What is a Biodegradable Agricultural Mulch Film?

Biodegradable mulch films offer a promising alternative to traditional polyethylene plastic mulches. These films are biodegradable, meaning they decompose in the environment over time.

They provide all of the advantages of traditional mulch film, such as increased soil temperature, erosion control, weed suppression, and improved crop yields while reducing plastic pollution. Biodegradable mulch films can be an essential tool in creating sustainable agricultural systems.

  • Biodegradable mulch films offer several advantages over traditional plastic mulches, including being more environmentally friendly.
  • It is easier to apply and remove than conventional plastic due to its lightweight nature.
  • Its unique structure allows air and water to pass through while also blocking sunlight, helping retain soil moisture and temperature better than other mulches.
  • Biodegradable mulch films are made from natural materials such as cornstarch and other plant-based polymers, making them safe for use around food crops.
  • They come in various colors, allowing them to be used for weed control or extra insulation during cold weather conditions.
  • These films are also ideal for erosion control on slopes or hillsides due to their biodegradability which prevents further environmental damage when left behind after use.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Biodegradable mulch film is a great choice for many outdoor landscaping projects. It is made from natural materials, it’s lightweight and easy to use, and it’s available in a variety of colors and textures. You can find biodegradable mulch film at most garden centers and home improvement stores.
  • Here are some situations where biodegradable mulch film may be the best option for your project:
  • You must protect plants vulnerable to frost damage, such as newly planted bulbs or flowers.
  • Biodegradable mulch film can help protect plants from frost damage during winter. The material absorbs heat from sunlight and releases it at night, keeping your plants warm enough to survive even after the weather turns cold.
  • You’re landscaping an area near a body of water where wet soil would be problematic.
  • Suppose you have an area near water that tends to flood frequently, like a drainage ditch or low-lying area near a creek bed. In that case, you may want to use biodegradable mulch film instead of traditional plastic sheeting because it will break down faster once it becomes saturated with water.
  • Biodegradable mulch film can be used in various situations, but it is most commonly used to cover crops and fields. The mulch acts as a protective barrier against weeds, pests, and moisture loss.
  • The most popular crops for biodegradable mulch film are potatoes, carrots, corn, tomatoes and squash.
  • Biodegradable mulch film can also be used around flower beds, vegetable gardens, and other landscaping projects.
  • To use biodegradable mulch films, you need to know which plastics can’t be used in your garden. The good news is that there are not many. There are only a few types of plastic that can’t be used as biodegradable mulch film, and they include:
  • Biodegradable Mulch Film Types That Can’t Be Used
  • Polyethylene (PE) – This is one of the most common types of plastic, and it does not break down easily in the environment. It takes hundreds of years for PE to break down completely. Therefore, this type of plastic should not be used as a biodegradable mulch film because it will not break down over time as other plastics do.
  • Polypropylene (PP) – Like PE, PP is another type of plastic that is not good for use as a biodegradable mulch film because it does not break down easily in the environment and takes hundreds of years before it decomposes completely.
  • Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) – This type of plastic also breaks down very slowly in the environment and, therefore, should not be used for making biodegradable mulch film either because it will not decompose quickly.
  • Biodegradable mulch films are commonly used to protect landscape plants from weeds and erosion. The mulch film is made of a biodegradable material, such as jute or plastic. This can be beneficial because the material will degrade over time, and the plant roots will be able to grow through it. However, many people object to using these mulch films for several reasons.
  • The main reason that people don’t like biodegradable mulch films is that they tend to be more expensive than traditional plastic mulch. The cost may vary depending on where you’re buying the material and how much you need, but it’s typically around two times more expensive than regular plastic sheeting.
  • Another objection is that although the material does break down over time, it doesn’t decompose into the soil as other materials do. Instead, it becomes brittle and breaks apart into small pieces that will eventually become part of your lawn or garden bed soil when you dig up your plants for transplanting or planting new ones.
  • Some people don’t like these mulches because they think they’re unsightly or ugly compared to traditional plastic sheeting, which looks clear and clean-cut when applied correctly.
