The term plasticulture refers to the practice of using plastic materials in agricultural applications. The   plastic   materials   themselves   are   often   and   broadly   referred   to   as   "ag   plastics."   Plasticulture   ag   plastics   include soil   fumigation   film,   irrigation   drip   tape/tubing,   nursery   pots   and   silage   bags,   but   the   term   is   most   often   used   to describe   all   kinds   of   plastic   plant/soil   coverings.   Such   coverings   range   from   plastic   mulch   film,   row   coverings,   high   and low tunnels (polytunnels), to plastic greenhouses. Polyethylene   (PE)   is   the   plastic   film   used   by   the   majority   of   growers   because   of   its   affordability,   flexibility   and easy   manufacturing.   It   comes   in   a   variety   of   thicknesses,   such   as   a   low   density   form   (LDPE)   as   well   as   a linear   low   density   form   (LLDPE).   These   can   be   modified   by   addition   of   certain   elements   to   the   plastic   that   give   it properties   beneficial   to   plant   growth   such   as   reduced   water   loss,   UV   stabilization   to   cool   soil   and   prevent   insects, elimination   of   Photosynthetically   active   radiation   to   prevent   weed   growth,   IR   opacity,   antidrip/antifog,   and   fluorescent films. A   Greenhouse   is   a   large   structure   in   which   it   is   possible   to   stand   and   work   with   automated   ventilation.   High   tunnels are   hoop   houses,   manually   ventilated   by   rolling   up   the   sides.   Greenhouse   and   high   tunnel   films   are   usually   within   the parameters   of   80-220μm   thick   and   20m   wide,   and   have   a   life   span   between   6–45   months   dependant   on   several factors.   Monolayer   polyethylene   films   are   better   suited   for   less   extreme   environmental   conditions,   while   multilayer covers   made   of   three   layers,   one   EVA19   layer   inserted   between   two   low-density   polyethylene   layers   has   been   shown to have a better performance under harsh conditions. Mulching   is   when   a   thin   plastic   film   is   placed   over   the   ground,   poking   holes   at   regular   intervals   for   seeds   to be   planted   in,   or   placing   it   directly   over   plants   in   the   beginning   stages   of   growth.   The   films   remain   in   place for   the   duration   of   the   cultivation   (usually   2–4   months)   and   usually   have   a   thickness   of   12-80μm.    The   main functions   of   plastic   mulch   are   to   insulate   and   maintain   a   consistent   temperature   and   humidity   of   the   soil,   preventing evaporation   of   moisture   from   the   soil,   minimization   of   seedtime   and   harvest,   prevent   weed   growth,   and   to   prevent erosion. Pigmented or colourless films can be used, each with specific advantages and disadvantages over the other.

Black   films   prevent   weed   growth,   but   do   not   transmit   light   to   heat   up   the   soil;   clear   films   transmit light   and   heat   the   soil,   but   promote   weed   growth.    Photosensitive   films   have   been   developed   that   are pigmented to prevent weed growth, but still transmit light to heat the soil. These   photosensitive   films   are   more   costly   than   either   the   clear   or   black   polyethylene   sheeting.   In   a   study using   okra,   the   total   yield   of   the   okra   and   fruit   number   was   two   times   more   when   using   plastic   mulching than   without   mulching. They   found   that   black   plastic   mulch   controls   evaporation   from   the   soil,   improves   soil water   retention.   Plastic   mulching   proved   to   reduce   irrigation   requirements   in   pepper   by   14-29%   because   of elimination of soil evaporation. Flowering   time   was   also   reduced   in   okra   when   black   plastic   mulch   was   used;   the   plants   reached 50%   flowering   3–6   days   earlier   than   un-mulched   plots.   Plant   height   in   okra   was   significantly   increased with   black   plastic   mulch   use   compared   to   those   grown   in   bare   soil.   Evaporation   from   soil   accounts   for   25- 50%   of   water   used   in   irrigation,   using   plastic   mulch   prevents   much   of   this   evaporation   and   thus   reduces the   amount   of   water   needed   to   grow   the   crop.   This   conservation   of   water   makes   plastic   mulch   favourable for farmers in dry and arid climates where water is a limited resource.

Volatile   Corrosion   Inhibitors   (VCIs,   sometimes   referred   to   as   vapor   corrosion   inhibitors)   provide   excellent protection   for   metal   surfaces   and   can   prevent   rust   &   corrosion   for   many   years.   VCIs   are   chemicals   used directly on the product that needs to be protected. Elastic   LTD’s   VCI   films   offer   barrier   packaging   with   effective   corrosion   protection   allowing   for   safe,   clean,   and   easy packaging   of   metal   parts,   machinery   and   equipment.   These   materials   can   be   ordered   as   rolls,   tubing,   sheets   and bags. VCI PROTECTION IS A FUNCTION OF: Which Metals are in need of protection. Corrosion inhibiting chemicals used and their effectiveness on the metals. Ratio of chemicals in the formulation. Amount of VCI on the paper or in the film pH of the finished product. Water solubility and the effectiveness of the corrosion inhibitor in the presence of moisture and/or high humidity.
