Double your yield with the Screen-of-green support netting!

This is why you need MallaJuana SCROG net.

The SCROG or Screen-of-Green support aims to produce fewer plants, but with a bigger and more uniform canopy. Thanks to the Screen-of-Green support net more branches get the right amount of light even within a limited cultivation area. Scrog method is especially used indoor, where space is reduced. But it can be applied also outdoor to enhance quality.

The Screen-of-Green support promotes horizontal growth.

The SCROG method utilizes a netting screen to support the plants. A more innovative and time saving technique consists of building the screen using MALLAJUANA Scrog net. When the canopy reaches the net, fix the branches of the plants to the net using HORTOMALLAS clips. Thus the branches are trained to develop horizontally and uniformly. We recommend to secure the net on a structure made by poles, for instance wooden, or plastic or bamboo poles. The vegetable material should be supported by the net for increasing production. MALLAJUANA trellis mesh is wide enough to permit pulling sprouts through it. So even the inner buds are better exposed to the source of light. Some varieties of plants are more adaptable to S.C.R.O.G., the ones with higher internodal distance and with flexible stems.

Methods of Screen-of-Green support.

There are two methods of Screen-of-Green support.

1. Cover the plants with the ultralight MallaJuana SCROG net, put the net over them and bring it down into the canopy. Then weave the branches through the net.

2. Install the MallaJuana net between the plants and the source of light. To improve horizontal growth place the MALLAJUANA trellis netting approximately 30 cm above the pots. Wait until the plants grow up. When the plants reach the net, guide the tops of the arms through the squares in the screen.

Increase air circulation and prevents pests with the Screen-of-Green support.

The SCROG tutoring method enhances the development of the vegetative material guaranteeing optimal exposure to light. At the same time it helps support and guide the plants far from the humid soil. So damages to these valuable plants are reduced and an appropriate air circulation is provided. Your plants can be affected by fungus, thrips, mosaic virus, and flies, among others. The Screen-of-Green support permits the air to circulate into the canopy, and allows more effective and so fewer agrochemical applications will be required. Furthermore, once the branches are secured to the SCROG NET, it is not necessary to manipulate them anymore. Reducing hand labour, not only leads to simplifying the process, but also prevents viruses to spread among the plants mechanically. In fact the hands are vectors of many diseases.

MALLAJUANA Scrog net, the economical screen for Screen-of-green support

MALLAJUANA is a bi-oriented PP thermoplastic net, ideal for Screen-of-Green support. Including hydroponic systems. MALLAJUANA SCROG net is very strong so it perfectly holds the canopy weight. It is UV resistant, and very durable. It can last years in indoor and outdoor conditions. It is reusable, easily wrappable and storable.


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. Call us, our crop specialists will help you with specialized attention in the Americas and the Iberian Peninsula!
