Competition for the light
makes plants see red

red plastic mulch
laid under plants,
Have you ever noticed
feeling different in
A room painted with red
walls can make you feel energised,
while a room with blue walls can
promote calmness and relaxation.
The same could be said for plants
and animals in the garden.
Researchers at the US Agricultural
Research Service in South
Carolina discovered that red
plastic mulch (plastic sheeting) can
energise your tomatoes.
Also known as selective reflective
mulch, it can produce up to 20 per
cent higher yields than tomato
plants without it.
I remember the idea of red plastic
mulch being bandied about six or
seven years ago when I was editing
Weekend Gardener magazine.
Plastic mulch wasn't readily
available, but you can now get it
online. So how does that work?
Phytochromes, which regulate
growth and development, react
differently to different colours
(wavelengths in the light
spectrum), particularly in the red
or far-red range. Light reflected
from the red mulch has a lower red
to far-red ratio than normal
When the far-red light wavelengths
reflect off the red plastic mulch
onto the tomato plants, the
phytochromes tell the plant to grow
faster and produce more.
Far-red wavelengths are not
photosynthetically active. In other
words, they don't fuel plant growth.
Instead, they enable plants to react
to the environment.
Green leaves reflect far-red light, so
if there are a score of other plants
nearby, a tomato plant will sense a
high ratio of far-red to red light.
Sensing competition for sunlight
prompts it to put on a growth spurt
so that it can compete for light. By
laying down red mulch,
researchers found they could trick
the tomato plants into believing
there was competition close by.
The same researchers trialled red
plastic mulch beneath strawberry
plants and found the plants to
produce a higher yield, larger
berries and a higher sugar content.
They also reported that a blue
plastic mulch under turnips
produced a stronger flavour and a
green mulch produced a mild,
almost sweet, flavour.
Research at the University of
Florida found that red, green or
blue plastic mulch gave no benefit
to crops in that state, concluding
that coloured mulches worked
better in cooler parts of the
