Advantages of Palm Fibre Mat for Mulching
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.
