Excellent Product. An ultra reflective white top white layer reduces stress on heat sensitive crops by decreasing the soil temp and provides additional light reflection to the underside of the crop.
We only carry the highest quality plastic mulch. These are embossed which makes them easier to lay down and less likely to rip.

What is Embossed Plastic Mulch?
Embossed plastic has visible diamond patterns on the surface, which give the plastic a wrinkled appearance. This mulch is generally more resistant to damage due to punctures, wind fatigue and cracking than non-embossed mulches. The 'diamonds' are extra protection and make the plastic stronger. Slick Plastic will generally not hold up as well.
Most common agricultural mulches include black, white and white on black, which may be used with either side facing upward, depending on the specific need. Clear mulch is used when most rapid soil warming is needed, but weeds will grow below it, thereby limiting its usefulness. White mulch reflects solar radiation and is used where soil cooling is desired, such as establishing fall crops during the heat of summer. Research has shown that white or aluminum reflective mulch also repels aphids, which spread some virus diseases in vine crops such as squash. Various other colors of mulch may affect plant growth in a positive way.
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.
