Product Description

Red Plastic Mulch is primarily used on tomatoes for an early harvest. According to researchers at Cornell and Clemson universities, when tomatoes are grown on red mulch they have higher yields, stronger stems and ripen earlier. Research has also found that red mulch reduces nematode damage. The plant responds to the high proportion of reflected far-red from the red mulch by growing taller and putting out more leaves. Eggplant have also shown increased yields when grown on red. It is the color of the mulch that changes the intensity of certain wave lengths of light that in turn has an impact on plant growth and subsequent yields. Studies by Penn State University show tomato yields have been as much as 20% higher with red plastic mulch than with black. Red mulch reflects intensified red light to the developing plants which increases their photosynthetic capacity. There is more reflectivity early in the season when more of the mulch is exposed to light. This red plastic mulch is made of high quality, durable plastic that is 1.0 mil thick and lays well over flat or raised beds. It has season-long integrity and is easily removed from the field after harvest.

The tomatoes did grow fast. However, the WEEDS grew faster underneath the cloth. Had to pull up the entire cloth to weed the garden. I have pictures demonstrating how FAST the color FADES and the weeds pushing up UNDER the cloth.

When I received this I was horribly disappointed. The product is nowhere near the quality of what is in the picture. It's so thin you can literally see through it and is not shiny at all. Basically the material looks like an extremely thin disposable tablecloth. Do not waste your money!

What is pictured appears much thicker than the product I received. 1 mil thick plastic is like tissue paper. Yes the description states 1 mil but that picture sure looks heavier. Beware, working with 1 mil plastic is a major hassle. The slightest breeze and it's aloft. I have used this product before. I have gotten 2 seasons out of it. Always a hassle but looks great when it's down. A real hassle to cut too. The weeds DO grow heavy below this plastic. Virutally impossible to determine if red is better than black. Not sure why I keep coming back to this product. Did I mention this stuff is a hassle to work with...

I bought this red mulch expecting 4 ft x 50 ft roll. What I got was a "piece" of 50 ft plastic torn from a larger roll. Working with this mess will be difficult at best. It will be very difficult to keep the tension on the plastic since it is not rolled on a core. Do not buy this!

I use red mulch film for single stemmed tomatoes, determinant bush patio and container dwarf tomatoes. I experience more prolific growth and harvest. Mulch film is only a part of meeting tomato optimum growth potential, but is certainly a permanent part of my gardening repertoire.

Water doesn't flow through, I had to rip it out to get water to my tomato plants which have an extensive root system. Disappointed.
