HORTOMALLAS Trellis netting for tutoring flowers and vegetable plants
we specialize in the production and distribution of trellis netting
, also known as vegetable
or flower support net
and trellising crops
, whether they are horticulture
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.
Greenhouse with indeterminated tomatoes trained on HORTOMALLAS grow 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.
, tutoring net
is installed horizontally on top of the flower bed (usually before the buds are transplanted), on the contrary in horticulture HORTOMALLAS trellising 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
