his beneficial plants to yield his revenue from. CREES can extend some good and practical advice to the poor gentleman farmer, shall we?
