Fencing in horticulture
Screening in horticulture plays a crucial role in creating the ideal growing conditions for crops. Using various screening methods, growers can regulate the amount of light, heat, humidity and air circulation.
Horizontal screening is a widely used technique in horticulture. It involves placing a horizontal screen above the crop to regulate light penetration. This type of screening is mainly used to filter excessive sunlight, reducing greenhouse temperatures and protecting crops from overheating. Moreover, horizontal screening can also help reduce energy consumption by reducing heat loss.
Vertical screening is used to cover the side walls of the greenhouse. This allows the grower to better control light, temperature and air circulation. Vertical screens are often used to create shade, regulate temperature and ensure privacy.
Renovation of screens
Over time, screens in horticulture can lose their effectiveness or become damaged. Renovation of screens includes repairing or replacing old screen cloths, improving the structure and upgrading the screening system. By carrying out timely renovations, horticulturists can optimise the performance of their screening system and maintain desired growing conditions.
With a outdoor screen installation heat from outside can be kept out and the temperature inside the greenhouse can be lowered by up to several degrees. This allows the grower to ventilate less, reducing energy consumption. In addition, an outdoor screen is very flexible compared to chalk and the grower can always react in time to changing weather conditions.
Insect netting systems
Insect netting systems, is a specific type of screening used to protect crops from harmful insects. The fine mesh netting prevents insects from entering crops and causing damage. It provides a natural and environmentally friendly method of protecting crops without the use of pesticides.
VSV (Valk Screen Vision) systems are used to control greenhouse climate conditions. Because the screen fabric is pulled directly into the profile, the application of fabric clips is unnecessary. Work between crops at high heights is thus reduced to a minimum. Besides being fast, clean and safe, the system is also flexible. It is suitable for any fabric type.
Ultimately, screening plays an essential role in modern horticulture. It enables horticulturists to create optimal growing conditions and improve the productivity and quality of their crops. Whether it is for horizontal screening, vertical screening, renovation of screens, external screens, insect screen or ESL systems; each type of screening offers unique benefits and applications. By choosing the right type of screening and seeking expert advice, horticulturists can achieve the desired results and achieve successful harvests in horticulture.
