Blue Plastic Mulch
Watermelon production increases with the use of Blue Plastic Mulch film. Research test results also show a significant increase in yield with zucchini and cucumbers. On average, zucchini and cucumber yields increased 20% over a three year period.
It is the color of the mulch that changes the intensity of certain wave lengths of light that in turn has an impact on plant growth and subsequent yields. Some studies by Penn State University show boosts in crop developments up to 35%!
This blue plastic mulch is made of high quality, durable plastic that is 1.0 mil thick and lays well over flat or raised beds. It has season-long integrity and is easily removed from the field after harvest.
