Shade Nets Prices In Kenya

Share

Grekkon Limited’s shade nets prices in Kenya to crop, fish, and livestock farmers are according to the shade net type. The types of shade nets for plants is defined by the light filtration rate, which is given as a percentage of the shade received from the net. For instance a net allowing in 45% light will be described as a 55% shade net. Our shade net rolls are 50M long, and 4M wide for all types of nets, and colors. These shade nets for sale in Kenya can also be cut from the roll during purchase, if the grower wants to procure only a portion of it. Our shade net installation cost in Kenya depends on:

  • The size of the shade house structure
  • Types of shade nets being installed
  • Frame type of the shade house; is it wooden or metallic?
  • The design of the shade house; is a flat or curved roof?

Farmers in Kenya buy crop shade nets that are woven or knitted which are available in different shadings and colors. We train farmers on how to choose a shade net in Kenya based on several considerations.  Shade nets for agriculture are placed as a cover on a metallic or wooden structure to create a shade house. Our shade net installation cost is determined by the size of the net to be installed

A shade house, like a greenhouse will be utilised commercially for the production of;

  • seedlings. for vegetable crops, tubers such as potato, fruits, and forestry
  • cuttings. for flowers and other ornamentals
  • ornamentals. flowers and other decorative plants
  • herbs and spices such as rosemary, geraniums, lemon grass, mint and others
  • vegetables such as cabbage, sweet peppers, carrot, coriander and others
  • fruit seedlings, cuttings and graftings
  • forestry seedlings, cuttings and graftings

Shade net fencing is another use of shade nets when they are placed along the plant edges as wind breaks, and to prevent livestock from accessing the crops. Our shade nets for sale are provided at the bottom of this article, prices included.

 

Shade nets in Kenya

 

Which shade net is best?

Our  agricultural shade nets to select from by a grower are determined by the shading required. For instance, 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.

Shade Nets Farming in Kenya; summary

Grekkon Limited is the place to buy shade nets in Nairobi because our agronomy team expertly advises on the right net to use.

These three factors must be considered when choosing the right shade net 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 tree 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.

Also i see that you do drilling of boreholes, what is the quote on 200mtrs, and solar pump installation? Thank you

        Reply
        • Good afternoon Jay,

          The shade net does not repel insects, for that, you’ll install an insect net on the sides, and the shade net on the roof. Our borehole drilling cost is from Kes 7,200 depending on the location (advise us on the precise location). For the solar pump, we can only quote for it after drilling and test pumping to understand the borehole yield, depth and pump setting level.
