Using trellis netting you reduce the number of posts and stakes as compared to raffia

PEPINO-TOMATLAN02

Raffia requires cutting down too many posts and stakes, using HORTOMALLAS one may reduce the number of posts needed for trellising crops

It has been proven over years of empirical experience that farmers are able to reduce the number of posts and stakes they need in order to support their vegetable crops when using HORTOMALLAS trellis netting.  The only thing you will need is a good upper tensioning cable well anchored into the ground at both extremities of each furrow, so that posts can be distanced up to 10 meters apart (depending on soil conditions, weather, type of cultivar, and type of posts and the depth it has been driven into the ground and possibly the presence of two main posts at the heads of the furrow).Once you sum up the labor savings (installation and subsequent tutoring and guidance of the plants), the savings in chemicals as better phytosanitary conditions will  protect the plants from pathogens, a great yield and the overall better quality of the crops, anybody will realize that using HORTOMALLAS will definitely improve the bottom line for the horticulturist.There is a worldwide trend among local governments to implement campaigns aimed at protecting endemic species and giving out incentives to stimulate reforestation.  For most farmers using stakes and posts cut (legally or not) in nearby fields or mountains is a main component of the crop implements needed for supporting vegetables.  These are literally  hundreds of millions of posts that could have helped prevent landslides, retain water, absorb CO2 etc.  By using HORTOMALLAS trellis netting one reduces substantially the number of posts and stakes needed in their fields as compared to when using raffia to guide and train plants.Besides the obvious cost savings in reducing the number of stakes for planting, by using HORTOMALLAS you will also increase your productivity and crop yields, by improving air flow and reducing pathogens, and mechanical transmission of diseases.

HORTOMALLAS

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!
