An Overview of Crops Netting and Its Needs in Cultivations

Way of Cultivation

Providing and covering the crops using the net becomes one of the best processes in agriculture, horticulture, and even aquaculture. Hence most farmers are using that in their fields to grow and protect their crops and plants to yield more. There are different kinds of agricultural netting that existed and the farmers should know about all of those. Because each one has its own purpose and before using that should know about that is more important.  In this article let us see one of the netting named Crops Netting briefly as an introduction.

Crops Netting: This is one of the agricultural netting processes used to cover the whole crops and plants. It is well known that sunlight, soil, and water are the most important and basic needs to grow plants. But excess of all these will not favorable for the growth and yield. Hence it is the responsibility of the farmers to control these available sources to ensure the proper growth and yield. Crops netting is the best and simple way to control those parameters and if the crops or plants are covered using the agricultural netting then it helps to reduce the fall of sunlight over the plant. When the sunlight is limited then the water consumption of crops is reduced. Because the excess sunlight will not allow the crops to grow healthy and most of the time the excess sunlight will become the reason for the death of crops and plants. This kind of netting can be used to cultivate many vegetables, flowers, and even fruits. In recent times the prediction of weather is difficult and the netting is helping the farmers to protect from uncertain weather conditions and even harsh conditions.

  • Usually, there are many materials are used for agricultural netting whereas in that polyethylene is receiving more attention because it possesses a lot of advantages and also behaves as a UV inhibitor.
  • The material used for the agricultural netting should have a longer life and if compared to any other materials polyethylene have a better life.
  • Lightweight, less expansion, and shrinkage based on weather, and also not affected by humidity are of making this potential candidate for the netting process.
