CAN-GROW textured mulch films are used in horticultural production to suppress
weeds, control soil temperature, retain soil moisture, reduce fertilizer leaching,
decrease soil compaction and improve crop quality and yields.
CAN-GROW mulches are available in standard low-density polyethylene (LD)
or advanced eXtra Strong Blend (XSB) quality.
All CAN-GROW mulches have proven to be easy laying, while providing an excellent tight bed fit
and season long stability for easy removal in one piece.
What separates XSB from LD materials is a larger crystalline structure resulting
in the increased strength and weatherability of the films. XSB blown films are as
strong as a common cast LD films, yet 30% thinner and lighter.
Thickness of a film does not affect the benefits of mulching.
Since tarps are sold by weight, lighter and stronger CAN-GROW XSB
films in 0.6 - 0.9 mil offer a cost-effective alternative to CAN-GROW LD
films in 0.9 - 1.25 mil
– to reduce plastic mulch use/cost per acre
– to speed up laying operation - more XSB footage fit on roll of equal weight
– to reduce plastic waste disposal costs
