The use of plastic components in agriculture has helped the sector to develop and produce more yield compare
to the ancient times. Modern use of plastic in agriculture is defined as Plasticulture and been referred any application of
thermoplastic including polyethylene and polypropylene on the soil surfaces, mulching system and green houses. The
importance of Plasticulture in modern technique of farming is tremendous especially in improving the soil structure,
controlling soil temperature in seasonal countries, controlling weeds and soil-borne diseases and as seedlings carriers from
the nurseries to plantation fields. Green Plasticulture refers to sustainable type of polymeric materials used in agriculture that
contributes significantly less impact to environment and the soil, especially. Many countries such as Malaysia and Indonesia
depend heavily in agricultural sectors thus causing the plastic uses in the field as enormous. This paper review Plasticulture
in agricultural and plantation sectors in some important agricultural-based countries.
