Why a larger sized mesh is better for your crop support netting?Being the leading brand in vegetable support netting, HORTOMALLAS asked our team of agronomists and biologist to design and come up with the best design in horticulture support net, and the ideal and better design for crop support netting was a larger sized mesh. HORTOMALLAS has a mesh size of 25×25 cm (10″x10″) which makes it the best alternative to agricultural raffia in cucurbitaceae and solonaceae crops. The larger mesh opening allows the laborer to work both sides of the trellis system by just sticking his hand thru the meshes during pruning, fastening or harvesting, all of which are common tasks in a field of cucumbers, tomatoes, peppers or even beans! With a tensile strength of over 60 Kilos per linear meter (40 Lbs/ft), HORTOMALLAS exceeds by far the needs of any seasonal vegetable crop. The fruit is not damaged once harvested, nor are the flowers broken in these operations. You reduce waste and save the number of passes the workers have to walk thru the furrows. By not frictioning the laborer´s hands against the leaves or fruits in a confined small opening that would damage the plant you increase the plant´s life and so the number of fruits you can pick, and the netting is preserved in better shape in case you chose to re-use it in the following cycle!
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.
