The reflective properties of aluminum faced plastic have been shown to organically control several species of insects. By using this mulch, a grower would be able to harvest quality, marketable fruit and vegetables.

Eco-Light solar reflective mulch allows for:

  • Redistribution of sunlight
  • Overall increase in natural ripe fruit colour
  • Reduction of weed competition
  • Increase in photosynthesis and thereby increased sugar content
  • Helping moderate ground temperature
  • Uniform ripening which means less frequent picking throughout the orchard
  • Increased crop value when bringing fruit to market
  • Additional use by allowing covered bins to keep cooler longer
