Developed and manufactured by SAMCO, the different types of OXO-biodegradable film covering the seed rows are specifically made for rolling out behind SAMCO maize planting machines. The film is strong enough to be pulled through the machine but weak enough to allow the young plants to eventually break through at their correct growth stage.
AERATION UNDER COVER
SAMCO has developed and patented three aeration systems to avoid the overheating of young plants under film.
The SAMCO film is OXO-biodegradable under UV sunlight and through the soil organisms, turning it into CO2 and water. It is possible to have more than 90% film degradation before harvest with the remainder to follow. The selection of film is matched to climatic conditions and crop type for a controlled rate of degradation.
THE FILM IS INTEGRAL TO THE SAMCO SYSTEM OF ENCOURAGING PLANT ESTABLISHMENT AND GROWTH BECAUSE IT:
