Surface mulches are used to prevent soil from blowing and being washed away, reduce evaporation, increase infiltration, keep down weeds, improve soil structure and eventually to increase crop yields.


Inter-culture kills weeds and produces 5 to 7cm thick soil mulch, which reduce evaporation from the topsoil. It also breaks the surface crust, which forms after each downpour.
