Provide good support to your crops with horticultural twineHorticultural twine has become the most commonly used protection system in vegetable crops. The use of support netting has been gaining strength within the world of vegetables. It is one of the variants of the traditional methods of tutor plants. The main purpose of the horticultural twine is to provide the plants with a rigid guide and support, which allows them to stand erect and prevent the fruits from touching the moist soil. The materials used for performing this action can be very diverse and will depend on the accessibility of the same.Methods of tutor plants In order to tutor plants, people use different methods with wooden rods; the plant is paired with the wooden rod and moored to keep it erect. This way of tutoring for large crops is impractical and unprofitable. However, at present, there are better methods that fulfil the same function as raffia, but without the disadvantages that this implies. As is the case of polypropylene netting, this netting is an improvement on the traditional tutor system (with raffia). The advantages of using horticultural twine to reduce labor cost Horticultural twine reduces labor costs in many ways and offers the following advantages: 1. It requires less manpower for installation 2. It provides better crop support 3. It allows increasing planting density 4. It can be used for several crop cycles. You can use the method of crop rotation and use the mesh that is already placed, for further reduction in cost of labor.The installation of support netting is done with a vertical installation, serving the netting as a guide for the growth of the plant and as support of the weight of the fruits, avoiding that they hang without interrupting the development of the same. More and more horticultural twine is used to induce crops, compared to agricultural raffia. In addition, horticultural twine can be mounted to double netting; this is done by installing a net to each side of the row of plants. The advantage obtained with this type of double-net tutoring is to obtain control over the growth of the plant, reducing the space that covers a groove of the crop due to the growth of the plants, thus increasing the area that can be used to increase the number of rows. When using horticultural twine for your crops, the proper guidance of the crop and proper development of plants is enhanced. In a short time, the increase in the quality and production of the vegetables will be observed. If we do good work for the field, then we will get excellent results. This is a process that transforms the way of planting vegetables or growing flowers in order to improve production. The horticultural twine is one of the best options for vegetable cropping, it is easy to install. Horticultural twine comes in presentations that are easy to transport, made of virgin polypropylene and guarantee the best quality and production in vegetable growing.
HORTOMALLAS manufactures and markets crop support nettings (trellising and tutoring as alternatives to the raffia twine labor intensive traditional system) that increase crop quality. Our Mission is to: INCREASE VEGETABLE CROP YIELD AND PROFITABILITY TO ALL THOSE VEGETABLES THAT NEED TUTORING AND SUPPORT USING NETTING INSTEAD OF RAFFIA. Since 1994 we help professional growers and farmers improve their cucumber, tomatoes, melon, zucchini, bean, chile, peppers crops where trellises and supports are needed. HORTOMALLAS is the ideal system for cucurbitacea and solonacea to improve their phytosanitary conditions, while increasing the solar exposure and the brix degrees. Besides the obvious labor costs savings, the use of HORTOMALLAS increases the life span of the plant, allowing longer periods of harvests and of a greater quality.
