THE FIRST USE of a plastic film in agriculture is said to date from 1948 when Prof. E.M. Emmert had no money to buy a glasshouse and covered a wooden structure with cellulose acetate film, which he replaced with polyethylene film some time later. The use of polymers in agriculture on a significant scale started in the early 1950s when low density polyethylene (LDPE) was used to replace paper for mulching vegetables.
In 1987, and continuing for nearly eight years, Dr. Papdopoulos, compared greenhouses vegetable production under greenhouses covered with glass, double poly and hard acrylic panels. The results showed that production of tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers was comparable under all three structures.
