What are shade nets?

Shade nets are constructed of lightweight knitted polythene fabric that shields people and plants from the sun. Shade cloth fabric is offered in densities ranging from 50% to 90% to meet the specific requirements of various plants, flowers, and commodities. It may also be utilized in greenhouses, hoop structures, and in the field. Fences, windscreens, and privacy barriers are some of the other applications. The shade material is resistant to rot and mildew does not grow brittle, and is water permeable. It also promotes light dispersion, improves ventilation, and keeps greenhouses cooler. Therefore, shade cloth can aid in reducing energy expenses by decreasing the frequency of running fans throughout the summer. Both setting up and also pulling down shade net are quick and simple during the off-peak season.

When to use shade Nets for Agriculture

Light radiation is reduced by using shading nets for agriculture. Crops that flourish in low solar radiation regions are shielded from radiation damage when cultivated in places with (or during seasons of) high solar radiation. The production of such veggies may often be increased by utilizing nets with percentages ranging from 30% to 50%. Lettuce, Kale, and cabbage are examples of vegetables. Under a shadow net, indeterminate tomato types, some plants and flowers, and so on can thrive. In particular weather conditions. Tomatoes and capsicum, which are heat resistant, may also be planted in the shade or benefit from temporary shade protection during periods of excessive sun radiation.

Dark-colored nets, such as black and green, absorb significantly more sunlight, keeping the microclimate chilly. As a result, they are more suited to crops that grow in shadow, such as green leafy vegetables.

Because of the influence of shade, these crops will have larger leaves, grow higher, have more nodes, and will be able to thrive all year even in locations with blazing sunshine. Lighter-colored nets that reflect light rather than absorb it are better suited for blooming plants.
