Moisture Farmers are found in the fictional Star Wars universe. The DVD cover of the Star Wars trilogy. ...


Moisture farmers are located on dry planets where water is scarce, such as the planet Tatooine on the Outer Rim. Rather than growing the traditional crops that Tatooine's arid climate would not allow, moisture farmers harvest water vapour from the atmosphere. Using special condensing machinery known as 'vaporators', moisture farmers find that a typical vaporator will yield 1-2 liters of condensed water a day, a figure that can vary depending on location. Areas of the Dune Sea particularly near the Jundland Wastes are known to be particularly dry. A planet (from the Greek πλανήτης, planētēs or wanderers) is a body of considerable mass that orbits a star and that produces no energy through nuclear fusion. ... A falling water droplet Water (from the Anglo-Saxon and Low German wæter) is a colourless, tasteless, and odourless substance that is essential to all known forms of life and is the most universal solvent. ... In George Lucass Star Wars saga, Tatooine is the home planet of the Skywalker family and the setting for much of the action in the sagas films (as well as several of the novels and other pieces of written fiction). ... Atmosphere is the general name for a layer of gases that may surround a material body of sufficient mass. ... The litre (or liter in US) is a metric unit of volume. ...


The moisture farmer's primary enemy are the Sand People, or Tusken Raiders, who feel that moisture farmers are infringing on their territory. Sand People attacks, which occur frequently, result in damaged equipment. This problem is exacerbated by the fact that no maps are allowed on Tatooine, therefore making respecting the territories of Sand People and Jawas extremely difficult. This inevitably leads to conflict. Some people believe the prohibition of maps is a deliberate action of the Empire as the conflict it causes necessitates the presence of stormtroopers under the guise of 'peacekeepers'. Tusken Raiders (Sand People) are fictional creatures that live on the planet Tatooine in the Star Wars universe, so named from the attack on one of Tatooines first settlements, Fort Tusken. ... A Tusken Raider Tusken Raiders (or Sand People) are fictional creatures in the Star Wars saga. ...
