NATURAL WEED MAT / PALM FIBRE MAT (50 CM)

 

Advantages of Palm Fibre Mat for Weed Control & Mulching

 

  • Reduces labor cost, i.e. weeding and up keeping of plants
  • Reduction on fertilizers, i.e. more efficient utilization of fertilizer. Fertilizer concentration on mats and gradual release into soil improves optimal absorption for plants. Losses of fertilizer in the surrounding areas away from plants are minimized.
  • Reduction of transportation effort and cost as the mats are easy to handle, i.e. compact and lighter.
  • Reduction in chemical usage, e.g. weed - killers and insecticides for beetles, etc.
  • Health and safety of staff are not unnecessarily compromised as there is less need to handle weed - killers that can endanger their health and well - being.
  • Easier recovery of loose fruits on the mats.

 

Palm Fibre Mat is a 100% organic fibre, from a renewable source - Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB). Hard and strong, it can be spun and woven into matting. They also have the right strength and durability to protect the slopes from erosion, while allowing vegetation to flourish. They can dissipate the energy of flowing water and absorb the excess solar radiation.

Mulching is a method for soil conditioning. It helps with moisture retention in the soil, thereby enhancing its quality for healthier plant growth particularly in hot countries with long periods of dry weather. In addition, it retards growth of undesirable weeds, detrimental to plants.

 

Traditionally, various materials have been utilized for mulching. These include empty fruit bunches (EFB) from oil palm, wood chippings, plastic mats etc. Palm Fibre Mat is made from oil palm fibres. The nature of it allows for free flow of water through to the ground whilst also acting as a protective layer.
