Ecological vegetable growing with plastics

Ecological vegetable growing with plastics

Plasticulture ( 95): 11-20

Plastics can be used to make vegetable growing ecologically more sound. Low tunnels and direct covers protect plants from adverse weather conditions and so increase their resistance to attack. Mulching eliminates use of herbicides and helps to control the washout of nitrates and other fertilizers. Anti-insect screens permit the reduction or elimination of insecticides.
