Petrotech’s high-quality knitted shade fabrics are used in a broad variety of crops to exclude birds. Also to provide uniform shadow and to control air movement in greenhouses and nurseries. The tapes have UV resistant additives giving the net durability and longevity.
The net is recyclable and resistant to agrochemicals.
AgriShade is a series of colored shade nets with special optical properties which improve the utilization of solar radiation by agricultural crops. This technology can be used to stimulate physiological responses of crops, in manner which enhances their commercial value. This is an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to current labor-intensive methods (such as pruning and thinning) and use of growth regulators and other chemicals.AgriShade enables growers to control vegetative growth characteristics, such as leaf size, branch length and plant height in plants, as well as the rate of maturation and flowering. The changing annual climatic patterns and market led factors pose many challenges to the growers. Addressing these issues we have developed color spectrum solutions, in consultation with leading agricultural scientists in India.
It is inferred that the Blue AgriShade light control mechanism would contribute to changing the light spectrum transmitted to the plants, reducing the spectrum of red and far-red light and increasing the blue light spectrum. This leads to slowing down of development of the plant , and the obtained plants are more compact with dark green foliage. In flowering plants, flowering can be postponed and the grower benefits by the ability to direct the flowering time according to the market requirements. The net is most suitable for growers of potted plants who wish to reduce transport volume.
The net is flexible, light, strong and easy to spread. Available in 4 meter width Blue AgriShade is UV resistant . Custom UV stabilization and shade factor requirements for BlueAgriShade could be developed on request.
RedAgriShade changes the light spectrum transmitted to the plants, reduces the spectrum of blue, green and yellow light and increases the red and far-red light spectrum. Thus, the rhythm of plants development under red light is increased, their leaf surface is larger, their stems are longer and thicker, and the total foliage volume is higher. The net enables to obtain early flowering without decreasing flower quality. The net is suitable mainly for growers who wish to accelerate growth and increase foliage volume plants such as house plants, decorative branches, non-flowering herbs, and a variety of field and nursery plants, especially when the objective is to enhance the development of root systems in shoots and tissue culture plantlets. Flexible, light, strong and easy to spread, the net is available in a width of 4 meters. Custom UV stabilization and shade factor requirements for RedAgriShade could be developed on request.
