What is the mechanical stress in plants and how to solve it?

To ensure that the crop grows strong and can develop smoothly, it is necessary to create a structure that can support the weight of the plant during its growth. HORTOMALLAS® trellis netting is an extruded mesh that facilitates agricultural activities such as pruning, weed cleaning, fertilization, and reduces incidents due to the mechanical stress for farmers.

In tomato cultivation, it is necessary to help them grow strong and develop without setbacks. You need a mesh that is durable, flexible, and provides support to your tomato crop. Our HORTOMALLAS® trellis mesh has the necessary characteristics. It provides support to your crop as it is made of high-density polypropylene, which is resistant to the weight of your crop.

MECHANICAL STRESS IN PLANTS

The mechanical stress causes loss of yield in your crop and affects during the vegetative development stage. It is cause by wind, rain, and manipulation of plants during agricultural practices.

The mechanical stress affects plants at any stage of their development, but seedlings are most affected. In these, the mechanical stress affects their development by reducing stem elongation and leaf expression. These damages caused by the mechanical stress can lead to a reduction in stem thickness in some vegetable species.

HORTOMALLAS® trellis netting reduces the mechanical stress generated by plant care activities since there is no direct contact with the crop, creating an optimal environment for its development.

TRELLISING

The trellis netting can be install vertically or horizontally, depending on the trellising you choose. Since it is a flexible and resistant mesh, it can adapt to your preferred trellising method. With HORTOMALLAS® trellis mesh, plants can be wedged and supported by the mesh, leaving aisles free for easier passage of the farmer. It also makes fertilizer application easier.

Tomatoes trellised with HORTOMALLAS® trellis mesh have better quality and are less likely to require pesticide application. The trellis mesh prevents diseases in your crop since they are not expose to moisture from the ground, thus improving tomato cultivation.

HORTOMALLAS® trellis netting enhances agricultural production by improving crop quality. Providing support to your crop, and saving time compared to traditional manual raffia trellising. Trellising or netting increases planting density and airflow, reducing humidity that causes harmful phytopathogens, such as mycosis and virosis.

HORTOMALLAS® trellis netting improves agricultural production by increasing plant lifespan and providing excellent trellising support. It is easy to install, sturdy, and resistant to crops.

How to install HORTOMALLAS® trellis mesh?

The mesh can be secured between posts, and then the upper squares can be tensioned by weaving an agricultural raffia thread between them and tying them to the support posts according to the distance. The distance between posts depends on soil type, climatic conditions, crop type, post type, and anchoring. Using trellis mesh for trellising substantially reduces the number of stakes needed in crops.
