It can remain on the soil and be plowed after mechanical harvesting. Microbes and natural soil particles, as well as bacteria and fungi, recognize the film structure as food, allowing them to metabolize it.
Finally, the remaining products after biodegradation are CO2, water and biomass.
The advantages for farmers are great: increased yields, less herbicides and pesticides, water savings, earlier harvesting and labor savings.
Will be exhibiting at Fruit Attraction at stand 8A02F.
