A shade net house is very effective for greenhouse growers who need to increase solar radiation on their crops during fall, winter and spring.
During summer, many growers will cover their crops with shade netting to protect them from high temperatures.
A shade net house can be used as a standalone structure or combined with other types of structures like hoop houses or unheated high tunnels.
Why you must use Shade Net
When planning your polyhouse, it is important to think about all of your options for crops that you wish to grow. You’ll want to take a few things into consideration before making a final decision.
One very important factor is how much sunlight your area receives on average per day.
This will directly impact what kind of plants can survive and thrive under these conditions.
Note that shade netting is not for use with tomatoes.
Also not for other plant species which require a lot of direct sunlight to prosper and produce fruit.
If you live in an area that sees enough sun each day but just doesn’t have enough hours, then a shade net is your best option.
If you’re going to use a polyhouse, chances are you’ll need some shade netting. Shade netting makes it possible to keep your house cool and give your plants the protection they need from sun, wind, pests, and other factors that can affect their ability to grow and thrive.
However, this netting is not only for agricultural uses. It is useful in other industries as well as residential use.
