Covering agricultural crops allows for the regulation of environmental factors

Covering agricultural crops allows for the regulation of environmental factors

Covering agricultural crops allows for the regulation of environmental factors, enhancing yield and improving plant quality. Additionally, it can induce early harvests and achieve more extensive and longer-lasting production.

Plastic meshes are commonly use to protect agricultural crops from excessive solar radiation, environmental threats, or pests. They are also install to modify sunlight, improve the crop’s microclimate, and provide physical protection against wind and insects. Consequently, an overall higher agro-economic yield of agricultural crops is achieve. Most protected agricultural crops include vegetables, especially leafy greens, followed by cut flowers, ornamental plants, and fruits.

Types of Protected Cultivation

The type of protection depends on the crop, climate, and desired benefits. Examples of protected cultivation include tunnels, shade houses, and greenhouses. Protected cultivation can be achieve with plastic mesh installations. For instance, shade nets protect plants from sun damage and other atmospheric agents by reducing radiation and wind speed. Protection can be limite to the roof or also include the sidewalls (shade house). Greenhouses are generally more complex and costly structures that may include climate control and artificial lighting systems.

The INVERNAVELO® thermal blanket can be installed in micro-tunnels to protect crops in their early stages, when they are most subject to attack by phytopathogens and frost.

Effects of Plant Protection

Various factors are modified through the application of protection systems, including radiation, temperature, humidity, airspeed, and ventilation. These climatic variables affect plant growth and development, as well as water and fertilizer supply.

Optimization in Protected Cultivation: High yields and high-quality products, resource savings, and better harvest timelines.

Radiation is essential for photosynthesis and, consequently, plant production. Thus, in protected environments, the light plants receive is a critical factor. The properties of the covering are crucial for achieving optimal radiation and light balance. Shade nets reduce the amount of light while increasing the fraction of diffuse radiation and modifying the light spectrum (especially colored shade nets).

Color-Selective Nets

Color-selective nets selectively filter different bands of solar radiation and/or transform direct light into diffuse light. Spectral manipulation aims to specifically promote desired physiological responses, while dispersion improves the penetration of spectrally modified light into the plant canopy. The use of colored nets instead of traditional black mesh has led to substantial increases.

The primary response to photo-selective filtering is the production of more fruits per plant without reducing the size or quality of the fruit. Additional benefits include improved pest control through photo-selective enhancement. For example, yellow shade nets reduce the penetration of whiteflies, and the incidence of cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) transmitted by aphids is reduce. In summary, colored nets in protected cultivation are a valuable tool for improving crop yield and pest control.

Consistent Temperature in Protected Cultivation

Shade nets prevent significant differences between day and night temperatures. Large temperature fluctuations can induce disorders, such as cracking in tomatoes, which reduces marketable yield.

INVERNAVELO® can be installed as a floating cover directly on plants.
INVERNAVELO® thermal fabric can be installed as a floating cover directly over the plants to be protected.

During the cold season, low temperatures and reduced irradiation can negatively affect growth and yield, reducing product quality. Prolonged exposure to low temperatures can cause wilting and various metabolic disturbances. Frost protection nets maintain suitable climatic conditions during cold periods to ensure a good harvest. INVERNAVELO® is a woven fabric that also helps accelerate fruit ripening.

Benefits of Applying Plastic Nets

Our nets are made of high-quality polyethylene with additives that prevent degradation due to UV radiation. They also help retain radiation at night, preventing water vapor condensation from dripping inside. Additionally, the mesh treatments can alter the radiation reaching the crop, thus modifying the microclimate. The microclimate influences the plants’ water demand. Generally, shade and reduced wind speed decrease water demand compared to open fields, especially in tropical, subtropical, semi-arid, or desert regions.

The efficiency of INVERNAVELO® nonwoven fabric makes it an ideal method to apply to your crops.

In tropical regions, protective structures also reduce the impact of heavy rainstorms. Benefits include reduced production costs, which also reflect a decrease in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, making plastic nets a sustainable solution.

Covering Materials

When choosing the ideal cover, consider the properties of the nets, such as reflectance, transmittance, and absorbance of different wavelengths. The type of installation, plant type, and cultivation method are also important, considering factors like height and leaf area index. We help you choose the right net to achieve maximum yield. Depending on the region and climate, the most efficient solution for each crop should be selected. High-tech greenhouses produce high yields but require a high initial cost. Conversely, shade house and tunnel projects are low-cost alternatives, allowing for climate control with reduced operational costs.
