Why double walled Trellis Net Systems (or V Shaped Crop Support Netting)

Reduce Mechanical Stress and Disease Transmission

One could ask how to save labor in the task to tie and secure plants to HORTOMALLAS vegetable support trellis net and this double line netting installation for a vegetable support system could just be the most efficient solution for crop support
double wall trellis netting

One may reduce diseases spread mechanically by the work force by installing a double wall HORTOMALLAS trellis net system.

 There are plants like cucurbitaceae (cucumber, melons, zucchinis) that look for themselves of a way to reach height by attaching their vines to a trellising support such that will allow their leaves to have a better solar exposure, others like the solonaceae (tomatoes, chilies, peppers or eggplants) on the contrary need to be tutored and tied to a vertical support system to avoid branches to touch the ground and the fruits to become stained or rot.In the case of growing plants  that need to expand upwards but will need a support system (usually metal or wood posts woven with raffia twine) it is advisable to use a double netting wall, one on each side of the furrow and the row of plants, so that these may lean on the meshes of the horticultural crop netting and therefore save on the labor needed to fasten to the tutor (this double wall vegetable crop net is very common in Europe inside greenhouses).  Alternatively one can use a V shape crop support system, where the same roll of netting is folded in half and installed in a V shape whereby the plant grows at the bottom of the apex and expands inside the V (which is supported by posts) and the branches gently lean on the horizontal strands of meshes  (preferably a 25 x 25 cm opening, 10″x10″).     This type of netting installation is mostly used in the open field, where labor is a high percentage of the cost of growing and where one wants to reduce incidental damages from the worker for an excessive handling of plants or fruits.  for further info you may follow this link
