Conventional & Organic
Weeds … they compete with your crops for moisture, nutrients, light and space. Eliminating them can be costly and labor-intensive. What’s more, neither black plastic nor chemical sprays offer environmentally sound solutions to the problem.
At last, there’s an effective, affordable, environmentally-friendly alternative: WeedGuardPlus. No matter what you grow, or what size area you farm, there’s a WeedGuardPlus product for you.
Saves Time and Money. WeedGuardPlus saves time and money several ways. First, you completely eliminate the removal and disposal costs associated with black plastic. Just till the weed block under at the end of the season and you’re done. Biodegradable WeedGuardPlus adds valuable organic matter back into the soil as it decomposes.
Likewise, you completely eliminate the need for and costs of chemical herbicides or hand weeding.
Finally, unlike black plastic, which requires drip irrigation, porous WeedGuardPlus lets you take advantage of natural rainwater, for even greater savings. Overhead watering is also an option. WeedGuardPlus is specifically formulated to maintain its integrity even when wet, slowly degrading over the course of the growing season.
Healthier Plants. Crops planted with WeedGuardPlus get off to a healthy start without competition from weeds. Early in the season, the material warms the soil, helping plants establish faster.
As the season progresses, porous WeedGuardPlus lets air circulate, promoting healthy roots, instead of “cooking” them like black plastic.
