Mulch Film

VSC multi-layer mulch film, one or two colors, has excellent mechanical properties. Black on the side facing down prevents light penetration and reduces the germination of weeds. Shiny silver or white on the side facing up enhances photosynthesis and repels insect pests which can use less pesticide. Other benefits such as save water usage especially in dry season and maintain humidity in the root zone.
