Black Mulch

Mulching improves plant growth by suppressing weed growth whilst creating a warmer, more robust soil environment for crop growth.

Fruit vegetables, cucurbits and soft fruits

Fruit vegetables, cucurbits and soft fruits ►

Typical crops include strawberry, melon, zucchini, & cucumber. These plants have rough leaves and stems which can abrade and penetrate floating row covers. These vegetables, usually planted, need temperature and humidity to take properly. They generally have an important vegetative development

Leaf and stem vegetables

Leaf and stem vegetables ►

These vegetables can be either sown or planted. Planted crops are generally sensitive to shocks caused by temperature and humidity variation. Using a floating row cover can significantly reduce the risk of these shocks. Sown crops require a fleece to reduce crusting and maintain the humidity and thermal effect necessary to have a uniform germination. They generally have an important vegetative development.

Ornamentals

Ornamentals ►

Ornamentals includes lawn, young trees and ornamentals in nurseries. Fleece is used for overwintering of the plants in container and ensures an optimal winter protection against:

  • breaking of the exposed parts of the plants (frost, snow, wind)
  • dehydration of twigs, buds and leaves (conifers and evergreen plants)
  • bursting of branches
  • asphyxiation of the roots
  • freezing of the plant
  • sudden variations of temperature

It also protects the lawns in the case of global sowing or in case of overseeding.

Young Plants

Young Plants ►

Young plants include both vegetables and ornamentals that are grown under cover in nurseries before planting.
To maintain the optimum temperature and soil humidity, planted seeds are covered with Agryl. The plant growth is then early and uniform.
The duration of covering depends on the sensitivity of the species to high temperature.

Focused on surface layer application, this black fleece balances the openness required to avoid pooling and surface water retention, whilst blocking sufficient light in the 700-1400nm range that promotes weed growth.

Application Info

Agryl Black Mulch has been designed with reduced light permeability and the residual strength necessary to reduce weed growth around crop bases. Unlike Polyethylene mulch films, it remains highly permeable to water and air, maintaining the quality of the soil, avoiding pooling of surface water and if necessary the transmission of liquid fertilizer. Highly stabilized, Mulch films can remain on the fields for up to three seasons, minimising weeding and maintainance times.
