Shading for horticulture

Shading for horticulture

Shading for your crops

Plastic mesh for shading plants and protecting them from the wind. Shading for horticulture becomes essential when the intensity of sunlight needs to be reduce or to counteract the action of the wind. Plants need sunlight to complete the process of photosynthesis; however, excessive direct exposure can be harmful. Shading for horticulture. Shade net for protection against the sun and excessive heat of the most delicate vegetables. Sunlight and solar heat are essential elements for the growth of each plant. However, during the hottest season, excessive amounts of sun and heat can become harmful and compromise the health of vegetables. Additionally, they can also endanger the sprouts of growing seedlings. Therefore, it is advisable to provide protection to plants, mainly during the hottest and driest months.

Shading for horticulture
Use shading netting over the crops to avoid mechanical stress on the crops.

Avoid crop stress and get more benefits from a high-quality harvest.

Protect plants with shading.

Shading for horticulture is essential, especially for vegetables that require abundant irrigation

OBAMALLA® meshes also protect plants from sun rays coming laterally, being able to adapt to any area and structure. They are highly resistant to any atmospheric agent.

Problem of excessive soil transpiration

During the hottest season, not only should the problem of protecting plants from excessive sunlight be solved, but it is also important to limit the evaporation of water from the soil. The effects of high temperatures are not the same for all plants but vary according to different factors. First of all, the species and botanical variety. For example, some plants are more resistant than others. The development stage is also important. In fact, young plants are more sensitive to heat than adults. Due to a different structure, some suffer more from heat.

Most common problems requiring shading for horticulture application

Heatstroke

It manifests as the drying of a limited portion of the plant and is generally evident on very hot and windy days. The cause is excessive insolation, which causes a water imbalance and irreversibly damages flowers and fruits.

Dehydration or wilting

This phenomenon is the most frequent and affects plants exposed to the sun for a long time or poorly irrigated. In addition to dehydration, there is also a decrease in the photosynthesis process of chlorophyll.

Sunburn

Even burns appear in the case of very high temperatures or prolonged exposure to the sun. In general, they affect the collars and stems of young plants.

Deformations of fruits

High temperatures can cause breaks in fruits and vegetables, but also alterations in the skin and spots that reduce commercial value.

Drying of flowers

This phenomenon is especially found in plants that need to be watered frequently.

Crop stress due to excess heat

On the one hand, sunlight is essential for the health and development of vegetables. On the other hand, when it is excessively intense, sunlight damages the tissues of the fruits, causing skin burns. Depending on the temperature, we can distinguish two types of damage: necrosis and browning. Heat causes the death of epidermal and subepidermal cells, resulting in necrotic spots on the side of the fruit exposed to the sun. Browning, on the other hand, does not cause necrosis but simply causes the formation of yellow to bronze or coffee-colored spots on the side of the fruit exposed to the sun. Ultimately, thermal stress can cause necrosis – that is, premature plant death. High temperatures over a sufficiently long period can cause irreversible damage to plant functionality.

Enzymatic activity

Damage can be verified at the membrane level with the deterioration of normal characteristics and at the photosystem level with the alteration of proteins and enzymatic activity. In addition, indirectly, thermal stress causes water stress because transpiration increases. At the cellular level, the synthesis of heat shock proteins is verified, and dehydration with a reduction in leaf size. All of the above causes decreases in production.

Shading for horticulture: when it is especially recommended.

  • Thermal and water stress can be reduced by using proper shading for horticulture, with plastic mesh in tunnel or shade house.
  • Newly transplanted crops are at higher risk.
  • Even sowing must be kept under control. In fact, seedlings, if not adequately protected from the sun, struggle to germinate. For example, many leafy vegetables need a temperature of no more than 20 degrees to germinate.

A practical and easy to install shading system is the OBAMALLA® shading net.

Transplanted plants and seedlings are more affected by too hot sun, but even adult plants are at risk, some more than others. This is the case with peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchinis, and eggplants. In addition to damaging the plant, too much sun can cause the appearance of fungi. An excellent way to protect crops from the sun is to use shading for horticulture.

Effects of wind on plants

The effects of wind on plants are very important and sometimes decisive for production. OBAMALLA® plastic meshes are protective measures that can be implemented to prevent harmful effects caused by the wind. As a windbreak barrier, it reduces the force of the air and prevents the problems it may cause.

there are many advantages of shade netting
There are many advantages of OBAMALLA® shade netting both at home and in the field.

Situations created by excessive wind:

  • Increase in evapotranspiration Wind that deforms leaves causes contractions and expansions of leaves, forcing internal air exchange with the outside, thus accentuating transpiration;
  • Acceleration of ripening and drying of seeds and soil;
  • Morphological alterations. Plants that grow under the influence of dry winds never reach a degree of turgidity sufficient to expand their cells, and the organs are reduced.
  • Uprooting of tree plants and possible flower fall;
  • Transport of marine salts. The transport of sodium chloride particles can cause serious damage to vegetation, given its toxicity;
  • Abrasion. That is, when the wind carries sand particles, it exerts a powerful abrasive action.
