100% TUV-Certified Soil Biodegradable Mulch Film

Organix A.G. Film is the only TUV-Certified Soil Biodegradable Mulch Film custom-manufactured in the U.S. to meet your performance, labor, and environmental needs.

In North America, manufacturers are not required to test their mulch film for soil biodegradability. We disagree, and feel you deserve to know what’s entering your soil. Organix A.G. Film was long-researched and developed in order to perform the same as regular plastic throughout crop production, but ensure complete soil biodegradation after harvest.

The Problem: Plastic Use and Removal

Removal expenses: disposal fees and labor costs
Not recyclable
Research shows plastic remnants in soil can decrease yields up to 8%
Removal equipment burnout
Loss of valuable topsoil
Increased greenhouse gas emissions

The Solution: Organix A.G. Film

Organix A.G. Film is a sustainably-engineered solution for growers in need of a high-performance mulch film that continues to protect and support crops while eliminating the need for plastic-use and its associated time, labor, and costs for removal. Our TUV-Certified Soil Biodegradable Mulch Film is custom-manufactured to meet your specific production needs and ensure complete soil biodegradability. We take into consideration your climate, soil-type, crop, and length of growth cycle before deciding on a mil thickness and film recipe. Upon harvest, Organix A.G. Film is proven to soil biodegrade into organic content: biomass, water, and CO2.

Why Organix A.G. Film? We continue to raise standards.

High Performance

Performance characteristics are proven to match those of traditional plastic:

  • Reduce weed, disease and insect pressure
  • Enhance moisture control
  • Increase soil temperature
  • Support an ideal microclimate for the growth of various crops
  • Compatible with conventional mulch layers and irrigation equipment
  • Great tensile strength
  • Easily operable for seeding and planting

TUV-Certified

We have TUV-Certification for Soil Biodegradability on both our biopolymer resin and the manufactured film product. This certification tests for 2 important factors 1) the film completely soil biodegrades and 2) introduces no levels of eco-toxicity, pesticides, contaminants, or manipulation in the soil.

Available Across North America

Available for ordering either direct with Organix Solutions or through one of our many regional and local North American distributor partners.

Peer-Reviewed

Undergone 3rd party, peer-reviewed, multi-year university research trials funded by the USDA in order to examine how Organix A.G. Film compares to other mulch films, including others claiming biodegradability.

Custom-Manufactured

Each order of Organix A.G. Film is custom- manufactured to meet the demands of your specific operation. We offer Black, White-on-Black, and Transparent film colors, and produce a wide range of widths and lengths for you to choose from. We also offer film additives such as UV protection, which is considered after assessing your crop, soil-type, climate conditions, and desired length of growing season.

Free From Plastic

Contains NO polyethylene or plastic additives whatsoever. This film is a COMPLETE biopolymer product.

Made in the U.S.A. on Plastic-Free Equipment

Manufactured in the U.S. to streamline shipping processes and decrease costs associated therein. Our film is blown on equipment used for biopolymers-ONLY, meaning no risk of cross- contamination with regular plastics.

Outstanding Storage Properties

Storage properties allow for you to utilize the film the year after purchase if unused in the originally- desired season.

How does Organix A.G. Film differ from other “bio-mulches”?

A TUV-Certified soil biodegradable product is made from 100% biopolymer materials that can be completely eaten by microbes in the soil and digested as natural content. TUV also proves the product leaves no traces of contamination or new pathogens. Once Organix A.G. Film soil biodegrades, it assimilates into the soil as organic matter: biomass, water, and CO2.

Compostable products have not been tested for natural soil biodegradability. The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) recognizes Certified Compostable Products as those who’ve pass lab testing through commercial or municipal composting. This does not include the decomposition of products used in agricultural practices such as mulch film. It also does not measure for toxicity in the soil after decomposition.

Products labeled “degradable” or “oxo-degradable” or “partially degradable” do not meet any standards for soil biodegradability or compostability, and instead, contribute to micro-plastic pollution in one’s soil. TheNewPlasticsEconomy.org and Ellen MacArthur Foundation support a worldwide ban on oxo-degradable plastics, stating, “Oxo-degradable plastics are being produced and sold in many countries, with society being led to believe that they completely biodegrade in the environment within relatively short timescales…compelling evidence suggests that oxo-degradable plastics take longer than claimed to degrade and that they fragment into small pieces which contribute to microplastics pollution.”
