For over a decade, Dow has been working alongside leading academics and agricultural institutes to improve the techniques and technologies involved in agricultural film solutions. Our innovations in polyethylene resins for use in applications such as bale silage, silage clamps, greenhouses and tunnels, and mulch films has helped farmers lead the way to a more profitable and environmentally friendly future. Dow’s high-quality resins for agricultural films reduce the need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, leading to increased crop productivity through higher yields, better varieties, and targeted weed, insect, and disease control.
Dow’s R&D in polyethylene technology for use on farms has helped reduce the need for chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, and helped improve overall efficiency.A perfect example is silage wrap formulated with Dow resins. Thanks to the innovative efforts of Dow and its collaborators, silage wrap helps to maintain the nutritional value of forage plants such as corn, vegetables and grasses until its needed.
Dow Agricultural Films Help Mother Nature
Silage film is just one of the ways Dow is improving traditional material used in farming environments. Dow resins are improving the performance and durability of greenhouse and tunnel films, geomembranes and mulch films. All of these products help improve crop quality and crop yield, and remain environmentally friendly.
