Growing Starch-Based Mulch Film Use Strengthening Biodegradable Mulch Film Sector

Thu, 07/11/2019 - 16:39

@navdeep wrote:

Due to the unavailability of traditional film-forming resins, starch is widely used as a raw material for biodegradable mulch films. The heavy consumption of these starch-based mulch films is predicted to contribute considerably to the growth of the biodegradable mulch film sector, as starch is cost-effective and available in significant amounts as compared to other raw materials, such as polylactic acid and polyhydroxyalkanoate.

Besides, benefits including maintenance of soil structure, weed control, and protection of crops from soil contamination, are highly acknowledged by end users. Moreover, farmers are rapidly shifting their focus toward the adoption of starch-based films, because the usage of inorganic mulch films leads to rising environmental concerns.

If someone can help me in consulting and project report also it will help, planning to do only organic way and drip.

What Constitute "Good Ploughing"?

Wed, 07/03/2019 - 17:45

@shakib_tsouli wrote:

Hello Everyone,

My name is Shakib, I’m a final year Masters student (In Environmental Science).

The reason I’m interested in this is that my thesis is actually centered on increasing Yield returns for Smallholder farmers & the first section is about what constitutes “Good plowing”, I am especially interested in finding a way to measure soil quality right after plowing.

Since I just started reading about the subject, I wanted to hear some domain expertise so that I base my research direction off of it.

So, If you had to measure the quality of your plowed small farm, what attributes would you use?

Any Information, Hints or Opinions are highly appreciated.

Thank you.
