TerraFilm Pro is 100% biodegradable - no composting or costly clean up required. Over time, plowing TerraFilm Pro into your fields at the end of the season can even improve the quality of your soil.
Plastic mulch films are increasingly popular among farmers because they are proven to improve crop yields by maintaining soil moisture content, regulating soil temperature, and preventing the growth of weeds. However, a major pain for our farmers is that they have to remove these plastic films and dispose of them, costing them precious time and money every year. In addition, without any nationwide effort to manage the plastic mulch film waste, the majority of this plastic ends up in landfills. This can amount to 8 tons of plastic waste for every 100 acres of farmland and there are over 2,000,000 acres of farmland in the US that use these plastic mulch films! This can have devastating effects on the environment.
The solution to help farmers maintain higher yields and improve the quality of their soils is the TerraFilm Pro. This product uses the same biodegradable plastic materials as our TerraFilm and TerraPotta products, but are developed to satisfy the needs of large farming operations. The TerraFilm Pro product will be offered in various flavors that will degrade in 6 months or 12 months, allowing farmers to grow multiple times a year.
Our TerraFilm and TerraPotta products are a cost-effective, environmentally-responsible way to keep your garden lush and free from harmful waste.
Do you love gardening, but hate the amount of time you spend weeding instead of growing awesome food or flowers? Our TerraFilm biodegradable mulch films are perfect for helping home gardeners grow more fruits, vegetables, and flowers by maintaining soil moisture content, regulating soil temperature, and preventing the growth of weeds. TerraFilm is useful for all farming methods, from raised beds to conventional rows, and is easy to use!
The rest of the market is mostly made from oil-based plastics, which have to be removed from the soil every year. So where does this plastic end up? Unfortunately, most of it goes to landfills! The remaining plastic may even be burned, releasing hazardous materials and greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. Good news is that TerraFilm products are made from a natural waste product from the paper and pulp industry, giving our product the ability to degrade into the soil. This saves every gardener the pain of removing their mulch films and finding safe routes to disposal. On top of all of this, our degrading mulch material will even improve the quality of the soil by providing more stability and body!
This product uses the same biodegradable plastic material as TerraFilm. Instead of throwing away plastic trays, flats, and pots after each growing season, our TerraPotta products can be planted in the soil. In addition, you will never hurt your plants by pulling them out of a plastic pot and harming their crucial root structures. All of these TerraPotta products can be planted directly with the plants inside them and will degrade during each growing season. Additionally and similar to TerraFilm, they will improve the structure and stability of the soil, helping your plants reach their full potential!
Other products in the market advertise their products as “compostable.” What this really means is that their products do not degrade under normal conditions and require industrial composting facilities to adequately break down. If these “compostable” pots are planted directly into the soil, they can remain intact for years. Our TerraPotta trays, flats, and pots are biodegradable, which means they break down completely in natural soil conditions.
In the future, we plan on incorporating organic fertilizers and nutrients into our TerraPotta products, which will further improve the benefits of our products to the home gardener!
