One of the most significant obstacles to sustainability in the horticulture industry is the extensive reliance of present systems on containers made from non-renewable, petroleum-based plastics.  Advances in the area of bioplastics indicate strong potential for the use of these biorenewable, biodegradable materials as sustainable replacements for petroleum-based plastics in horticultural crop containers.
