Plasticulture improves production in quantity and quality, using less pesticides, fertilizers, waters, etc. Since the beginning, the plasticulture community is involved in the environment protection, reducing the negative impact of the agricultural production. Once collected, plastics wastes from agriculture can be recycled.
