Reflective Ground Mulch

Reflective Ground Mulch

Reflective Ground Mulch or Reflective Ground Cover is a shiny bright white/silver plastic cover for improving canopy light relation,
which are made to improve fruit quality including fruit coloration and sugar content,
thus improving fruit yield and quality.

It is developed to cover the entire orchard floor and not just the area immediately below the trees, which maximizes the amount of light that can be reflected back into the trees.

  • Improved blush color, fruit sizes, and fruit sets
  • Increased Brix levels can lead to better-tasting fruits
  • Offers control over flying pests and reduces weed growth
  • Accelerates fruit maturity approaching harvest
  • Available size
    • 2.70x100m or as request


Reflective ground Mulch or reflective ground Cover is a type of agro-protective textile.
It is a reflective fabric that reflects light on the plants, mainly targeting the underside of the canopy.
As the name suggests, it is a reflective ground film, meaning that this film is applied on the ground of your orchard.

Thanks to an innovative weaving process, EyouAgro Reflective Ground Cover has acquired a unique feature.
we can freely combine the number of aluminum strips and white film strips to obtain a 33%, 50%, 66%, or even 100% reflective screen.
This allows us to meet the needs of different fruits for different light reflections.

It has been widely applied in different fruits, including apples, pears, kiwifruit, cherries, and strawberries, especially cherry plums.
Usually, it is applied before the harvest time because light also has an effect on fruit shelf life.

In horticulture, Reflective ground mulch appears to offer an effective technique.
It improves the fruit’s quality, particularly its color, which is the main external quality parameter for consumer preference and fruit trade,
as well as the size and internal quality of the fruit, such as soluble solids content.

When to Use the Reflective Ground Covers?

For coloring, these Ground Covers are used a few weeks before harvest, usually in late summer or early autumn, depending on the cultivar.

  • For Royal Gala Cultivars: It’s best to deploy reflective film in late summer, aligning with the fruit’s critical ripening phase to maximize color development.
  • For Fuji Cultivars: Early autumn application is recommended, catering to this variety’s unique ripening schedule and coloration needs.
  • For Cherry Plums: Given their early ripening schedule, introducing reflective ground covers just as the fruits begin their color transition, typically in mid to late summer, can significantly enhance their vibrant hues and overall market appeal.

The color response is usually quite rapid, with visible results within 2 weeks of application.
