AGROTECH (AGRO TEXTILES)
Knitted monofilament nets (open, knitted, nets for crop protection) offer effective passive protection of seeds, crops and fruit against damage caused by birds and a variety of pests. Open-mesh net fabrics are used as a means of protecting fruit plantation. The special open structure repels birds, provides minimal shading and excellent air circulation -- allowing plants to flourish, while avoiding the risk of dangerous mould developing on the fruit.
These are the made from polyolefin type of fibre. They are mainly used for the tomato type of plant. The gsm of the nets are 30 - 40. Fruits, which grow close to the ground, can be kept away from the damp soil by allowing them to grow through vertical or tiered nets in order to keep the amount of decayed fruit to minimum.
Tough, knitted Monofil nets for windbreak fences and shading/privacy screens. A suitable windbreak, set at a right-angle to the prevailing wind, will protect plants against the harmful effects of blustery weather -- which can break young branches, damage flowers and cause leaves to dry or tear. They can also be used to block sand and salinity as well as reduce wind erosion. The nets also protect against frosts and help enhance the micro-climate (Photosynthesis, and ground moisture, is improved by reduced evaporation and transpiration).While special anti-hail net grades have been designed to withstand the impact of heavy hailstorms, when installed in roof-profile above crops and orchards. This not only safeguards the current harvest but also benefits future crops, since the woody parts of the plant are protected too.
It is extremely important for safe and speedy growing of young plants that root system is not damaged when they are dug up, transported or replanted. Normally the root balls are wrapped in cloth. Elastic net tubes are alternative to this. When the plants are transplanted the nets on the outside do not have to be removed since the roots can protrude through the nets.
Clear, woven, and knitted, polyethylene monofilament meshes to exclude harmful insects from greenhouses and tunnels, or to keep pollinating insects inside. The fine woven screens protect plants from insect attack (without the use of insecticides). Insect meshes can also be placed over the openings of greenhouses to prevent pollinating insects, such as bumblebees, from escaping.
Weed control fabrics prevent unwanted weeds in an environmentally friendly way. Weed control fabrics allows air, water, and fertilizers to pass through the fabric to the plant roots.
Nonwoven Fabric fruit covering gives a quicker and better growing and increases the harvest. Protecting the vegetables, strawberries and plants against frost, snow, rain, heat or damaged caused by creeps, pests and birds. It increases the growing temperature and extends the growing season.
