Title of Technology 

Process Know-How for the Development of Bio-degradable Lignocellulosic Fibre-based Mulching Mats and Sheets for Modern Farming

Executive Summary

Mulching is a covering, usually made of petroleum-based plastics, spread on the ground around plants to prevent excessive evaporation or erosion, inhibit weed growth, enrich the soil, support drip-irrigation, etc. Process know-how for the fabrication of thinner, flexible and rollable lignocellulosic fibre-based mulching mats using bio-based polymer binder for better crop growth. These mulching mats are biodegradable and eco-friendly substitute to single-use plastic mulching films. A pilot-scale facility for the demonstration and fabrication of biodegradable mulching mats and sheets is available
