    Greetings from Germany. Very impressive results. Are there any other benefits if you combine drip irrigation with mulch film ?

      Hi Dirk,
      Yes, there are some benefits:
      • Better weed control.
      • By using the mulch we can create a warmer micro climate, and by that we can prepone planting/ seeding.
      • Certain mulches can reflect back the sun radiation, in a selective way that will drive insects away.
