Mulch

Ginegar’s mulch films are advanced multi-layer mulch films that are manufactured using two methods – multi-layer blow film co-extrusion and cast (flat die) extrusion. Offering UV protection, these films are available either embossed (cast) or smooth (blown) and in a wide range of thicknesses and widths according to specific growers’ needs, specifications and crops. 

The cast production method involves embossing while the material is hot,
thereby changing the surface of the sheeting and endowing it with greater
flexibility, softness and strength. This allows better adherence of the sheeting
to the ground surface, and is particularly suitable for crops grown on
raised beds.We manufacture our agricultural cover films using our new five-layer co-extrusion technology. This enables us to process raw materials that guarantee the highest level of mechanical strength and flexibility, and compatibility with all mechanical testing standards.

 

Types of Mulch Films- Divided into Blown and Cast

 

Black/Silver and Black/White Films

These three-layered films are silver or white on the side facing up and black on the side facing down. The silver or white color reflects radiation to prevent the overheating of seedlings, plants and fruit, enhances photosynthesis and repels pests; and the black color prevents the penetration of light and reduces the germination of weeds.These films are recommended for vegetables, flowers and orchards with single row layouts or for the entire width of greenhouse gables. They are also available with wider widths for wider greenhouse coverage (4-9 meters).

 

Brown/Yellow Films

These films are are yellow on the side facing up and brown on the side facing down. The yellow color attracts pests (mainly tobacco whiteflies), and studies done by Israeli researchers have shown that the use of these films significantly reduces the chance of viral diseases being transmitted by tobacco moths to multiple crop types. The brown color reduces radiation transmission and weed germination.

These films are recommended for growing summer vegetables.

 

Brown/Silver Films

These three-layered films are silver on the side facing up and brown on the side facing down. The silver color reflects radiation to prevent the overheating of seedlings, plants and fruit, enhances photosynthesis and repels pests; and the brown color reduces radiation transmission and weed germination.

 

Black Films

Black films absorb and block radiation to suppress weed germination. As they absorb radiation, they warm up and heat the soil, and during hot seasons, may overheat result in burning, seedlings to collapse and hyperthermia in fruit.

 

Al-Or Brown Films

Al-Or brown films combine two properties – radiation transference in the NIR range, which contributes to the heating of the soil, and radiation blocking in the PAR range, which reduces weed germination in a similar manner to opaque films. These films are especially suitable for crops that grow in autumn, winter and early spring and in areas prone to weed growth.

Mulch Features

Mulch films reduce water evaporation and in this manner, save water usage. They also reduce the water fluctuations in the soil, and help maintain constant humidity in the root zone.

Close Sun Cover

The combined use of mulch films and drip irrigation improves water dispersion and contributes to maintaining consistent levels of moisture in the soil. In addition, darkness under the mulch “raises” root development upwards towards the ventilated upper layer of soil, where in the presence of oxygen, their activity is more efficient.

Transparent or opaque mulch films help retain heat and raise the temperature of the soil, which is extremely important in autumn, winter and early spring. Opaque films (such as black/silver) reduce the day-night temperature fluctuations in the soil, and black/silver and black/white mulch films reflect the light and enhance photosynthesis. These mulch films are suitable for hot seasons.

Substrate for Plants and Fruit 

The mulch films prevent direct contact between the plants and fruit with the soil and preserve the quality of the fruit.

Close Sun Cover

Reflective films (silver) repel harmful pests, specifically leaf aphids and trips. Yellow mulch films attract moths and reduce their adhesion ability.

In open areas, fertilizers may be diluted in the root zone area (specifically in high precipitation microclimate and rainy regions). The use of mulch films prevents this from occurring. However, the mulch films also prevent the removal of salts that accumulate around the root area after rainfall.

Ginegar’s upgraded films for orchard plantations are manufactured using our unique 5-layer technology, have very strong mechanical properties and are specifically formulated to prevent disintegration resulting from ultra-violet radiation.

Studies conducted during recent years in California and more recently in Israel on several types of crops showed that use of these films increases yields, improves the vitality of trees, contributes to significant savings in water and fertilizer, reduces saline damage, contributes to raising the root system to the topsoil and warms them in spring, improves the distribution of horizontal water in the soil, prevets the germination of weeds (except for purple nutsedge, cane , cogon grass , mesquite, or other penetrating weeds), helps save on herbicides and prevents damage to drip pipes.

The preparation of the orchard, implementation of the drip irrigation system and application of the mulch films are done before planting; and the crops are then planted into the mulch films. Ginegar offers full technical and agronomic support for the application of the mulch films.
