Start a Agriculture Shade Net Business

(98)Start a Agriculture Shade Net Business 
Agro Shading provides protection from the harsh rays of sunlight in the Nurseries, greenhouses, Poly Houses, Apple Orchards, shade houses, Tea Estates etc., It not only controls sunlight and temperature, but also reduces evaporation; minimizes wind, hail and frost damages; mist rain; keeps out birds and insects and creates and ideal atmosphere that stimulates vigorous plant growth.

Agro shading net is a tough, extremely durable, tear resistant and light weight, knitted fabric. This product is made out of 100% High Density Polyethylene of International quality and is UV stabilized for long life.

Shade net Cloth is easily identifiable through various methods of construction and shade density. Selection of the shadenetting for a specific use is made by reference to the percentages of light that passes through the fabric (e.g. 40% shade cloth is equivalent to having 60% of the light passing through the fabric).
net shade cloth also have specially manufactured rows of reinforced eyelets that are made from a multifilament Polypropylene, which enables the shade cloth to be suitably tensioned during installation.
These eyelets are provided on all selvages for threading of edge wires and ease of insatallation. The eyelets also ensure the necessary resilience against high winds which would otherwise tear the cloth from the structure.
The extended life expectancy of the Alnet shade cloth, depends on the installation technique, abrasive actions and chemicals that come into contact with it.

Construction of net shade cloth
The unique construction of Alnet shadecloth and protective netting offers the following special features and benefits:
  • Knitted fabric - Extremely strong, durable, well finished and run resistant.
  • Manufactured from high density polyethylene.
  • Won't rot, run or absorb moisture.
  • Detergent washable.
  • Ultraviolet stabilized. Input of sunrays minimized.
  • Choice of densities. Proven protection, specific to vital induces. Eliminates heat buildup underneath cover.
  • Versatility of application. Gazebos, shadeports, plant protection, carports, window / door awnings and many other shade uses.
  • Heat set material. Ensures consistent shade densities and additional stability once suspended.
  • net shade cloth has rows of polyester reinforced eyelets to assist in the construction of shadecloth structures

How does shade cloth work?
Every plant has its own individual requirements for sunlight and shade under which it flourishes at its best. By providing the right balance with the correct grade of shade cloth, the optimum climatic conditions are created under which the plant's productivity is maximized.
Under these optimum conditions, photosynthesis is enhanced, and extremes of air and soil temperatures are reduced and moderated. Even more importantly, plant leaf temperatures are lowered to the same level as surrounding air temperature and it is this mechanism which accounts for the improved productivity of the plant.

Alnet Agricultural Shade ClothShade cloth has some useful benefits:
  • Air movement is restricted, thus reducing wind damage to the crop and evaporation of soil moisture
  • Air beneath the shade cloth stays humid which is of further benefit to the plant.
  • Shade cloth provides a physical barrier against hail and heavy rain and keeps many birds and insects off the crop

Vital Advantages of net Shadenetting:
  • Light control: Enhances photosynthesis by manipulating the amount and quality of light by means of various densities of netting.
  • Temperature control: Improves productivity by moderating extremes of temperatures. Prevents sun burn and frost damage. The special knitted construction "breathes", allowing hot air to escape.
  • Saves water up to 60%.
  • Saves on fertilizer costs.
  • Certain products are available, to reduce the cost and use of insecticides (Fungicide still necessary).
  • Reduces labour costs and provides a pleasant productive working environment.
  • Reduces wind, hail, bird and insect damage to crops.
  • High specs enhance performance.
  • High-density polyethylene material will not decay or absorb moisture.
  • Ultra-violet ray stabilization prevents degradation by sunlight.
  • Heat-setting ensures consistent colour and prevents curling.
  • Lock-stitch knitting method prevents tearing in fabric.
What percentage shade cloth for which crop?
There are no hard and fast rules - it varies regionally, and according to prevailing climatic conditions in each region. Advice can be obtained from the agricultural research bodies, or you can ask other successful growers in your region what they are using.
  • 30% and 40% shade cloth provide ideal conditions for germination of seeds and development of seedlings at this highly vulnerable stage of a plant's lifecycle.
  • 50% and 55% shade cloth are for flower cultivation and are recommended for general nursery stock.
  • The geographical situation of the site as well as the Local Climatic Conditions can also play a roll in determining the ideal shade requirement.
  • White shadenetting provides protection form the Ultra-Violet rays, but allows more light to reach the plant, thus speeding up it's growth rate.
