Mulch paper with UV treatment by Grekkon Limited is for growing crops in the open field or in the greenhouse. Our mulch paper is an effective way of water conservation, weed suppression. It raises soil temperature. Our silver on black mulch paper is available as; 23, 30, 60, and 80 microns with varying widths and lengths. The choice of thickness is a factor of crop location and a grower’s budget. The number of seasons too it is intended for use
MULCH POLYTHENE SPECIFICATIONS
Our widths are; 1M, 1.2M, and 1.6M according to the mulch paper thickness. The black part remains underneath to preserve soil warmth, and the silver part goes on the outside to reflect excessive heat. Light reflected by the silver side is a repellent to many insect pests too.
Mulch paper’s advantage over organic mulch is that it is not a hiding place for insect pests. It is re-usable over subsequent seasons. This is important in tropical regions where pest infestation is huge due to high temperatures throughout the year.
ADVANTAGES OF MULCH PAPER
i. Early start for crops. Plants take off with vigor because they have sufficient moisture retained within their root zones. Again the warmth retained in the soil hastens crop growth.
ii. Reduces water wastage. Water loss resulting from evaporation is largely reduced which saves on daily irrigation operational costs.
iii. Less upkeep. It stifles weeds which saves weeding operational costs, removes competition for nutrients and light against the crop by weeds.
iv. Better crop quality. Mulched crops have better yield quality as a result of less disease and pest attack and more vigorous growth.
