The growing use of plastics in agriculture has helped farmers increase crop production, improve food quality and reduce the ecological footprint of their activity. Not only do plastics allow for vegetables and fruits to be grown during different seasons, but these products are usually of better quality than those grown in an open field. Greenhouses provide farmers with the opportunity to create the appropriate environmental conditions that are required for plants to have faster and safer growth, avoid extreme temperatures, as well as protect crops from harmful external conditions. Polyethylene allows plants to be exposed to sunlight and grow in ideal conditions according to their physiological properties.
