Green Houses & Plastic Tunnel

In glass house application, insect barrier, light transmission and shade are key to ensuring higher yields, less spoiling and closer control of the growth process.

Tuber

Tuber ►

Typically planted over winter and protected until the end of April. Early Potatoes are the most common example of these crops.

Tubers are generally grown on mound beds and have an important vegetative development.

Root and bulb vegetables

Root and bulb vegetables ►

Crops such as Radish, Carrot and Crops from the Allium family. All these vegetables are mainly sown. Their growth and yield can be enhanced by a structure that maintains the hygrometry necessary to improve the germination rate. Fleece with good homogeneity can prevent damage and compaction in the soil structure. Combined with rain this can cause the formation of a "crust" that is hard for seedlings to pierce. Crop cover creates a good thermal effect which improves seedling growth.

Root and bulb vegetablesRadish, Rutabaga, Turnip, Carrots, Onion, Fennel, Celeriac, Beetroot

Fruit vegetables, cucurbits and soft fruits

Fruit vegetables, cucurbits and soft fruits ►

Typical crops include strawberry, melon, zucchini, & cucumber. These plants have rough leaves and stems which can abrade and penetrate floating row covers. These vegetables, usually planted, need temperature and humidity to take properly. They generally have an important vegetative development

Fruit vegetables, cucurbits and soft fruitsStrawberries, Gherkins, Marrow / Zucchini / Squash, Melon, Peppers, Tomatoes

Leaf and stem vegetables

Leaf and stem vegetables ►

These vegetables can be either sown or planted. Planted crops are generally sensitive to shocks caused by temperature and humidity variation. Using a floating row cover can significantly reduce the risk of these shocks. Sown crops require a fleece to reduce crusting and maintain the humidity and thermal effect necessary to have a uniform germination. They generally have an important vegetative development.

Ornamentals

Ornamentals ►

Ornamentals includes lawn, young trees and ornamentals in nurseries. Fleece is used for overwintering of the plants in container and ensures an optimal winter protection against:

  • breaking of the exposed parts of the plants (frost, snow, wind)
  • dehydration of twigs, buds and leaves (conifers and evergreen plants)
  • bursting of branches
  • asphyxiation of the roots
  • freezing of the plant
  • sudden variations of temperature

It also protects the lawns in the case of global sowing or in case of overseeding.

Young Plants

Young Plants ►

Young plants include both vegetables and ornamentals that are grown under cover in nurseries before planting.
To maintain the optimum temperature and soil humidity, planted seeds are covered with Agryl. The plant growth is then early and uniform.
The duration of covering depends on the sensitivity of the species to high temperature.

Novagryl P30 (30gsm)

Novagryl P30 (30gsm) ►

Overwintering often exposes crops to high variations in temperature and prolonged exposure to damaging combinations of rain, wind & frost. Novagryl P30 offers a high thermal efficiency (thermicity) of 24% - 3 times greater than a standard Polyethylene film. combined with increased mechanical properties specifically to counter these conditions.

Application Info

Agryl 17 and 19 gsm provide an ideal product to help control the environment in glass houses, reducing burning and insect damage in crops. In confined spaces easy, safe installation is critical - Agryl is supplied in final roll width formats for simple manual deployment. Designed with high puncture strength per unit weight, Agryl is a robust material to create chambers within the greenhouse as part of insect control. For applications where the maximum light transmission requirements exceed the need for toughness, Agryl P17 offers an addition 1% light permeability - often empirically linked to 1% further growth.
