Growing Crops successfully Thanks to Horticultural Netting
Horticultural netting saves labor, increases air flow and degrees brix, and increases exposure to sunlight. Yields increase by up to 30% according to research by the UAS (a Mexican university). It reduces the need for applications of agrochemicals since there will be healthier growth of the plant and not so many pathological elements surrounding it, thanks to better phytosanitary conditions as a result of the crop being on trellis netting.
HORTOMALLAS® horticultural netting reduces the transmission of plant pathogens by physical contact since, by reducing the labor needed for training the plant to a trellis, there is less physical contact by the workers. Workers’ hands can become a vector just the same as any insect that comes to rest on a plant affected by virus, fungus, or bacteria ends up infecting other plants that it lands on, creating an exponential factor in the rate of infection of the crop.
