How to do mulching in Siberia
However, not everything is going smoothly. The film is often torn, and weeds burst into the light. It all depends on its thickness and the amount of light-stabilizing substance. This substance prevents the destruction of the film from solar radiation.
I cleaned half a kilometer of black film 70 microns thick. Most large farms use just such a film. Then I laid the film and planted the saplings.
Everything was fine until our Siberian winds began. The film began to tear and sway in the wind. The wind reached 20 meters per second. It was necessary to constantly drift it along the edges of the ground, but this did not help. I even had to get old bricks and press the film so that it would not sail. However, by the end of the season the result was sad.
I realized that the usual mulching method is not suitable for Siberia. Now I try my method. I make two grooves and cover them with a film on top. The part of the ground that I take out of the holes, I lay next to the film to remain in place.
This form of beds is very effective.It is blown less by the wind, all the water falls into the holes and less watering is required, and in winter the holes are immediately clogged with snow and the strawberries freeze through less. I also buy the film at least 120 microns. But this is quite a costly and time-consuming method and is not yet suitable for large plantations.
