Vegetable Trellis Net
Trellis Net for Horticulture Crop Support
HORTOMALLAS trellis net can be used many cycles of crops, even left out on its post supports, amortizing the mulch and irrigation expense over a larger number of harvests, rotating cultivations in an phyto-efficient manner.
Here a comparison between raffia twine and HORTOMALLAS trellis net; which one would you use in your field?
HORTOMALLAS trellising net can be easily installed 30-50 cms above the soil in the furrow, to take advantage of the plant´s capacity (in the case of climbers with tendrils like cucumbers and beans) to find its way upwards towards the first mesh of the net and not have to spend extra money to cover a larger surface. As one can appreciate from the picture, the plant support netting can stay installed even after the first cultivation cycle, alternating crops, whether they need or not a tutoring system. In the case of peppers, eggplants or tomatoes, we recommend using a double wall system, installed lower, as to allow the first line of trellis netting mesh near the ground on each side of the plant to be tied in order to hold the plant upright.

Used in Europe since the early 70s, HORTOMALLAS trellis net will reduce the rate of propagation of diseases and phytopathogens since it also requires less labor and human intervention during the tutoring phase, less hand contact less vectors!See the advantage of training vegetable plants.
