Mulching is the process of covering the soil around trees or between rows of crops for:

  • reducing the impact of raindrops on the soil
  • hindering runoff flow and checking wind erosion
  • reducing evaporation by its physical presence on the soil

A variety of materials are used for mulching:

  • fresh tree leaves or cut grasses (green mulching)
  • dried leaves or cut grasses (dry mulching)
  • crop residues
  • stones
  • plastic sheets
