    Better soil, higher yield and more taste for tomatoes

    With ecovio® M 2351, BASF offers a certified soil-biodegradable plastic for mulch films consisting of the biodegradable co-polyester polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT) ecoflex® and other biodegradable polymers made from renewable raw materials. Mulch films made of ecovio® M 2351 can be ploughed into the soil after mechanical harvest as naturally occurring micro-organisms in the soil recognize the structure of the film as food they can metabolize. When growing tomatoes, mulch films made of ecovio® can lead to an increased yield from 15 to 50 percent, less water consumption and a better weed control with less herbicides compared to bare-soil farming.
