silage tarps are used to kill weeds by occultation, whereby the plastic maintains a warm.
Moist environment that stimulates weed germination, blocks out light, and subsequently kills the weeds.
Used in fallow fields to prevent weed growth.
Or placed on freshly prepared beds a few weeks prior to seeding or transplanting for a virtually weed-free environment for crop growth.
For best results, orient black side up and secure well with sandbags, tires, etc. 5 mil black/white polyethylene.
UV resistant. Approximately 120 lbs.
Here’s how it works:
- The black tarp creates a warm, moist environment which quickly kills established weeds and encourages rapid weed seed germination.
- The newly emerged weeds then face a dark, suffocating environment in which they quickly die.
- Worms and other beneficial organisms soon appear to decompose any organic matter and loosen the soil.
- In three to four weeks (up to six weeks in winter) you will have an almost completely composted and beautiful stale seedbed!

During the warmer months, it only takes a few weeks to go from grass to soil.
This garden plot preparation technique is called “occultation”, which simply means that the tarp is blocking the sun from touching the soil.
The lack of sunlight penetrating the soil creates a warm, dark, moist environment.
This environment facilitates the germination of weed seeds that quickly die due to the lack of sunlight.
It also creates dynamic soil life with abundant earthworms and beneficial bacterial populations.
