What is a shade net?

Shade Net Suppliers in Kenya | Aqua Hub Kenya

Shade nets are light nets made of polyethylene knitted materials used to prevent plants from exposure to harmful ultraviolet heat and radiation, which is sometimes harmful to the growth of plants. Shade nets are sold in a different fabric density range, ranging from 30 to 90 percent. A 55 percent shade net will only allow 55 percent of light to penetrate, while a 90 percent will only allow light not exceeding 10 percent of light to penetrate.

How to choose Shade Nets for your Farm

The Choice of the right net for your farm is key to ensuring you hit the yield target accrued from your farm. The factors influencing the Choice of shade nets a farmer can settle to are the size of the farm or shade intended and the type of plant to be grown in the shade. Some plants require more light for photosynthesis, while others may need less light and hence may grow under high-density shades.
Water permeability is also a factor in choosing shade nets to limit hydration problems.
