Stuck in Horticulture:

Optimizing the growth and performance of your crops with HORTOMALLAS®

The practice of stemming in horticulture has proven to be an essential technique for achieving healthy and productive crops. By providing vertical support for plants, it facilitates sun exposure and air circulation, two crucial factors for optimal development. In this article, we will explore in detail the importance and how HORTOMALLAS® offers innovative solutions to optimize the growth and yield of your crops.

Stuck in Horticulture: Basics and Benefits

  1. Vertical Support for Healthy Growth:

Stranding involves installing netting or ropes that serve as support for growing plants. This practice allows plants to grow vertically rather than spread horizontally, resulting in a more even distribution of sunlight and greater nutrient uptake.

  1. Maximization of Space and Efficiency in Cultivation:

By keeping plants upright, staking allows for more efficient use of growing space. This is especially important in areas where space is limited, as it allows a larger number of plants to be grown in a smaller space.

  1. Reduction of Diseases and Pests:

Stranding also contributes to the reduction of diseases and pests by keeping plants elevated off the ground. This decreases direct contact with potential pathogens and helps maintain a cleaner, more airy environment around the plants.

Stringing Techniques: Meshes and Ropes in Horticulture

  1. Support Meshes in Horticulture:

Stringing nets offer strong, long-lasting support for growing plants. Made with high quality materials, such as polypropylene, HORTOMALLAS® nets are designed to resist adverse weather conditions and provide reliable support throughout the growth cycle of your crops.

  1. Stiffening Ropes:

Stringing is another popular technique in horticulture. The ropes allow for greater flexibility in terms of adjustment and positioning of the plants. HORTOMALLAS® offers a wide range of resistant and durable ropes designed specifically for stranding in agriculture.

  1. Combination of Meshes and Ropes:

In some cases, the combination of netting and rope may be the most effective option for stiffening. This allows for greater adaptability and customization based on the specific needs of your crops and the layout of your growing space.

Advantages of Using Meshes and Ropes in Stranding

  1. Higher Crop Yield and Quality:

Stranding with HORTOMALLAS® meshes and ropes contributes to greater crop yield and quality by optimizing exposure to sunlight and air circulation. This translates into more abundant and higher quality harvests.

  1. Reduction of Crop Losses and Waste:

By providing adequate support, springing helps prevent sagging or deformation of fruits and vegetables, reducing crop losses and waste. This is especially important in crops such as tomatoes, peppers and cucumbers.

  1. Improvement of Crop Sanitary Conditions:

By keeping plants elevated off the ground, staking contributes to greater hygiene and reduction of soil-borne diseases. This promotes a healthier, cleaner environment for your crops.
