      Cool soil temperatures in Alaska are a limiting factor for many crops. Clear plastic mulch has been shown to increase soil temperatures, and use of this mulch has allowed the production of many warm season crops farther north than they could otherwise be grown. Clear plastic mulch and row covers are used in interior Alaska to promote early growth and increase yields of strawberries.
