There are many types of mulch, and different mulch has different roles, so what are the benefits of mulch in agricultural production?

(1) What are the benefits of mulching?

Here we first take a look at the benefits of mulching film, mulching film technology is now more and more widely applied to cover the key technology of mulching film, in many crops of rice planting will basically use mulching film technology, and the benefits are more.

For example, mulching film can increase soil temperature, inhibit drastic changes in soil temperature, reduce water evaporation, and have the actual effect of water retention. In addition, covering mulch can also increase the effect of sunlight, inhibit the growth of miscellaneous weeds, and reduce the harm of diseases and pests. This is not only beneficial to the high yield of crops, to the field management cultivation technology, but also has another benefit, that is, can promote the early sowing and marketing of some crops.

(2) What is the difference between milky mulch and gray black mulch, how to choose?

Milky mulch film is the most common and common one in agricultural planting industry, and it should be precise as transparent mulch film. The main advantage of this kind of mulch is that it is transparent, so it has a good thermal insulation effect, the use of milky mulch is also faster to warm, and there is also a good moisture retention and hydration effect. However, the shortcomings of milky mulch are more obvious, because it is transparent, it is very easy to breed miscellaneous weeds.

And in the spring and summer seasons, because the temperature rises quickly, it is easy to burn young seedlings. The gray-black mulch, as the name suggests, is pure black, and its light transmission is very low, so it can not only effectively prevent the evaporation of water in the soil and maintain soil moisture. And because the sun does not shine in, it can also very well inhibit the growth of miscellaneous weeds. However, gray and black mulch also has shortcomings, such as its opacity, so the soil warming is relatively slow, and the price is more expensive than the milky mulch.
