This is a very good proposal. But I see two problems with it that should be resolved. First, the the Liquid Nanoclay technology that you claim to increase the water and fertilizer use efficiency in the desert is patented. If it is patented it will not be easily accessed by wold community to use for the specified purpose. If this technology is not meant for use by wold community, I don't see its importance.  The second point is that it is you ( proposal own) telling use that the Nanoclay technology is effective in increasing the water holding capacity of sands and them increase the water and fertilizer use efficiency. But How I and any other person prove that indeed your technology is effective unless you have evidence that you demonstrated the technology to public.
