Installation Tips:

  • Prepare soil well - It should be smooth and friable
  • Do not lay paper on dry soil - Beds should be firm
  • To prevent tearing, adjust wheels on plastic laying machine so that they do not stretch the paper
  • Reduce speed of tractor when laying paper
  • Paper should be in close contact with the soil for maximum heat transfer into the soil
  • Paper is more fragile than plastic; therefore when making holes through the paper with a bulb setter, a quick, sharp jab reduces tearing
  • Also, when the paper is in contact with a firm, flat soil surface, there is less risk of tearing at planting
  • Do not walk on the paper

Crops that are suited for Planters Paper:

  • Vegetables - Warm season and cool season transplant crops and direct seeded crops that are seeded in hills (e.g. cucumbers and squash)
  • Cut flowers
  • Use on a trial basis with any crop where black plastic mulch is used
