MULCHING

Ground cover and mulching; cover to protect plants against weeds

MULCHING:

IN AGRICULTURE, THE DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH OF WEEDS DAMAGES PLANTS BY COMPETING WITH THEM OR PARASITIZING THEM. MULCHING INVOLVES COVERING THE SOIL WITH A LAYER OF MATTER THAT PREVENTS THE GROWTH OF WEEDS.

This technique allows, at the surface root level, maintenance of a higher temperature during cold months and a decrease in the need for watering during hot months.
Mulching is a methodology widely used in the sustainable agricultural practice of permaculture, organic farming and bio-dynamics.
The TENAX anti-weed textile, placed on the ground in the open field and over horticultural beds in greenhouses and tunnels, impedes and prevents the development of algae and weeds. Its permeability, compared to plastic film, allows free exchange of air and water with the soil while retaining moisture that favours the presence of useful micro-organisms for soil fertility.
Attention to the environment and the need for environmentally friendly pest management systems, without the use of chemical herbicides, make the TENAX anti-weed textile the eco-friendly solution.
A wide range of sizes and colours extends application beyond mere plant production to the design and maintenance of the green areas of embankments and slopes, where weed control is difficult and visual impact is important.

GREEN COVER made in Italy

TENAX GREEN COVER IS A POLYPROPYLENE MATTING WITH A VERY DENSE MESH, USABLE FOR OPEN FIELD CULTIVATIONS OR IN GREENHOUSES AND TUNNELS AS A BASE FOR CONTAINERS, POTS AND SEEDLING BOXES, WHICH CAN SIMPLY BE LAID ON THE SURFACE OF THIS AGRO-TEXTILE THAT BLOCKS THE GROWTH OF WEEDS.

With a dense but not impermeable mesh, it protects and insulates roots and prevents the development of weeds, ensuring the quality and hygiene of crops and reducing maintenance needs.
GREEN COVER is available in 4 colours (classic bright green, brown, black and white) to suit any landscape impact need and the colourings are all UV-stabilized to guarantee a long-lasting quality.
The use of 100% virgin raw materials and careful manufacturing make GREEN COVER extremely warp, tear and trample resistant. Fine lines regularly incorporated in the cover help facilitate spatial arrangement and neat alignment of pots and boxes.
The exceptionally robust material is ideal for slopes or embankments to prevent the washing away of soil. It is also perfect for use in flower beds, hedges and paths, especially with the green TENAX colouring that blends in perfectly with the environment.
The white-coloured TENAX GREEN COVER, instead, reflects solar radiation to favour more rapid and uniform ripening of fruit also in their lower portions. The white coloring also limits temperature rises and is therefore particularly suitable for soilless cultures.

WITH A REFLECTIVE FUNCTION, SPECIFICALLY FOR ORCHARDS AND OVERGROUND PLANTS

TENAX GREEN COVER WHITE is a white fabric that is lying on the ground between the rows of fruit trees in order to reflect the sunlight forcing the maturation of the fruit growing on the lower branches of the plant.
Usually shaded by the higher branches, the fruit of the lower branches of the plant - with TENAX GREEN COVER WHITE - takes color and matures naturally more homogeneous.
The harvest is well advanced and optimized in the time because it can be done simultaneously for the high and low parts of the plant, with more satisfactory results. TENAX GREEN COVER WHITE also develops moreover a beneficial effect on the growth itself: it improves the photosynthesis, the vegetative growth and reduces the onset of diseases.
