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

Description

Reflective ground Mulch or reflective ground Cover is a type of agro-protective textile. It is a reflective fabric that reflects light to 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 50%, 75%, 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. Usually, it is applied prior to 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 quality of fruit, particularly the color of the fruit, 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.

Benefits:

  • Enhances the Percentage of ‘Excellent Quality’ Fruits
  • Reduces Time to Harvest
  • Fruits Store Bette and Improve with Storage
  • An Easy and Simple Process

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 cultivars such as Royal Gala, it is best to use reflective film in late summer.
  • For cultivars such as Fuji,  it is recommended to use them in early autumn.

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