We supply and install agriculture shade nets within east Africa to crop, fish, and livestock farmers. We have both woven and knitted nets available at different shadings and colours. Agriculture shade nets provide protection to a crop from excessive radiation and heat. They help the crop to retain moisture and grow vigorously, without any water loss stress.
Choosing Your Agriculture Shade Net In The Farm
A grower doing vegetable crop nurseries will need more shading than one with a mature crop under shade. A farmer in a hot lowland climatic zone will use a net with higher shading than one in a cool highland climatic location for the same crop, at the same stage of growth. During the hardening stage of a crop, a farmer will use a lighter net than the one used in the earlier stage of the crop.
Our available nets provide growers with a choice of 30%, 55%, 75%, and 90% shading. One can choose between green and black colors. The color of the net has no effect on its shading ability, but rather for blending purposes in the farm.
Grekkon Limited’s agronomy team advises clients on the right agriculture shade net to use based on; climatic location of the farm, age of the crop or growth stage, and the crop type. These three factors must be considered when choosing the right agriculture shade net to use on the farm. 90% nets are ideal for vegetable crop nurseries as the crop is very tender and vulnerable to heat stress. 75% nets are used in fruit trees or forestry nurseries because the plants are more heat tolerant than their vegetable counterparts. The choice of using 30% or 55% shade during the hardening stage depends on the state of the seedlings, and the prevailing climatic conditions.
