This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. A Guide to the Manufacture, Performance, and Potential of Plastics in Agriculture explores the use of polyethylene, polypropylene films, and similar products in all aspects of agricultural production. The International Association for Plastics in Agriculture and the American Society for Plasticulture are two organizations that have represented researchers and extension specialists conducting agricultural plastic research. With climate change entrenched around the globe, plasticulture use in plant and animal production will neutralize many of the stress events encountered on a daily basis around the world. Many of the early researchers that conducted field research in the use of plastics in agriculture have either retired or are deceased. These early pioneers in plasticulture research-the basis of plant production using plastics-were very creative and persistent in discovering uses of plastics in agricultural applications. Discusses plasticulture, the basis of plant production using plastics, including topics such as plastic mulch, row covers, drip irrigation, and high/low tunnels Contains 10 chapters that cover the process of producing polyethylene and polypropylene plastics that are used in agriculture Covers the many uses of plastics in all aspects of agriculture, including plastic greenhouses, rigid mold plastics, disposal of plastics, and plastics in animal production
