Product Description

Black Plastic Mulch (6 feet x 2,400 feet)

Suppresses weeds and reduces water loss in the field. This black mulch increases soil temperatures 3 to 5 F at depths of 2 to 6 inches. This is the area of greatest root growth early in the season, warming the roots which results in your plants growing faster growing season. Plastic mulch is flexible and stretchable so it will conform to both flat and raised beds. Since there is no light coming through under the black mulch the weeds can’t grow. Nutrient leaching is reduced during excessive rainy periods. This durable plastic mulch also works well with all crop varieties and can if careful be double cropped in one season. Plastic mulch is extruded from clear polyethylene resin into sheets of film of varying widths and lengths. In its natural state, plastic is clear, so carbon black is added to make it black. Generally, the thickness is 1.0 to 1.1 mil (1 mil = 1/1000 inch) although thinner materials are available in high density polyethylene. Because, of the inherent physical properties of black plastic mulch, it modifies the micro-climate around plants; enhancing growth, yield, and quality of horticultural crops. Over many years of experimentation and use since the late 1950’s, Black plastic has proven to be a boost to agricultural productivity. Earlier and higher yields even though there will be variations form year to year. Strong enough for either double cropping in the same season or possibly two seasons. Evaporation of soil moisture is reduced, plastic mulch is impervious to water any evaporation of soil moisture occurs only through the planting holes. Easy installed and field remove by hand or machine. Embossed 1.0 mil black UV inhibitor HD polyethylene plastic.
