Covering orchards with low-percentage shade nets, like GEZI’s 20% agricultural shade cloth can significantly improve the performance of the orchard / vineyard. Part of the responses can be attributed to the filtering of the light spectrum by the nets, and part is due to physical protection and creating a friendlier micro-climate. Improved external fruit quality is insured because of less sun burns and wind scars, smoother skin and better colouring.
Furthermore, the low percentage sun shade nets reduce heat/chill stresses, offer enhanced photosynthesis and, importantly, better/less water usage.
GEZI products offer hazard Protection which include protection from excessive solar radiation, protection from environmental hazards (wind, hail, sand-storms and ice rain) and protection from flying pests (birds, fruit bats and insects).
Every roll of GEZI shade net carries a ten year guarantee against sun degradation.
