Greenhouse and Agriculture Films
Greenhouse Coverings

Greenhouse coverings of which lifetime is long, which have high mechanic resistance, thermal and refraction characteristics will the priority of the manufacturers all the time. Along with this presumption, it has been developing successful applications in each day with the experience it has in greenhouse covering production. According to the changing technology, working for the development of “crop-made” plastic coverings is one of the main business branches of R&D department of Vatan Plastik.

 Vatan Plastics Greenhouse coverings;
– Increase the efficiency of light.
– Decrease heat loss during night and so prevent cooling.
– Ensure to provide early crops between 12 and 20 days.
– Prevent the plant to be burnt during hot and sunny weathers since it refracts the sunlight.
– Ensure sunlight to spread within the greenhouse in homogeneous way.
– Gain temperature difference between 4°C ~ 5°C.
– Prevent frost damages.
– Increase flexibility thanks to its EVA additive and so provides long-term endurance.
– Overcome the slowly growing-up problem which is caused by embowering of the close plants for each other.
– Decrease the usage of embowering materials during summer months.

GREENHOUSE FILM VARIETIES

Greenhouse Films

PE Film can be used in many areas

  • In construction industry;protection of materials.
  • In paint industry; in protection of the ground.
  • In bad weather condition; as cover.
  • In agriculture fields.

Solarization Film

Solarization; is heating of the moist and not cultivated soil with the solar energy by covering over with the thin polyethylene film (Solarization film).

The aim of this application is to weaken or eliminate the disease factors, weeds and nematodes harmful to plants in the soil.

Application Method

  • Solarization should be applied in summer months, in the longest period of the daylight and in the moments the temperature is the highest.
  • The soil must be kept moist constantly.
  • The surface of the soil must be covered with the solarization film and edges of the film must be secured.
  • 70oC – 80oC heat is generated with the effects of the Sunlight and moisture. This application should be kept about 6 weeks on the surface of the soil. (In some diseases this period lasts for 10 weeks)
  • At the end of the application the soil is being sterilized partially.

The Benefits of the application

  • Drugs savings.
  • Economic for the application of the solarization.
  • Soil structure is maintained.
  • It is a heat and gas barrier, restricts gas transfer out of the film from the soil.
  • It is an environmental application.

Nematode Film

Nematodes generally live in the soil, water and in the decaying organic matters. Many kinds of them feed in different parts of the plants and they are harmful for them.

The plant parasitic nematodes are in 0,2mm – 5mm length and they are microscopic organisms. It is difficult and exhausting to detect them in the environment they are living. Therefore, less work has been done on these organisms comparing with the insects and animal pests.

Nematodes are generally colorless and transparent. They are moved with rain and irrigation waters, wing, infected plant debris, infected soil parts adhering to the feet of people and animals, soil-working tools, infected vegetable feedlings, fruit tillers, bulbous plants and plant seeds.

At the plants damaged from nematodes the other microorganisms causes of the diseases (bacterial, fungi and viruses) activities gets easy and generally another disease will be seen together with the damage of the nematodes.

Nematode Film: with the additive added into solarisation film

* Advantage in the fight against nematodes.
* It ensures 2oC to 3oC heat increase compared with the normal plastics. Therefore it increases the solarisation effect significantly.
*Nematode is performed in a shorter time compared with the normal film.
* It is significantly effective against certain fungal pathogens (Sclerotinia, Phytopthra, Rhizoktonia, Fusarium, etc).

Black Mulch Film

Prevent the growth of the weeds.

Reduces the labor costs significantly.

Prevent the soil form drying and forming cream.

Economic in terms of water usage.

Maintains the vitality of the soil (shadow anneal)

The heat of the soil became homogenous.

Transparent Mulch Film

Is heats the soil since it passes the rays of the sun to the soil directly.

It affects the growth of the plants positively, especially in winter months.

It is recommended at the places not having the weeds problem.

It is recommended for the winter months.

The black mulches are more suitable for summer months.

Insect Repellent Mulch Film

Top layer silver bottom layer black color mulch film.

Insects cannot approach when it is laid out.

Saves the products from the harmful pests.

Prevents the weed growth.

Increases the yield.

Insect Trap Mulch Film

Top layer yellow bottom layer black color mulch film.

Collects the insects at the plants on the film when it is laid out, disinfection is done only there.

The other plants does not contact with the pesticide.

Saves the pesticides.

Prevents the weed growth.

Increases the yield.

They are elastic and endurable films which can be produced in black or black and green colors. It is used for feeds to endure for a long time without being exposed to sun lights in the facilities where silage silos are realized as mass. It can be produced as reinforced for 12, 24 or 36 months.

Thermal Curtain

It is used as a secondary covering within the greenhouse to protect the internal heat of the greenhouse during winter or old regions. It is laid on the bottom part of the greenhouse covering to protect the internal heat of the greenhouse. It prevents the plant from any damage caused by the excessive cold and ensures the continuance of its development. It is produced as 12 Months and 24 Months.

Film for Pool Application

It is used for supplying water needed for the plants by laying inside the pools in the regions having the water problem.

We have the plastics at the width of 16 mt when it is opened.

It can be produced in different thickness and color.

Vegetable Bag

Vegetable bags are produced in thickness of 20-50 microns in transparent color and with holes and as reinforced (antifog) upon demand. It is used during the packaging of vegetables (cucumber, carrot, eggplant) and fruits such as banana before the shipment.

It is used to make pickled feed in stock farming. It ensures 70% of saving out of the feed expenses bearing cost in stock farming. Since it is UV-reinforced, its usage duration is pretty long.

It is produced by 5-layer-cast technology. It is air and moisture resistant. It is UV protective for all seasons. Waterproof plastic bobbin is suitable for all winding machines. It is 100% recyclable. It is produced in green, white and black colors.
