MetadataShow full item record
The results presented in this WSU publication serve as a general guide for evaluating the feasibility of using plastic soil-biodegradable mulches as an alternative to conventional plastic polyethylene mulch in the production of pie pumpkin in western Washington. This publication is not intended to be a definitive guide to production practices but is helpful in estimating the physical and financial requirements of comparable plantings. To avoid unwarranted conclusions for any particular operation, readers must carefully examine the assumptions made in this study and then adjust the costs, returns, or both as appropriate for their operation.
