Webinar Episode 8
We invite you to watch this webinar about “Beyond the color of mulch” presented by our in-house expert in mulch, Javier Pery.
How can you efficiently manage solar ☀radiation with the different mulch colors? We tell you about it in this webinar, “Beyond the color of Mulch”
We present two different case studies, one of them in a strawberry crop🍓, to demonstrate that the choice of color and selection of the exposed surface of the mulch is a critical decision that can cause a wide range of results on the crops from the most beneficial to the greatest of failures.
With these case studies, one of them in a strawberry crop in Peru, it is shown that the choice of color and selection of the exposed surface of the mulch is a critical decision that can cause a wide range of results in crops, from most beneficial even the biggest failures.
