AGRICULTURE CITRUS / ANTI-HAIL SHADE NET

AGRICULTURE CITRUS / ANTI-HAIL SHADE NET

The use of Agriculture Citrus / Anti Hail Shade Netting has become a familiar agriculture practice in South Africa. In a study by Citrus Research International a worrying problem faced in the Citrus and Grape industry, is climate change and its effects on the industry.

During the past few years, high temperature extremes have increased, while low temperature extremes have decreased significantly.  Small fruit size problems have increased as well as water usage and fruit damage due to wind, hail and sunburn.

Agriculture Citrus / Anti-Hail Netting could provide significant solutions to fruit quality related problems as well as increased production.

Studies have found the following benefits of using Agriculture Citrus / Anti-Hail Shade Netting.

Citrus & Grapes

  • Nets reduce pest problems and wastage on trees and vines. They suffer little or no damage from sun, birds or wind.
  • Fruits are larger and more uniformly coloured due to reduced climatic stress.
  • The Net changes the microclimate beneath them. Higher humidity leads to reduced water usage.
  • The Net reduces light intensity, wind speed as well as buffering of temperature extremes and increased relative humidity.
  • The nets reduce the leaf and fruit temperatures.
  • Growth is more vigorous as the number and length of shoots increase under the nets.
  • Fruit yield increase significantly due to less fruit damage.
