Why using Mulching Film?
Mulching Film prevents loss of moisture and acts as a barrier between the soil and atmosphere. Crops grow through slits or holes in thin plastic sheeting. Plastic mulch is often used in conjunction with drip irrigation.Some research has been done using different colors of mulch to affect crop growth.This method is predominant in large – scale vegetable growing.
Mulching can be one of the most beneficial things you can do for your soil and your plants. If you have not considered mulching your landscape in the past, you may want to reconsider.
