Water stress in Solanceae reduces profitability Horticultural support netting creates the right conditions to enable water stress to be reduced on crops of serrano pepper chillies (capisicum annumm L.). During its development stages when the plant finds water available, it readily absorbs it through its roots (a recurring topic of interest for those who work […]
How are vegetables tutored today? Tutoring vegetables is an important part of modern agriculture although the materials and tutoring methods have changed as time has moved on, from tutoring with traditional raffia, to using horticultural trellis netting which has become popular in recent years. Solanaceae (tomatoes, chillies and eggplants/aubergines), cucurbits (chayote, pumpkin, cantaloupe melons, […]
Reduce mechanical stress with HORTOMALLAS Mechanical stress appears as a physical alteration in the plant or in one of its parts and can affect the plant at any stage of its development. Wind and rain are the main factors causing mechanical stress but there are other factors too such as animals and in the case […]
Advantages of double walled tutoring nets on both sides of furrows. The method of using double walled tutoring nets reduces the mechanical stress on the plants and slows down the spread of plant pathogens. You might ask yourself how to save manpower when fastening plants to the HORTOMALLAS horticultural netting. Using double rows of netting trellis […]
Effects of climate change on agriculture: trellising net as a preventive method against crop damage.
Heavy rains due to climate change, increase crop failures due to humidity related pathogens. Today is essential to cultivate using trellising net when growing vegetables due to climate change. We are facing possibly irreversible climatic changes that have modified in short term our climate worldwide, changing ecosystems, breaking balance of the environment for the species […]
Mechanical stress affects crops due to wind action Wind damages may be prevented if we tutor crops like cucurbits and solanaceous giving the proper trellis support to plants decreasing mechanical stress. But what is wind? Wind is an air stream produced in the atmosphere by natural causes” which can be catastrophic as hurricanes, gales, […]
