Plastics have enabled people to turn apparently unproductive land into modern agricultural operations, allowing local subsistence economies to become national economic and social driving forces for a prosperous development. Agriculture, which is increasingly specialized, has a great ally and partner in these plastics, which are increasingly capable of providing a specific response to crop requirements and to the weather, in order to face the challenge of demographic pressure which, according to the FAO will entail over 10 billion people in 2050, requiring over a 60% increase in current...

6 / Armando Alvarez Group WATER 70% of fresh water consumed in the world is used for irrigation for agricultural purposes, and the FAO estimates that demand will increase by 14% by 2030. Using agricultural plastics allows not only (1) to better waterproof the ground and (2) to collect and distribute water without leaks, but also (3) to prevent ground erosion, (4) to ensure that nutrients remain in the ground and (5) to reduce uncontrolled evaporation in crop areas. LIGHT Plants use sunlight to produce carbohydrates from carbon dioxide and water. The lack or low availability of sunlight...

AGRICULTURAL PLASTICS DIVISION / 7 TEMPERATURE By using agricultural plastics the temperature can be modulated depending on the weather conditions and the crop needs: Mulch that blocks radiation (1) prevents the ground from overheating and allows for better rooting, in addition to better nutrient absorption. Diffuse plastics that (2) manage light transmission and allow for day-time temperatures to be lowered. Thermal plastics that (3) retain infrared radiation to prevent extreme temperature fluctuations and thermal stress and guarantee uniformity in crop size. (4) Maintenance of a higher...

MULCH AND MICRO-TUNNEL Mulch and micro-tunnel films are frequently used in modern agriculture in a wide variety of crops, both inside and outside of greenhouses, in all latitudes of the world. The development of new mulching applications taking into consideration opacity, reflection, TIF (Totally Impermeable Film) barrier films, as well as the latest technologies in BIO degradation, provide producers with new solutions to obtain larger and better crops, all while reducing production cost.

FODDER AND GRAIN Fodder silage and grain storage are important for preserving the nutritional properties and product quality over time. Perfect silage can be achieved using pasture, corn, beets, cereals such as wheat, oats or sorghum as forage, and even from the sugar cane and orange processing industries. There are multiple advantages of feeding silage to animals. Among others, reduced supplement costs as it provides a source of roughage with fibre and high-nutritional protein, all to guarantee a higher and more homogeneous milk production. Other applications of fodder fermentation are the...
