Key global speakers to discuss latest agricultural film developments at AMI conference

AMI's 6th Agricultural Film conference will take place in Madrid from 16-18 September 2013

(PresseBox) (Bristol, ) Over the past 60 years, agricultural output and productivity has significantly increased and plastic agricultural film for silage, mulch and greenhouse applications has made substantial contribution to this development. The use of plastic films has been notable in the horticultural industry, as well as in preserving and improving quality of silage, contributing to continuously increasing yields. Plastic films have also enabled the extension of cultivation in terms of the growing season and the location through the use of protective mulch and greenhouse films.For players in the market the business is a challenging one with many conflicting trends.
