Polyethylene Mulch

Mulch is a layer material applied on top of soil, the main purpose of doing so is to conserver the moisture, reduce weed growth, improve fertility and health of the soil and enhance the visual appeal of the area. There are different types of mulch that you can practice but we recommend polyethylene, here ae some of the advantages;

  • Improving the yield
  • Water saving
  • Less weeds, saving herbicides
  • Keeping the soil moisture- less evaporation
  • Forming a wet continuous strip under the mulch providing excellent environment for roots development (darkness + oxygen) in the upper surface
  • Reduce salinity
  • Changing the microclimate around the plant
  • Attract and reject insects
  • Reduces humidity inside the greenhouse preventing fungi diseases like Botrytis, blight and downy mildew
