Like many high-value crops, berry production is very sensitive to environmental conditions and carries a high degree of risk. Producers all over the world are constantly looking for ways to reduce the environmental impact on berry production and respond to the growing market needs and selective demands of consumers.
Strong, cold, or warm winds can be one of the greatest problems for growers, especially if you grow crops in tunnels. Wind can cause many unwanted effects, such as the removal or breaking of the plastic film, infraction, or deformation of the tunnel structure. As a result of strong wind blows (over 60 km/h), the joints on the structure need to be checked (couplings and front links), as there is a possibility of loosening.
Investment in effective windbreakers in agricultural practice can offer long -term benefits by providing better quality and plenty of crops. Next to the protection of your structure windbreakers will benefit crops, vegetables, flowering plants, and fruit-trees in tunnels or in an open field with the same effects.
There are two solutions:
1. Place windbreak nets directly on tunnels and protect your crops from wind, high insolation, and provide better ventilation during summer months.
2. Set up a windbreaks barrier as a protective wall and protect your crops from damage either in open fields or tunnels. Place the wind barrier always transverse to the direction that the wind blows. Every windbreak barrier protects crops for 8/10 times its height. We recommend the use of wooden poles for the installation of windbreak barriers because they have higher flexibility compared to concrete poles.
UV stabilized high-density polyethylene flat woven netting with permeability to air of 30% to 70%. Strong, resistant nets with light, medium, or strong windbreak power, in black, transparent, or green color. Reinforced selvages.
UV stabilized high-density polyethylene monofilament knitted thread woven net with light, medium or strong windbreak power, and permeability to air from 30% to 70%. Eyelets at every meter height, green color.
Berry fruits generally and blueberries especially are very attractive for birds, not just as a source of nutrients and water, but as well as vitamins and minerals (vitamin E necessary for maintaining their eyesight). Big isolated plantations in monoculture are especially vulnerable and damages can be measured by the entire production.
The simple solution for this problem is the application of knitted anti-bird nets. Anti-bird nets can be placed on the lateral openings of tunnels, on support structures in case of an open field or directly on berry plants.
