Biodegradable Mulches We all know the benefits of plastic mulch. Not only does it keep the weeds down, it warms up the soil giving us earlier (and more) tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and other heat loving veggies. But it costs us. Farmers estimate it costs $25-100 an acre for labor and disposal of plastic mulch. A possible alternative to black plastic mulch is biodegradable film mulches that look and act much like black plastic, but instead of ripping them up in the fall, you till them into the soil and the microbes degrade the material, leaving you a clean field in the spring.

I am really impressed, we used this for our crop and by the fall time it was already degrading in the ground, then we tilled the rest in the soil. As of this March there is no sign of plastic from last year.
