Jon Kato has a 5 acre greenhouse in Kuamamoto, Japan.
My family has been in the cucumber greenhouse business for years, I followed my father´s footsteps and have been using plastic trellis netting like HORTOMALLAS for year for our small greenhouses. It simply works better than raffia twine!

HORTOMALLAS tutoring net is easy to use and recollect, although most of the times we just leave it in place and rotate crops instead on the same installation.
Contrary to trellising with raffia twine, HORTOMALLAS guarantees the whole vegetable support structure against accidental cuts and the complete collapse of the trellis.
HORTOMALLAS Trellis netting for tutoring flowers and vegetable plants
At Hortomallas we specialize in the production and distribution of trellis netting, also known as vegetable or flower support net. Tutoring and trellising crops, whether they are horticulture or floriculture is an important cultural aspect of any successful vegetable or flower harvest.
Growing cucumbers inside a greenhouse using HORTOMALLAS trellising net as a plant support system.
. A good plant support and trellising net available to the foliage system increases the yield per length unit of the furrow, the density of the crop and finally by allowing the vertical growth there will be an increase in airflow among the leaves decreasing the rate of attack of pathogens.
Tomato crop protected under a simple greenhouse structure, tutored with HORTOMALLAS crop net reduces labor costs and the spreading of diseases.
Even if and when these harmful agents were to develop, having a well extended and spread out foliage system will allow any chemical treatments to reach the inner plant, assuring greater effectiveness for the treatment and therefore decreasing the times it needs to be applied.

Tutoring with netting is a very simple process, which will save time in comparison to manual weaving of the traditional raffia twine. Also, contrary to the raffia, (being a twisted flat thread allows bacterias, fungi and insects to take refuge in its folds and survive any chemical attack), HORTOMALLAS is not porous so that there is no way pathogens can take "refuge" in it. HORTOMALLAS is inert to agricultural chemicals so the crop net can be used many times over, be it in a greenhouse or a forcing tunnel or open field (of course, the diffused light inside a greenhouse structure will allow HORTOMALLAS to last many more cycles than if this trellis net were to be used in an open field).
Installing HORTOMALLAS crop netting is done with only two people per hectare per day.
In floriculture, tutoring net is installed horizontally on top of the flower bed (usually before the buds are transplanted), on the contrary in horticulture HORTOMALLAStrellising net is almost always installed vertically, as to serve as a tutor for the vegetable plant support as it needs its sustain without the necessity and labor to tie it manually to the netting.
