The sustainable and biodegradable solution for agricultural mulching.
Smurfit Kappa have developed a revolutionary new paper to replace Polythene. Made from long pine fibres from sustainably managed forests in Northern Spain, AgroPaper™ enables efficient and eco-friendly mulching. It prevents weed growth but does not need to be removed after harvest as it is fully compostable and can be laid with existing machinery.
AgroPaper™ is fully compostable according to EN13432 with optimal temperature control so that it does not overheat the crop like the polythene. There are lower handling costs as the paper is fully compostable, creating organic material for the benefit of the ground.
Our collaboration with a well-know Agricultural Institute (INTIA) allows us to guarantee the performance of AgroPaper™
AgroPaper is currently financially supported by the European Union's LIFE programme to carry out the project Towards to zero plastic soil management agricultural practices - LIFE AgroPaper® (LIFE 19 ENV/ES/000404).
