Soil Management

Adequate water and nutrition is essential for increasing yields in agriculture. Good results come not just from planting and fertilizing, but by paying close attention to plants’ needs. One of those needs is balancing plant nutrition.

With the aid of agricultural plastics, growers can secure and significantly increase produced output per hectare while enhancing crop quality. The wide range of plasticulture applications includes greenhouse, mulch and silage stretch films, silage sheets, drip irrigation pipes, nettings, nonwovens and many more.
