MIPATEX offers a wide variety of mulching films for different growing conditions.
Silver/Black Mulch: Suitable for almost every crop, silver-black mulch is the most popular mulch among farmers. It blocks sunlight from passing below mulch to prevent weed growth. The metallic silver outer surface reflects sunlight, acts as an insect repellent and helps decrease pesticides. This mulch reflects 27% of the light to the fruits and plants; it improves color development.
White/Black Mulch: Highly recommended for crops that require low temperature at the root system. Its outer white surface reflects 60% of sunlight and provides good insulation to the soil from temperature. The black inner surface blocks sunlight from reaching the soil and prevent weed growth.
Transparent (Clear Mulch): Transparent mulching film is ideal for the winter season as it allows sunlight to increase soil temperature and boost root development and early harvest. The disadvantage of clear mulch is that it does not prevent weed growth.
Black Mulch: Black mulching film is ideal for cold weather. It retains maximum sunrays received during the day and transmits them to the soil to increase its ambient temperature and provide an optimized environment for the best roost stock growth. Also, eliminate weed growth by preventing light transmission to the soil.
Color Mulch: Color mulch sheet is a midway solution for an application that requires advanced weeds controls and moderate soil heat up for optimized roots growth. Color mulch also attracts harmful insects that can attack plant leaves. These films are available in red, brown, green, yellow, and blue.
Biodegradable Mulch: MIPATEX biodegradable mulch sheet contains biobased content, which works as traditional plastic mulch and reduces environmental impact. In addition, the farmer does not have to collect and dispose of the mulch sheet after harvest.
