Weed control fabric – agricultural tarpaulin

  • Material: weed control fabric is manufactured from 100% Polyester.

So what is Polyester: Polyester  is a group of polymers that contain ester functional groups in each link of the main chain. There are four basic types of polyester yarn: filament, staple, roving, and fiber fill.

Polyester is widely used in the industry to produce all kinds of products such as clothing, household furniture, industrial fabrics, insulating materials, cushions, etc. Polyester fiber has many advantages when compared to other types. Traditional fibers are not hygroscopic, but absorb oil.

It is these properties that make Polyester a perfect product for waterproof, dustproof and fireproof applications. Polyester’s low absorbency makes it naturally resistant to stains. Polyester fabric does not shrink when washed, wrinkle resistant and stretch resistant. It is also easily stained and is not damaged by mildew. Polyester fabric is an effective insulation material, so it is used to produce pillows, blankets, cushions, outerwear and sleeping bags…



– Limiting harmful insects:

The black color of the tarpaulin has the effect of reflecting sunlight, so it provides more light and repels aphids, creek compensation (insects that transmit the virus causing curling buds), leafhoppers.

– Limit disease:

The tarpaulin isolates pathogens that attack from the soil or from the straw to the plants, the tarpaulin surface dries quickly after rain, the leaves are always dry, so the disease is limited.

Weed control:

The tarpaulin has a black side that blocks sunlight, causing the grass seeds to die in the tarpaulin. There is no need to weed on the lawn during the time the vegetables are in the field.

– Regulate soil moisture and keep soil structure:

The tarpaulin prevents evaporation, retains moisture well, and helps in watering.

– Keep fertilizer:

The tarpaulin prevents the evaporation of nitrogenous fertilizers (Urea) and the leaching of fertilizers during watering or heavy rain. The absorption of nutrients N, P, K, Ca, Mg from the roots of plants using mulch is 1.4-1.5 times higher than that of bare ground (no mulch). fertilizer used for vegetables more effective.

Limiting alum, salty:

The use of alum and saline soils using mulch will be reduced because the mulch reduces evaporation through the alum soil, and the salinity is kept in the deep soil layer, helping the roots work better, and crop yields increase.

– Increase soil temperature:

Tarpaulin keeps the ground warm at night, especially in the cold season or when it rains heavily without sunlight, the ground is cold, the roots are poorly developed; Mulch helps maintain soil temperature, stable root development, healthy plant growth.

– Restrict mouse:

The smooth and smooth canvas surface is not convenient for rats to crawl in, so vegetable products are less damaged at the fruit-harvesting stage such as tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers if planted with a tall trellis.

– Increase product value:

Because the tarpaulin provides more light for the tree, helps the color of the fruit skin to be beautiful, the fruit does not come into contact with the ground, so it is clean, sells for a higher price, and the rate of fruit rejection is reduced.


– The initial cost is a bit high, although the profit is quite attractive.
