Solar Plastic Mulch
Olive mulch is a cross between black and clear plastic mulch. This combination blocks PAR light that weeds would use for growth while still providing excellent soil warming abilities. It allows some light energy in which acts like a mini greenhouse around plant roots. Olive mulch also helps to retain soil moisture and results in improved growth and yield potential. It has been found that Solar mulch heats the soil almost as much as clear mulch but blocks as much weeds as black mulch.
