Diseases and pests of agricultural crops are a real scourge for producers. Huge funds are spent on plant protection. However, they usually struggle not with cause, but with consequences. Both in medicine and plant protection, there are two approaches: prevention and treatment.
Prevention is certainly more effective and cheaper.
One of the methods of prevention is the use of plant protection nets.
Many plant diseases are transmitted by insects and animals that feed on plants or their juice. How to protect yourself from damaging plants with insect pests and protecting plants from being infected by viruses, fungi and bacteria that insects carry?
The method is simple. Close the area on which plants are grown with a special plant protection net through which insects - pests cannot penetrate. This method is simple and very effective.
It should be noted that as a result of the sharp decline in the volume of pesticides used to control pests and diseases, or the complete abandonment of their use, we get an additional positive effect - environmentally friendly products, which is extremely important now time in the consumer market.
More and more farmers are using the new efficient technology, called NETHOUSE, that is, in free translation - House from the grid. The use of plant protection nets for this purpose is the main component of organic farming.
Currently, large areas of crops are covered with plant protection nets. Often, inexpensive and easy-to-install and operate NetHouse cultivations are used for this
Why are nets used for protection against pests?
In recent years, worldwide, more and more attention has been paid to issues related to the negative effects of pesticides on people and the environment. Consumers are increasingly rejecting agricultural products treated with pesticides. This trend to reduce the use of toxic substances will develop and intensify in the coming years as a result of public concern for their own health and the adoption of new, more stringent laws on environmental protection. Insect pests cause irreparable damage to agriculture: damage fruits, suck up plant juices, spread dirt and diseases, thus damaging plants, spoiling the presentation and reducing crop yields.
It is also known that agricultural pests become accustomed to chemical plants. It is easier and much more efficient, and as a result, it is more cost-effective to use plant shelters with a phytoprotective net.
Recently, in the cultivation of many crops around the world, nets have been increasingly used
to protect themselves against pests as one of the main means of controlling them. These devices are designed
to block the path for pests to the cultivation room in which
plants are located, and thus significantly reduce the use of pesticides.
Most often, protective nets are used for growing vegetables, spicy
herbs, flowers, as well as fruit and berry plantations.
Rooms that use these meshes:
Nethouse (grid house) & ndash; light structures, usually consisting of a light frame
, or pillars and cables, on which the network is stretched.
Greenhouses & ndash; in greenhouses, the network is tightened on ventilation openings
or the frame is fully covered with a network.
Arched greenhouses & ndash; these structures are fully covered with a network, or a combined network and polyethylene coating is used.
The insect nets prevent pests from entering the plants.
We offer you several types of nets of various densities. The number of holes in the network per one inch is measured in units of a mesh (mesh).
The choice of a mesh of a particular density depends on the type of insect that you have to fight.
It should be noted that it gives an additional positive effect: light scattering, light shading and reduction of fluctuations in day and night temperatures inside the structure.
17 mesh network
It is designed to protect against fruit flies (Mediterranean fruit fly, figs), grape wormholes and Deudorix livia on plantations and vineyards, and also protects from adverse weather conditions (hail, wind gusts, excessive solar radiation).
25 mesh network
Designed to protect exported peppers from the Mediterranean fruit fly.
40 mesh network
Intended for partial protection against whiteflies in cases where ventilation conditions do not allow the use of 50-mesh network.
50 mesh network
Designed to protect against whiteflies, aphids and mining flies.
OptiNet Grid & ndash; This is an advanced network of a new generation of insect protection, which has a combined mechanical and optical barrier.
