Flexigreen Biodegradable Mulch Film

Flexigreen Biodegradable Mulch Film for Sustainable Farming

An effective mulch film should be able to protect and preserve harvests as well as be able to withstand even the roughest terrain and weather conditions.
Plastic mulch film however has a negative impact on the environment and only adds to pollution in the long run. Our mulch film is 100% biodegradable and compostable, making it not only the best choice but the most environmentally friendly one too.

100% Biodegradable & Compostable Biopolymers for Agricultural Applications

Conventionally, plastic can take about 1,000 years to degrade, for this reason many people and companies have decided to reduce their use or purchase products that don’t contain plastic. 

What is composability:

Bio-compostable polymer undergoes degradation by biological processes during composting. It yields CO2, water mineral salts and new biomass, which leave no visible, distinguishable or toxic residue.   

Flexigreen Mulch Film vs Plastic or Wood Mulch

Regular plastic is blight on the planet, taking around 1000 years to break down and never fully disintegrates. This means that regular agricultural plastic is posing a major ecological threat. Flexigreen mulch film, on the other hand, is made of compostable, oxo-degradable Biopolymers. It will completely biodegrade into harmless CO2, water and bio mass, leaving zero distinguishable toxic residue in the long term. Our compostable mulch film is an ideal alternative for sustainable agriculture.

So why not just use wood mulch?

In addition to being eco-friendly, Flexigreen’s biodegradable mulch film offers a higher barrier compared with wood pallet composites. It is also transparent, allowing all important sunlight to penetrate to the growing plant much faster than wood or opaque plastic mulch.

Mulch Film for Water Conservation

One of the major reasons farmers and smaller agricultural gardeners make use of mulch film is to conserve water. The film works by preventing water from evaporating too quickly. It also gives a surface for condensation to take place, thus keeping plants, ground and roots moist for significantly longer.

Advantages of Flexigreen Mulch Film:

  • Completely biodegrades into water, CO2, and bio matter
  • Conserves Water
  • Promotes sustainable agriculture
  • Maintains a conductive microclimate for optimal plant growth
  • Is flexible enough to allow for mechanical installation
  • Stable while in use – it remains intact throughout the majority of the cropping season
  • Undergoes complete degradation after soil incorporation or composting
  • Does not need to be removed after the crop cycle
  • Reduces labour costs as it can simply be ploughed into the soil after the crop cycle
  • Has no adverse environmental impact
  • Is a cost effective and economical mulching solution
  • Is a time efficient system as no recollection is required
  • Increases long-term fertility of the soil
  • Improves the nutrient content and humidity of the soil while in use
  • Reduces greenhouse gas emissions compared with regular mulch
  • Improves and speeds up the fruition process
