Plastic trellis netting for climbing plants improves plant health and reduces production costs for vegetables

Plastic trellis netting for climbing plants improves plant health and reduces production costs for vegetables

You may have seen trellis netting before but what about plastic trellis net?

The HORTOMALLAS® plastic trellis netting is a product that has the professional horticulturalist in mind. And has been in use for decades in intensive agriculture around the world.

Plastic trellis netting
In flower crops, the tutor mesh helps an adequate development of the flowers.

This polypropylene net, often confuse with polyester net, is commonly call plastic mesh.

Is reusable for several production cycles of cucumbers, squash, cantaloupe, chayote, and other plants for trellis.

Crops with support mesh
The mesh for vines improves the conditions for the good development of the crop.

The tendrils of these cucurbitaceae climb up and fasten themselves to this trellis structure which is semi-rigid once installed.

cucumbers with trellis mesh
Tendrils are fastened to the mesh for vines in which they find suitable support.

Plastic trellis mesh becomes a perch to which climbing plants train themselves and replaces using twine for making netting for cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.  It is the perfect vegetable trellising system.

The growth of the plant is distributed by the mesh for vines.

Harvest support

HORTOMALLAS® is the ideal harvest support since the vegetables supported by this plastic trellis mesh receive better air flow and ventilation for their foliage mass. 

This considerably diminishes the incidence of plant pathogens. Be it because it reduces the exposure of the leaves to moisture, or because it decreases the need to manually train the plants to the trellis and this reduction in physical contact by the hands of workers means that there is much less contamination by physical contact. 

Let’s remember that the transmission of viruses by physical contact can be the fault of insects, such as thrips or whiteflies,  but it can also easily be the fault of workers’ hands serving as vectors for diseases.

Mesh for vines is also suitable for nightshade tutoring.

HORTOMALLAS® plastic trellis mesh can also be use in gardens to let climbing flowers grow as though on a lattice and support itself on the netting’s strands and squared structure.  This way ornamental flowers can maintain themselves against a smooth wall [Illustration 1] while at the same time ensuring better air flow and exposure to the sun. 

When used in commercial agriculture or horticulture, the savings in comparison to twine, is greater.  Also keep in mind that twine can harbor insects or bacteria (or viruses or spores).

As well as residues from applications of chemicals, which makes it advisable not to reuse it.  Twine can also be expensive to salvage and there is always a lot of damage.
