Shade nets, polyethylene fabrics, fulfil the task of giving appropriate micro-climate condition to the plant. When crops grown under controlled condition, shade net gives the protection to the plants against penetration of insects, butterflies and birds. Protection against natural weather disturbances against winds, hail and frost besides barriers is also other advantages of shade nets. Shade nets can be used within greenhouse and also as standalone shade net house.
Shade nets available in 35%, 50%, 75% & 90% based on the need of the plants and activities. 50% dense shade net would allow only 50% of the light incident whereas 90℅ would allow light no more than 10% to penetrate down on the crop. Other than agriculture, shade nets also used in construction, covering the stadium, parking shade etc.
