Novagryl P30 (30gsm)

Specifically designed for overwintering product and for use in extreme climates, Novagryl P30 offers the increased levels of strength required to reduce the risk of plant breakage due to snow or frost. This denser product helps to reduce wind damage, which includes branch splitting and dehydration. Managed airflow also creates the micro-climate required to minimise the impact of temperature variation on overwintering crops.

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.

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

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.

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 Technology

Novagryl P30 is a heavy weight cover specifically designed for applications. where protection rather than growth is the main focus. Harsher climatic conditions result in the need for a increased strength and P30 meets this with strength 65% of P17. Permeability to air and air movement are reduced by 25% to contribute to an enhanced thermal effect, and static water penetration is reduced by 40% to allow for the increased effect of wind driven rain.

Novagryl P30 is suitable for any crop overwintering or requiring protection for very high levels of exposure The manufacturing process used to create the product creates a material with comparable strength both across and along the roll, making it robust for applications at both ground level, and also when used to protect nursery stocks. This product provides winter protection not only for plants in containers, but also for vegetables.

Specific benefits include protection against the mechanical damage of frost and snow, sudden temperature variations and excessive drying out of the plant. It can allow the harvesting of crops despite frost.

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.

Garden Nursery

Garden Nursery ►

During Nursery growth, young plants are susceptible at lower levels of exposure than on maturation. Additional protective measures are often required to protect against damage.
