Good morning Mr Pepe
In Elliot Colman “Four-Season Harvest” book 1992-99 he attributes the Father of clear plastic greenhousing to Professor Emery Myers Emmert staring in the late 1930’s. Pre-WWII the good professor used cellulose acetate sheeting he got from the same suppliers as the cigarette package manufactures used.
Cellulose acetate is made from wood and plant fibers.
It was after WWII that he switched to a longer chained polyethylene made from Dino-glut as more durable and super cheaper, available, then.
The plastic water bottles I complain that my wife obsesses with versus our now mandated chlorine dosed tap waters are “plant based” Desanie (sp) and OregonRain brands. Theses bottles are made from corn starches.
Post-oil glut world we could still have clear AG sheeting. Eventual bio-degradable would be better anyhow.
FIRST - DO to prove the capability, and learn forward from.
Next - then evolve to get the same results with less inputs, and better sustainable inputs.
Good to hear from 'ya man. You and I will have to keep monkey beating these drums of reasonableness until no longer able, eh. Ain’t quite ready to move on yet. Wifie would kill me for bailing on her, leaving her to do all of the weeding (little joke there).
