SAINT-REMI, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - April 3, 2014) - Dubois Agrinovation, now recognized in North America as a pioneer within the agricultural industry with its new Bio360, sets the benchmark for cornstarch-based biodegradable and compostable mulch.
In vegetable production, using the Bio360 is a smart and responsible way to help improve the environment. Indeed, it is an innovative, eco-friendly solution to the drawbacks of using petroleum-based plastic mulch films.
Over 100 million pounds of plastic mulch waste is produced each year in North America. They partly end up in landfills for more than 400 years or are sometimes burned at the farm.
This biodegradable and compostable mulch appeared in 2005 and was first imported from Italy, but it has been made in North America since 2013. With the latest modern technologies, we can now offer the Bio360 with previously unequalled consistency and quality.
A wide range of thicknesses, sizes, and colours are now available, and promptly, to meet our customers' various needs.
The Bio360's degradation is primarily the work of microorganisms in the soil and not sun rays like most other biodegradable mulch films on the market. The Bio360's degradation, consistent year after year, with no toxic residue, ensures client satisfaction.
The cost of removing traditional plastic mulch films increases every year. We are convinced that the Bio360 is economically viable for vegetable growers. Your workers are much more needed for operations directly related to profitability than picking up plastic film.
