Effect of solarization on soil thermal regime in a plastic greenhouse

Effect of solarization on soil thermal regime in a plastic greenhouse

Ciencia Rural 24(2): 229-233

Plots 6 m by 4 m in a 10 m by 25 m plastic greenhouse were covered with 100 mu m thick transparent polyethylene sheets from 12 December 1992 to 7 March 1993 in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil. Plastic mulching increased soil temperature by 11.9, 10.8, 9.8 and 8.6 degrees C over the control at the 2, 5, 10 and 20 cm depth, respectively.
