Agryl Black Mulch | Agryl P12 | Agryl P30 | Macro Tunnels | Micro Tunnels

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

Strawberries

Strawberries

With a 3-4 month covered period, growing regions from Norway to southern Europe and an abrasive structure, medium weights of Agryl are typically the best cover. It allows early fruit growth compared to strawberries grown in the open and those in plastic tunnels. To allow pollinisation, the crop has to be uncovered at the beginning of flowering

Gherkins

Gherkins

Gherkins are mainly covered to satisfy a demand for early gherkins by the food industry. Abrasive in nature, the cucumber plant requires protection using a medium weight cover depending on the installation. Agryl is typically recommended.

Marrow / Zucchini / Squash

Marrow / Zucchini / Squash

A low/mid weight fleece cover typically offers the most economically robust protection and can shorten growing periods by 7-15 days.

Melon

Melon

Melons are covered for approximately 4 weeks, during the late spring period. As an abrasive plant, a robust fleece is needed, however the short growth period and season reduces the requirements so light weight Agryl is typically used and can reduce the growth periods and strongly reduce the transmission of viruses.

Peppers

Peppers

The pepper plant requires vertical space. Agryl, thanks to its high abrasion resistance can be used in micro tunnel applications giving a protective envelope above the plant, while providing this space. The fleece tunnels protect plants from wind and pests. The vertical micro tunnel structure creates a high light transmission environment where the Agryl lets the plant breath.

Tomatoes

Tomatoes

Tomato plant growth on stakes requires space and a vertical orientation. Agryl, thanks to its high abrasion resistance can be used in micro tunnels applications which protect plants from wind and pests. The micro tunnel structure creates a micro-climate with high light transmission environment where the Agryl lets the plant breath. Tomatoes can also be grown flat without stakes and covered directly. The use of Agryl increases the commercial yield of tomatoes.

Agryl I (12gsm)

Agryl I (12gsm) ►

Agryl I is designed as a new approach to the economics of protecting crops from insects. Created as a super light weight product, it allows high air circulation and heat dissipation whilst offering chemical free insect protection for a wide range of crops

Novagryl P22 (22gsm)

Novagryl P22 (22gsm) ►

This product offers extended durability and thermicity for farmers who required strong performance in continuously exposed environments. Typically this will farms in more northerly countries, those planting sensitive crops in more demanding climates or installations with significant exposure to winds.

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.

Open Fields

Open Fields ►

Open Field applications require a robust fleece design with the ability for farmers to specify the exact performance requirements for their needs. Strength, moisture and light management and durablity are all critical.

Green Houses & Plastic Tunnel

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.

Macro Tunnels

Macro Tunnels ►

Macro tunnels are used to cover many beds in a single cover with space for farm workers to access the plants. These create the same climate conditions as micro tunnels.

Black Mulch

Black Mulch ►

Mulching improves plant growth by suppressing weed growth whilst creating a warmer, more robust soil environment for crop growth.
