Shade Net House


The Shade net house is a structure that is framed using certain materials like wood, pipes, and iron; with one of the materials, an outline of a house-like structure is constructed. As indicated by its name, the structure is covered by a net, but the one used here is not a regular net, but the one made of 100 percent polyethylene and threads that are specially used to stabilize the penetrating ultraviolent radiation. This shade net not only protects the crops from UV rays but also from the birds and pests as well. Also, it also acts as a climate controller and stabilizer. There are several advantages of using this shade net, such as maximizing the harvests in the summer season when the sun's rays are upright, and aiding in producing graft saplings.  

 These shade nets are available in different shade percentages, such as 15, 35, 40, 50, 75, and 90. The percentage mainly indicates the intensity of light that a particular shade net could cut down. For instance, the shade net with 40 percent would be able to reduce 40 percent light intensity. The net should be selected according to the plant's requirements. The need for sunlight and shade varies with each plant. Thus, it is vital to select the relevant percentage to obtain maximum benefit and also boost the plant's yielding.
