Plastic Mulch is commonly used by strawberry growers, but is also used by organic farmers for a variety of other crops. Black plastic mulch is often used as a ground cover by organic strawberry growers to suppress weeds, stimulate plant roots and keep the berries from rotting on the ground. One drawback is that runoff due to rain or irrigation is higher with plastic, causing bottom-row erosion. The Natural Resources Conservation Service encourages farmers to install grassed waterways or buffer strips to help stem that flow and reduce furrow erosion.
