The paper deals with various polymer materials for agricultural purposes. To date, there are many technologies for growing crops that use polymer films: greenhouses, greenhouses, planting seeds in capsules. There are a lot of works on the study of biodegradable compositions based on biopolymers with synthetic polymers, as well as the analysis of the impact of destructive environmental factors on samples. Binary polylactide–low-density polyethylene blends of various compositions were prepared, and their biodegradability in soil and water absorption kinetics. The degree of water absorption is higher for the blends than for the pure polymers. The weight loss is higher upon incubation in laboratory soil compared to open soil. Changes in the specimen macrostructure after exposure to soil were demonstrated by optical microscopy.
