OFA provided its support for the “Biodegradable Bale wraps for Ontario Agriculture” project proposed by the Bioproducts Discovery and Development Centre. Plastic waste on farms is a major concern for farmers. There is a need for research focused on producing compostable baling twine, netting, and films designed to withstand prolonged outside exposure, but able to decompose or be edible when shredded into livestock feed. In Ontario, over 3,500 tonnes of plastic agricultural waste is generated each year including six million pounds coming from plastic bale wraps and silage. Options for farmers to send agricultural plastic wastes for recycling are currently very limited. OFA will promote this project and help identify farmers who would volunteer to use biodegradable plastic bale wraps on their farms.
